Reviews
"The writing is painful yet beautiful, bleak but ultimately hopeful. In this era of reconciliation, Cherie Dimaline's The Marrow Thieves is a work of speculative fiction that resonates and stays with the reader long past the last page."-- "Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic Jury"
"Cherie Dimaline creates a near-future world which distinctly echoes our own, current and past traumas that have come back to repeat themselves, fiction with a basis in reality that gives the narrative a sheen of hard truths, following the trials and tribulations of a relatable cast of characters and their struggles to survive, and live their lives with the love and safety denied to them."-- "Trillium Book Award Jury"
★ "A timely and necessary read...powerful and endlessly smart, it's a crucial work of fiction for people of all ages."-- "Quill & Quire, starred review"

"... a riveting, adventure-packed coming-of-age story whose orphaned hero, an Indigenous 16-year-old boy known as Frenchie, makes an arduous northward journey to what he and his companions hope will be relative safety, and finds community and culture in the face of violence and dehumanization."

-- "Best YA Books of All Time"
"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"
