This book was fantastic! It is a post-apocalyptic novel that takes place in an Anishinaabe community. It is a slow-burn, but from the very first page I could tell that there was something sinister lurking. This is a story of family and community, a story of self-reliance and a connection to the land, and a story of racism and the outcomes of colonialism. I love the author‘s inclusion of Ojibwe language as well!

Insightsintobooks I love that this has Ojibwe in it. I know a bit of the language myself. I just requested it from Netgalley because of its use of the language. 11mo
candority @Insightsintobooks That‘s awesome! It seems like a difficult language to learn, but it‘s so beautiful. I hope your request is accepted! If not, the book comes out in October. 11mo
Melissa_J This sounds great! I‘m going to stack it 😊 I didn‘t realize Rice is an author, I only know of his video journalism on CBC. 11mo
