Staff Reviews

What a powerful story of a young Ojibwe woman living in the UP of Michigan, who becomes involved in an FBI investigation into the source of meth in her community.  This is a young adult book, but I know it will have crossover appeal to adults.

Spring 2021 Kids Indie Next List

“This debut grabbed me from the start and kept me totally immersed in the story of a strong, self-described nerdy young female struggling with the normal problems of belonging, with the added element of being half Native American. This novel offers a rich combination of a young person’s struggle with identity plus the unique challenges of being associated with a tribe and the problems of meth use and addiction. Add in a pulse-pounding mystery on top of it, and you have a true page-turner.”
