This graphic novel anthology brings to light the stories of Canadian Indigenous Peoples and their history of colonial resistance. As someone not as familiar with Canadian history, I appreciated the introductions and timelines before each story. These were all compellingly told with varied art styles represented. Overall, a vibrant, informative, and powerful collection.

We have a story for everything. In the end, they all mean one thing.
Life.”

Several of Midge‘s pieces, particularly the longer more reflective essays, were spectacular. There were even a few shorter satire pieces that made me thing about privilege in new ways, particularly related to language. Sadly, this suffered from bad packaging. ⬇️

psalva I got reading whiplash a few times, surprised by the tone of each piece to the point of needing to pause and assess what I was reading. Was it satire, reflection, meme-like humor, or shit post? In the end I was unsatisfied with the book as a whole, but I will look for Midge‘s other work and give it another shot. 2mo

This was stellar. Cash‘s character was extremely dynamic and her relationship with Wheaton pulled at my heartstrings. The last 20 pages were so suspenseful, and the ending left room for the sequels without being disappointing on its own. I have already put a hold on the next installment at the library.

This book is most effective if you go in knowing very little about what you're about to read. So I'll call it a pick and leave it at that!

This one will be heading out soon for its #LMPBC journey! @BookishTrish @Read-y_Picker @DinoMom

Cinfhen @Hooked_on_books sent me this book but I wasn‘t able to get into it/ I NEED to try again because Holly really liked it and we usually feel the same about most books. 2y
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen It‘s SO good! But here‘s the thing: early in the book it‘s a bit repetitive and almost boring. But that‘s on purpose! It sets up what‘s coming so well and then you cannot put it down. So at least get to the point that you know what‘s happening before you give up. 2y
TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen i agree with what Holly said. It is fairly repetitive in the beginning, it lulls you into thinking you know what's going on, you know what the story is. It's worth sticking with it until it flips before you decide if it's a book for you! 2y

Based on the author‘s own life as a mixed heritage Cree/Lakota/Scottish woman, this quiet novel follows a girl from childhood years to adult motherhood in British Columbia. Each short chapter has a teaching message about issues such as belonging, racism, alcoholism, self esteem, residential schools, the sixties scoop, and reconnecting to cultural traditions and spirituality. Wholesome #IndigenousLit, suitable for teens. #canadianauthor

Lindy Is it just me, or does this cover remind anyone else of feminine hygiene packaging? 4y
Augustdana 🤣🤣🤣🤣 now that you mention it! Needs more pink! How will I know it‘s for women if it‘s not all pink? 4y
KathyR It's the blue of the Tampax box for sure. 4y
Lindy @Augustdana Good point about pink, and this light shade of turquoise seems also to be reserved for women, as in the case of tampax ( @KathyR ‘s comment.) 4y
