First of all the cover art is absolutely gorgeous. I love that our author Angeline Boulley wanted and saw a need for modern stories of native peoples in the US. The inclusion of traditions and language of the Ojibwe people was what I loved the most about this book. She not only incorporated her culture and language beautifully, she created a story and characters who are so unique and intriguing. The protagonist Daunis feels caught in between her two worlds and the tragedies her family has suffered recently are weighing on her. When she witnesses a murder that changes everything she has to make a decision. Daunis is the only one with the knowledge to help her community before it is destroyed by more deaths. I read this book in one weekend. I seriously couldn't put it down and learned so much. Pick this one up because it is the whole package.
