Firekeeper’s Daughter is about a girl named Daunis. She’s at the end of her senior year and tragedy has struck her family causing her to change her plans for her future. Things begin to change when a new guy, Jamie, comes to town and joins her brother’s hockey team. More things happen, but my advice would be to go in not knowing much more than that.


This book was so good! I loved that it felt like a step up from YA, but wasn’t quite Adult either. It was heavy material and addressed in a thoughtful way. I loved learning about her connection to the Ojibwe tribe. It was beautiful and brought in a whole new element to the story. The audiobook was a great way to consume this story. It helped bring emotion and understanding. I liked the twists and turns this book took along the way. At times Daunis did come off a little older than she was supposed to be. She’s definitely mature for her age, but at times it felt too advanced. (Trying not to spoil). Even if you aren’t a YA reader, I highly recommend you give this one a shot! A contemporary story and a mystery component with a little bit of romance thrown in what more could you want?

4.5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
