I'm joining @Andrew65 in #12Booksof2021, sharing the remaining months all at once! This YA book is a ton of fun! I love the ghosts, and Elli‘s ghost dog companion. I especially enjoyed seeing her exploration of what she can do with prehistoric ghosts. This magical realist book is playful and never takes itself too seriously, and has wonderful representation throughout. #LGBTQ #NativeAmerican #Ghost #2021WrapUp

Definitely worthy of all the accolades it‘s received, this story about a teen who meets her cousin‘s ghost and learns that he was murdered, & didn‘t just die in a car accident as everyone believes, is rich in magic, the supernatural, Lipan Apache lore & culture (the author is an enrolled member in the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas), & is a very satisfying mystery. Great illustrations throughout. A fantastic YA book. Highly recommended.

Can I interest you in a YA fantasy book about a young woman who can raise the dead and her adventures with her ghost dog? Thought so. This is a fascinating book, beautifully written, about injustice against Native and marginalised peoples, vengeance and coming of age. With a ghost dog.

Awesome middle grade/YA storytelling based on ancestorial and secret knowledge with a bit of fantasy thrown in. I especially liked the truths of American history from an Indigenous person's view.

At one point, Little Badger writes “Don‘t rush stories. That‘s sacrilegious.” I think this may have been a bit of meta-commentary, getting ahead of the criticism that her book is too long — because it is…but just a little! Her story of an asexual, 17-year-old Lipan Apache girl (with OCD) trying to solve the mystery of her cousin‘s murder with the help of her ghost dog & her cheerleader bff, Jay, is enchanting. 👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: The mix of her family‘s folk legends & oral stories along with some monster lore readers may be more familiar with “sucked” me right in (pun intended). I didn‘t expect the story to be so focused on vampires but I was into it! It‘s been awhile since I‘ve indulged my latent vampire obsession (thanks Buffy) so I was delighted. Commentary about racism, dispossession, & monoculture abounds but it never detracts from the narrative, only adds to it. (edited) 2mo
monalyisha **After reading some other reviews, I do want to comment on a popular criticism. Like others, I also felt that Ellie reads younger than her 17 years. I couldn‘t tell, though, if it was because of my cultural biases (is it because she‘s so close with her family — or because she‘s disinterested in romantic relationships?) or if it was something more intrinsic to the writing. So, I left it out of my review. But it did give me lots to ponder. 2mo

So fun! The world building is wonderful, and I really enjoyed getting to know Elatsoe and her powers. The legends of Six Great and the glimpses into stories from Lipan Apache folklore added a lot to the story, but there was a long period where it felt like we hadn't had one in too long (it felt a little unevenly mixed). Overall, I really enjoyed this read. #Ghost #Asexual #Vampire #NativeAmerican #Dinosaur

I liked this alternate America where the supernatural and natural worlds blend, including Indigenous spirituality and customs. Elatsoe is a great teen protagonist, excited to figure out her powers to raise the dead and at the same time blind to how much danger she could actually be in. The values of family and friendship run strong, and I look forward to reading more by this author.

I'm having trouble getting a handle on who this is aimed at/Ellie's age in the story. It feels really young, and then she says things that make me realise she's meant to be older. Ooops.

kellyann28 I just finished this and feel the same! She feels like she should be 13. 3mo
monalyisha I felt similarly. I didn‘t include it in my review because I couldn‘t tell if it was really a flaw or if it was me projecting cultural biases. Did she feel young because she was so close with her family? Because she was disinterested in a romantic relationship? I still don‘t have answers! It gave me plenty to think about! 2mo
shanaqui @monalyisha It kept tripping me up! I don't think it's her being ace, for me, since I am as well. I think it's something about the narrative voice. "Simple" is the wrong word -- maybe "straightforward"? Blunt, almost? I usually associate that type of voice with significantly younger protagonists. 2mo

This is my book club choice for my Habitica challenge this month, so I hope to start today... I don't actually know much about it, though! I did see Darcie Little Badger on a panel about asexuality, at Worldcon in Dublin, but I kind of hated that panel (can't quite remember why, but IIRC it felt like there was a rather stereotypical view of asexuality being promulgated) so I actually don't remember much about what she said...

