Likely an #unpopularopinion but while I found this debut to be readable & more entertaining than not, I didn‘t love it. The writing is solid, setting fantastic, as is everything we learn about Ojibwe culture, it has a strong female lead, & the story is timely, but there‘s little mystery, narrative threads with no real conclusion, & a scene incorporated so inelegantly & unnecessarily it completely derails the story. A great book with more editing.

This was a great young adult book. This is coming from an old adult, but a young adult recommended it to me. A little romance, a little mystery, and lots of native culture references. And hockey. I loved the main character and her aunt. I‘m putting this on my Will Read It Again stack.

Started off loving this story, but then I think it dragged a bit in the middle. I usually love a romance, & at first I wanted the MCs to get together. But, I think it would have been better without the ya romance trope, with them just having a friendship. The last chapter was a perfect ending. ❤️ enjoyed learning so much about the Ojibwe culture & plan to look up the words later to learn better pronunciation.

This… was an heartbreaking, thrilling and heartwarming debut. I couldn‘t let go of the words and the wisdom that were shown in every page. As well as, the characters actions and build-up to the ending was truly a sight to read. How Dauni‘s story and journey showed even of a time of grief you can come out stronger and fight for the rights you deserve.

Excellent book! Modern novel/mystery set in Sault Ste Marie on an Anishinaabe reservation. Strong female lead and a compelling story. I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to believe it was a debut novel. Strong two thumbs up!

I read a lot of Fantasy, but I absolutely loved this present day novel. The story was heartwarming and sad. I fell in love with the Anishinaabe culture and everything I learned through this story. I felt like the setting itself became a character as well- it was so important to the story. Definitely recommend!

#MMDBookClub 2022 Summer Reading Guide

Since I am originally from Michigan, this story held a lot of meaning and memories for me. But you don‘t have to be familiar with the area to enjoy this amazing young adult mystery.

Eighteen-year-old Daunis has never quite fit in, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. She dreams of a fresh start at college, but when family tragedy strikes, she puts her future on hold.

GondorGirl This book was really phenomenal! 3mo

This is my surprise love of the year. I definitely judged the book by the reading group sticker and put this one off, I don't normally like Reese Witherspoon picks but this one I legit could not put down the characters stuck with me hard until I was able to read more.
Solid writing, character development, and storytelling.

5feet.of.fury Agree! I don‘t even really like YA. Wasn‘t expecting much from Reese. I LOVED this one. 3mo

So— I THOUGHT i knew a lot about this book going into it… Even with a handful of spoilers and a rather detailed back cover, this book still surprised me over and over. Nicely-paced and easy to read, wildly intricate plot, and some lovable characters. The book covers drug abuse, bigotry, violence, sexual assault, grief… but it‘s not presented in an overly-visceral way. its a remarkably easy and compelling read with complex topics

IuliaC Great review! I've got this one stacked too :) 4mo

This is a fantastic book about Daunis, a Native American Nancy Drew, and her great adventure.
It‘s got romance, sports, suspense and drama. It made me angry, tearful, shocked and hopeful. A great novel by a diverse author. Great for ages 16-109! #youngadult Warning: sexual assault

I stayed up late to finish this book. It was great! I loved learning more about Indigenous culture in the Sault Sainte Marie area while engaging in a good thriller with captivating characters.

Favorite quote: " We love imperfect people. We can love them and not condone their actions and beliefs."
This has been a hard lesson for me to learn as an adult.

This book was fantastic. This will probably be one of my top reads of the year. Though it is a YA mystery, don‘t avoid if you dislike YA. This book has so much depth, fascinating culture, characters and suspense. Though there is a central love story, this is not a romance. There are some content warnings that I will share in comments. 5⭐️

I‘m hesitant about YA mystery after running into “only the teen can solve it and all the adults are idiots!” Which doesn‘t work for me at all. But after seeing @Cinfhen ‘s review I thought I‘d give this a try and it‘s really good! Not only do the teen characters seem real, but this doesn‘t shy away from showing the difficult reality faced by Native women. I‘m so glad I gave it a chance.

5feet.of.fury I really liked this one too! And I agree, the sleuthing was done in a way that made sense, using her connections to her friends and tribe. 7mo
Cinfhen Yay!!!! It was much better than I expected & I enjoyed the Indigenous representation. There were some eye-roll moments though 😬 7mo

Daunis Fontaine witnesses a murder of a dear friend that‘s related to a local drug operation. She‘s forced to go undercover for the FBI w/ someone she already knows. Together they investigate who‘s running the drug operation that are killing multiple people.
This book was such a beautiful read. As a Native American myself, I found this book to be such a joy to have a strong female main character. I enjoyed most of the plot, mainly the ending.

Stunning-
Own-voices indigenous mystery: teen Daunis is grieving her uncle‘s passing when another tragedy strikes. Her community is being torn apart by drugs and violence & she‘ll do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of it while protecting their traditions.

More 21 Jumpstreet than Nancy Drew. Boulley conveyed the history ¤t issues between indigenous communities &the US government &traditions to the reader in a natural, immersive way⬇️

5feet.of.fury I also really enjoyed the MC being somewhat atypical. She not small, chaste or naive. So many books with teenagers seem to present sex as a taboo subject. Teens know what sex is. But the romance was still very sweet and there are great examples of asking for consent, which I just love to see. 7mo

Genre: Mystery/Thriller
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I finished this one last week and I absolutely loved it. This was Angeline Boulley‘s debut novel and she knocked it out of the park. While it is a standalone, I do wish it was at least a duology so I could have more story.

Even though this was a mystery/thriller, I really enjoyed reading about the different tribal traditions in regards to everyday life.
