Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley
Ever a slight outsider within her Sault Ste. Marie community as an unenrolled Anishinaabe descendant on her deceased father’s side and a member of one of the town’s wealthiest white families on her mother’s, Daunis has long felt pulled between worlds. But suddenly her tangled family ties, love of hockey, and passion for science uncomfortably collide as she investigates a string of drug-related deaths in the community–deaths that hit Daunis way too close to home. Filled with Anishinaabemowin phrases and compelling cultural context, Boulley’s immersive YA thriller packs a big punch that will stay with readers for a very long time.
Ravage the Dark by Tara Sim
A story of revenge and rage turns into a tragic tale of loss and grief. The explanations of what grief feels like and the depth of emotion in this novel were incredible. Fantastic end to a unput-down-able duology. Tara Sim is truly an incredible writer.
Our Lady of Perpetual Hunger by Lisa Donovan
I fell in love with Lisa Donovan throughout the course of this book. Scrappy and headstrong, she tells her story in the vivid and wide open way in which she lived. Foodies will love the unvarnished look into the restaurant industry, but anyone can love this big-hearted story of a woman who faces the past in order to walk clearly into the future.
