About the Author

Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock was born and raised in Alaska. She worked many years fishing commercially with her family and as a reporter for Alaska Public Radio stations around the state. She was also the host and producer of "Independent Native News," a daily newscast produced in Fairbanks, focusing on Alaska Natives, American Indians, and Canada's First Nations. Her writing is inspired by her family's four generations in Alaska.

Reviews

A William C. Morris Award Finalist
A New York Public Library Best Book for Teens, 2016

"An exquisitely drawn, deeply heartfelt look at a time and place not often addressed. Hitchcock's measured prose casts a gorgeous, almost otherworldly feel over the text, resulting in a quietly lovely look at the various sides of human nature and growing up in a difficult world." --Booklist, Starred

"Using alternating narratives, debut novelist Hitchcock deftly weaves these stories together, setting them against the backdrop of a native Alaska that readers will find intoxicating. . . . will resonate with readers of all ages." --Publishers Weekly

"An affecting story of fractured love and surprising redemption." --Shelf Awareness, Starred

"A multifaceted glimpse into [a] rich cast of characters. . . . An excellent debut." --SLJ

"The Alaskan author depicts places and an era rarely seen in fiction for teens....All benefit from her journalist's eye for detail." --Kirkus Reviews

"Grounded in emotional honesty." --The Horn Book

"An honest, gritty, and moving portrait of growing up in Alaska. Only someone who knows and loves this place through and through could tell this story. This book is Alaska." --Eowyn Ivey, author of the New York Times bestseller The Snow Child

"As only a native of Alaska can, Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock blends narratives of indigenous and non- into a buffet of pain and beauty. Highly recommended." --Tim Tingle, author of the series How I Became a Ghost
