This stunning, emotional read wasn't what I expected and I loved every page. Though marketed as YA, I definitely think it has great crossover appeal, and the author doesn't shy away from harsh or uncomfortable subjects. As a lead, Daunis…

This was so good. Emotionally resonant, culturally rich, and engaging as all get out. I was fully engrossed in this book basically from the first page. There's something about Angeline Boulley's writing that's accessible, authentic, and…

So so good. A mystery/thriller set in the upper Michigan peninsula...full of loving Ojibwe cultural representation. An amazing, tough, prickly-but-loveable hockey playing lead character reminiscent of The Hate You Give's Starr.
