Reviews

"Dimaline's story resonates with me. It will resonate with other Native readers, too…This story is one I'm carrying. It is about caring, about love, about how people can continue, and will continue…I highly recommend The Marrow Thieves."--Debbie Reese, American Indians in Children's Literature
★ "Miigwans is a true hero; in him Dimaline creates a character of tremendous emotional depth and tenderness, connecting readers with the complexity and compassion of Indigenous people. A dystopian world that is all too real and that has much to say about our own."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
★ "Dimaline writes elegant prose that grabs the reader and carries them into this dark and passionate world. The author has created a rich work of postapocalyptic fiction without the dense exposition often found in the genre. A riveting science fiction novel that is a must-buy for any library seeking to expand their teen collections."--School Library Journal, starred review
