What a debut from this young author.  An impactful punch of a book.  A young woman's social media posting leads to an intersectional exposing of the dangers of inequity, of nationalism, of the complexity of our modern workd and the sheer humanity of, well, humans!

Memorable characters whi are easy to love, despite the circumstances, the pressures and what, for m, was immersion in a world I know very little about- 1950's Chipewa Reservation life.  Simply loved this book and erdich's voice, as well as the seemless storytelling.
