Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Jacaranda Books Art Music Ltd
In this stunning post-apocalyptic novel, the indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, as the marrow is the key for the rest of the population to recover the ability to dream. Hunted and on the run, Frenchie races to reclaim his heritage and find his family.
Humanity has nearly destroyed its world through global warming, but now an even greater evil lurks. The indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream. In this dark world, Frenchie and his companions struggle to survive as they make their way up north to the old lands. For now, survival means staying hidden-but what they don’t know is that one of them holds the secret to defeating the marrow thieves.”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
