Sisters of the Lost Nation
Sisters of the Lost Nation | Nick Medina
A young Native girl's hunt for answers about the women mysteriously disappearing from her tribe's reservation lead her to delve into the myths and stories of her people, all while being haunted herself, in this atmospheric and stunningly poignant debut. Anna Horn is always looking over her shoulder. For the bullies who torment her, for the entitled visitors at the reservation's casino...and for the nameless, disembodied entity that stalks her every step--an ancient tribal myth come-to-life, one that's intent on devouring her whole. With strange and sinister happenings occurring around the casino, Anna starts to suspect that not all the horrors on the reservation are old. As girls begin to go missing and the tribe scrambles to find answers, Anna struggles with her place on the rez, desperately searching for the key she's sure lies in the legends of her tribe's past. When Anna's own little sister also disappears, she'll do anything to bring Grace home. But the demons plaguing the reservation--both ancient and new--are strong, and sometimes, it's the stories that never get told that are the most important. Part gripping thriller and part mythological horror, author Nick Medina spins an incisive and timely novel of life as an outcast, the cost of forgetting tradition, and the courage it takes to become who you were always meant to be.

Anna works housekeeping on weekends at the hotel attached to her rez‘s casino and is a high schooler during the week. But then things change a bit when she‘s asked to do some special jobs at work and continue to keep her head down. This is a little slow to start, but a good exploration of the exploitation of Native women and girls as well as a conversation about gender fluidity. This is an adult novel, not YA, and it‘s quite good.

paper.reveries Definitely adding to my TBR! 3w