Delayed May wrap-up: Elatsoe was definitely my favorite - a not-too-overly magical murder mystery with a strong theme of family and a subplot of displacement. Searcher was for a book club, and was OK. I should have bailed on Obsidian Tower 10x but was too proud to DNF it, because it had all the elements of a book I‘d like but just did not execute well. The rest (which I‘m sure you‘ve seen hyped), I would definitely also recommend.

Elatsoe is a contemporary urban fantasy/mystery full of ghosts, fairies, and vampires and Lipan Apache history and culture. Darcie Little Badger has created an enjoyable MG/YA novel with a balanced mix of humor and horror. I loved Ellie's relationships with both her friends and her parents, and it is wonderful to see asexual representation in a MC that is handled beautifully.

I loved the world-building, aesthetic, and Halloween vibes of this spooky and beautiful young adult fantasy book. But I didn‘t feel very compelled by the plot and the audiobook detracted from the story—a little monotone and no differentiation between voices. Still, I enjoyed spending time in Elatsoe‘s world (and underworld)!

Very much enjoyed this YA specfic/urban fantasy/mystery with Lipan Apache #ownvoices rep and an asexual main character which is all about privilege and family and how gooddogs never really leave us. The main character is 17years old and can raise animal ghosts, and she ends up investigating a cousin's death. Parts of this book are pretty spooky and/or sad, but the tone was otherwise a little younger than expected.

This was such a fascinating world where the supernatural run rampant and the world is shaped by ancestral magics. Ellie (Elatsoe) has the ability to raise the spirit of dead animals, the most important one is her ghost dog Kirby.
Ellie is Lipan Apache, identifies as asexual and is the coolest character ever. She‘s smart and clever. The illustrations at the top of each chapter are beautiful.
Part mystery, fantasy and horror this is an amazing book.

This felt very much like a middle grade novel which I don't generally read, but I did enjoy. I think it's a great book for the audience that it is aimed at. I felt that the storyline was quite quirky and original and it was a nice feel good book that left you with a sense of faith in family and those we make family.

LazyOwl

This story had a very unassuming way of weaving in supernatural elements into its story. The supernatural elements were fun but I felt that they weren't the main event. My main take from this book was the sense of family history and the support Elatsoe has from her family and friends.

A feel good, fun quick story with a satisfying conclusion.

There is a blending of time, reality, traditions, and cultures. There is a mingling between the dead and the living. Vengeance recognizes no barriers. Darcie Little Badger tells a story of intense grief and crazy adventure with a dry humor.

I made Frangelico caramel sauce to use up a bit more of my massive carton of cream. I‘m gonna try to freeze most of it, but this pitcher‘s destined for my mum. She just had her thyroid out & needs to eat lots of ice cream, with or without caramel sauce.

I made a good start on ELATSOE, too. It‘s always nice to find an asexual protagonist who loves dogs! Even better: her ghostly pup is a spaniel. I‘m biased towards spaniels these days. #audiobaking

Text: There were no clues, no warnings that hinted at his violent death. If lives were books, his final chapter came too soon and belonged to a different genre.
Really fascinating fantasy that looks at magic and power, and the family stories we tell, in a compelling murder mystery kicked off when Elatsoe's cousin's spirit is able to visit her long enough to identify his murderer.

Fantastic debut! Set in an alternative US with fae, vampires, ghosts, and wizards. Elatsoe is a Lipan Apache who's cousin is killed in a rather suspicious town. She, along with her friends, family, and ghost dog have to find out what truly happened and keep it from happening to others. I loved how determined Ellie is to do the right thing and protect those she loves.

I‘m reading Elastoe, trying to figure out if it‘s appropriate for my 10 year old step daughter. Personally, I don‘t think there should be many restrictions on kids reading choices, but this is tricky as a stepmom. My husband & I just got into an argument about it. How do you determine what is appropriate for your kids to read? Any step parents out there trying to navigate this?

