American Heritage month! Though I could see where the story was going, I found myself looking forward to extra long walks and a lot of cleaning just to listen to Daunis‘s story of her life as part Ojibwe and what happens when an investigation is launched into a meth ring amongst her community. I put a physical copy in my Little Free Library and I really home someone takes it home to read ❤️ #ReadHarder23 ~read a YA book by an Indigenous author

5feet.of.fury I loved this book, loved Daunis. I just started Boulley‘s newest today but only got in a few pages 3mo
Cortg @5feet.of.fury I‘m looking forward to reading her new one after the new year! 3mo

I don‘t reach much YA books but I‘ve heard good things. Growing up in the 80/90s books by Native American writers were never assigned. It‘s so important to learn from others & not from the colonizer‘s prospective. This was a small glimpse of problems that continue to plague many Native American communities. It‘s definitely a story that sticks with you & helps with gaining perspective of what others face. #bookspin book

This is 100 percent a young adults books. That being said, the plot, mystery and strong female protagonist keeps you coming back to the book. I also really enjoyed learning about Ojibwe traditions, culture and community. 🖤

Hosting Angeline Boulley at my library was seriously a dream come true! She was so sweet, joyful, empowering, and gracious! I think the event went really well! The highlight of it, for me, was getting to take her out to dinner before the event! Having a nice two hour chat over a meal with an author I really love and admire has absolutely been the highlight of my librarian career so far! 💕📚💕

I heard a lot about this book.Maybe too much.I didn‘t like it as much as many seemed to.Perhaps it was the subject matter,which just didnt interest me.It wasnt badly written, and there were parts I enjoyed.I did the audio version,and felt that the narrator was good.All in all, I have mixed feelings.I liked learning about the American Indians and their customs.I read that this book is being made onto a Netflix series,which I‘ll most likely watch

An action/mystery story on identity, family and love. I appreciated the history, the critical look at what love and family and can look like. Maybe because I‘ve never been in similar situations but I felt like at times reality had to be slightly suspended during this read but overall I really enjoyed it!

Wow… if you‘re expecting teenage angst and a fun story, this isn‘t for you. The book touches on some very dark and very real issues facing indigenous communities across the continent. I went in blind simply based on the cover and it was an absolutely exhilarating read. You‘ll experience the full range of emotions with this one. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟I cannot recommend this book enough.

Fantastic! This book made me smile, cry, & think. Worth all the accolades, awards & pages (this is a #chunkster y‘all), this story of a young Ojibwe woman dealing with the challenges in her community is a thrilling mystery, coming of age story, & cultural exploration all rolled into one. While I own a lovely signed copy from when I met the amazing author, I recommend it in #audio as hearing elements of it in the Anishinaabe language is wonderful.

I didn‘t want to put this book down. I really liked how it was written by a Native American, about Native Americans. While I‘m sure it barely scratches the surface of a lot of issues I think it‘s good to know more about the cultures & traditions of the people that were here first, in addition to how they integrate their traditions & belief into modern society. Plus it was a fascinating story and I‘d love to read more like it.

This novel lived up to the rave reviews! Daunis Fontaine is a whip-smart, gifted hockey player excited to begin college. As she journeys to health despite recent personal tragedy her Ojibwe community becomes the center of an FBI investigation of a new dangerous drug. To help her community, Daunis agrees to help the FBI. Her snooping brings danger close and Daunis will be changed immeasurably by the end. Unpredictable with an emotional punch! 5⭐️s

It took me a whole year to get into this book, but I‘m so very glad I persevered. Past the teen hormones (and they‘re necessary because this is a book for teens first) and the thrilling FBI case, is so much heart and love for indigenous folks. I cannot do Firekeeper‘s Daughter justice in my review. It was beautiful. Parts made me sob. I saw a few things coming. I cheered Daunis on. I sobbed some more. #pop23 #meanttoread2022

I especially enjoyed getting to know Daunis and seeing how her many worlds connected and guided her through being an informant in her quest to take out the meth destroying her community. #NativeAmerican #Hockey

I‘ve known that we were going to be reading this book since last January. I‘ve had this very book in my house since June. Internet friend, I have not read this book. Oh well, no time like the present.

Printz Medal Winner, Morris Award Winner, American Indian Youth Literature Honor Book, and so many more (pictured below). Published 2021. This book is about a girl that‘s a member of the Ojibwe tribe and has dreams of going to college for a fresh start because she doesn‘t fit in at home. Great read for teens and young adults.

I am so glad I stuck with this one. It was a little slow in the beginning, but I loved the cultural aspect mixed with the mystery and I thought that the writing was excellent. The author really brought you into Native American culture. The story was engrossing and once I got to a certain point, I couldn‘t put this one down. Definitely a must read book and I can‘t wait to read more by this author.

Wow, what a ride! This book takes place in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and I live in Michigan and have been to the UP a couple times, so that was cool. I learned a lot about Native culture in the UP, and the story was very gripping. The main character gets involved in a drug investigation with the FBI, and it‘s very mysterious and action-packed! It‘s a long book, but it‘s a great read.

Late to the party on this I know. Was recommended by a friend last year. Maybe because its not my usual type of read it's been on my TBR for the last year, but I have to say I enjoyed it tremendously. It's a mix of Nancy Drew-ish mystery, a romance, a deep dive into Indigenous culture (Anishinaabe), and a great setting right here in Michigan's UP.

YA, but I would say late teens and up given the content. Full review: https://bit.ly/rvw-FireDautr

I really enjoyed most of this. Having grown up in the area and having family members who are Ojibwe, this was a cool experience reading the book. I enjoyed the dive into the culture and beliefs of the tribe, as well as the author‘s acknowledgment of how tough it is to be an indigenous woman. The stark reality and commonality of things like rape startled and saddened me. Really the only thing I did not like was the insta love story.
