Reviews

"Set in Alberta, this introspective, character-driven story examines heavy topics, including Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, depression, and anti-Blackness, with sensitivity and compassion. This sophomore outing by Michif/Métis and white author Ferguson features lyrical prose that softens the emotionally fraught narrative without sacrificing suspense, resulting in a mystery that subtly builds to a shocking reveal." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Through a well-characterized ensemble cast, Ferguson, who is Michif/Métis and white, addresses the myriad difficult topics facing her characters with sensitivity and care. -- Horn Book (starred review)

"[The characters'] actions galvanize their town and expose the racist and toxic underbelly of the most influential people there. This story touches on many contemporary issues as part of their everyday lives and will have broad appeal. A first purchase." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Via an intersectionally diverse cast, this character-driven story by Ferguson tackles macro-level issues such as anti-Blackness as well as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit Individuals alongside familiar teenage troubles surrounding friendship breakups." -- Publishers Weekly

"Ferguson's stirring narrative from multiple points of view features a friendship breakup, a manifestation of depression as perfectionism, and racism in the 'corrupt colonial country of Canada.' Achingly stunning prose, 'absolute mischief, ' and exhilarating kisses compel a fast read." -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)
