First of all, thank you to Fierce Reads for an eARC in exchnge for an honest review!

Daunis Fontaine is a biracial and unenrolled tribal member of the Ojibwe nation. Though her plan is to move away and study medicine, she's stuck around to take care of her mother. She meets Jamie, a new recruit on her brother Levi's hockey team. After a shocking murder, some secrets, and a series of meth-related murders, Daunis joins the investigation, going undercover to uncover what is killing everyone in her town.

This was so so relatable. There's a quote "to some people you'll never be native enough" and it just really struck me. This is an amazing debut, and I definitely recommend it! Also makes for an amazing audiobook!

I've seen a few people talk about how they didn't like the drugs, but this is a problem in reservations, and I loved seeing this described and tackled by an Indigenous author.