TrishB I haven‘t had to decide for any step kids sorry, I can imagine it‘s a bit of a minefield. I was very liberal though! 12mo
Literary_Siren I agree about no restrictions on their reading choices but some books have heavy sex scenes which I don‘t want my 14 year old daughter reading. Other than that she‘s free to read whatever. I want to let her read The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue but after just finishing it I know that some of the scenes aren‘t appropriate. 12mo
Pruzy In all honesty, reading stuff that was mildly inappropriate when I was younger, I didn't even realize what I was missing 12mo

Amandajoy @TrishB it is! I would like to be more liberal, but I also know they may not be here to talk about any content. But they‘ve started asking me for recommendations (yay!), & my step daughter wanted to read the tagged book when I‘m done. 12mo
Amandajoy @Literary_Siren yeah, I think there are books that I wouldn‘t necessarily put into their hands, but I wouldn‘t stop them if they picked it up on their own. 12mo
Amandajoy @Pruzy I was the same way. And I think some things that parents see as a big deal in a book kids don‘t. 12mo
CBee Honestly, if my very good but reluctant reader picked up ANY book and started reading it on his own, I would frolic about the house in utter bliss 😂😂😂 12mo
Tamra Hmmmm, tricky situation. I agree with others that I wouldn‘t necessarily restrict kids‘ own choices, but recommending or encouraging is another especially if another parent is involved. Conflict between caretaking adults tends to have trickle down consequences for kids. 12mo
Amandajoy @CBee my 10 year old is just getting into reading after struggling so I want to encourage that. My 12 year old would prefer video games... 12mo
Amandajoy @Tamra that‘s kind of where I‘m at. My step daughter read the blurb for the tagged book on the way home from the bookstore and wanted to read it, so I‘m trying to figure out if she should. If I was her bio mom I wouldn‘t hesitate, but it‘s tricky, especially since my husband and his ex don‘t have a great relationship. I don‘t want the kids to end up paying for it. 12mo
Tamra @Amandajoy maybe the child should ask the biomom and then leave it at that? 12mo
CBee @Amandajoy my son is alll about the video games. If he reads, it‘s usually for school or if I‘m reading to him. But picking up a book on his own is what I‘m hopeful for at some point. 12mo
Chrissyreadit @Amandajoy that is tricky! I do not give any restrictions- for my kids- I agree with above suggestion to ask her mom. But if she‘s old enough to to take it out of the library, then she could be reading anything on her own- if that makes sense. So would the book be in a section she could access and borrow it?

This book had such potential! I just couldn't get lost in its crazy/mish mosh/over saturated world. It had a lot going on like: vampires, ghosts, ghost whisperers, ghost pets (including a temperamental ghost dinosaur) bat people, coyote people and a nefarious, devilish deviant, most likely immortal, (human?) antagonist. Sounds pretty entertaining right? Nope! What a letdown. DNF @ 47%

This book was incredible. I expected a murder-mystery, but what I got was troubles Native Americans are trifled with. Especially in a world of vampires and fae folk. Ellie is an amazing character, descendent of a family who can raise dead ghosts. When a cousin dies of mysterious causes, she sets out to determine the real cause. What entails is an incredible story of Ellie searching for justice in a world that looks down upon Apache Lipan Natives

“Awesome.” Ellie forked over the twenty and received a crinkled five and ten in change. Lincoln and Hamilton were certainly easier on the eyes than Indian Killer Jackson. Not that she was particularly thrilled to see any early presidents.
— Oh My Gosh I love Ellie so much. Let alone all these stories I haven‘t heard in years - like the wendigo, though it‘s up in the northeast not Texas - and other Native American lore I grew up loving

Just taking a moment to recognize Ellie‘s thought process of being a paleontologist. Got quite a kick out of that. I am really liking these characters so far. As well as how the raising the dead is a knowledgeable skill passed down to the eldest daughter of a family. Let alone that Ellie‘s grandmother of long ago was is legendary Six-Great

So I caved and picked up this story. Great book for this snow day. Murder and mystery are neither of my interested genres, but the wonder of an America grown with magic and fae folk is so grand. I love the idea of a different path the country could have been on, one where magic is still alive
What I‘m really looking forward to is the author. She herself is a member of the Lipan Apache Tribe Real culture writing! Always great to read that style
