Exciting and ground breaking Indigenous lit! First Eden Robinson book for me and can't wait for the second Trickster series book. Jared was my favourite character in a long time -I'm a sucker for a hyper-responsible teenager protagonist. I was expecting some of the content, like alcoholism and broken families as the legacy of colonialism, but that was even told in a way that I would have loved it even without the amazing magic and myth combination that picks up as the book progresses. I love her sense of humour in the midst of serious stuff as well. These are stories that have been waiting to be told. Huychqua, Eden!
