Michigan Native thriller, slow to start and then non-stop submitted by mowjac on April 30, 2021, 7:00am I loved this book! Daunis is a realistic teen, on the cusp of moving into adulthood. Her world isn’t simplistic: there is racism, drug addiction, untrustworthy adults, but also joy, love and family. We are immersed In Anishinaabeg culture while being pulled along in a thriller. Themes of identity, tribal status, trust and mortality offer much food for thought. Plus, it’s set in Michigan, giving it an anchor in reality. I would recommend for older teens, with the caveat that violence against Native women is part of the plot and may need support.

Fantastic for older YA readers submitted by sseaver on July 27, 2021, 3:38pm I thought this book was excellent. The main character Daunis, is of mixed racial background. The story highlights her navigating those two communities. The book is set in the UP so has fun references for any of us Michiganders! I also enjoyed learning more about the Anishinaabeg culture. The overall plot has a bit of a Nancy Drew vibe to it in the solving a mystery sense.
There are some more sensitive topics covered - drug usage & violence against women in particular. In my opinion they were addressed appropriately within the context, and definitely opens the door for discussion afterwards.

So good! submitted by jacatanz on August 2, 2021, 5:13pm I recently got this book prior to a UP trip and it was perfect! The main character is so likable and I learned alot about the Native culture in the UP through her. Easy read, I couldn't put it down! Highly recommended.

Amazing book submitted by manz on January 7, 2022, 11:46am I loved this book! Daunis is such a strong character. There is so much heart and depth to this story and her adventure. And a bonus that it is set in Michigan, written by a Michigan author, and has hockey!
