★ "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
