Whilst I really enjoyed the book, the author did fall into some harmful tropes. The author used the experiences and stories of indigenous people to write his story
Spoilerfor example some of creatures and the folklore, but, also residential schools
, without treating those elements with the appropriate care- sounding, at times, rather callous
Spoilerfor example the fact that the government and adults are scared of the magical children. Which has been incredibly harmful in history for the populations which the author has based his story upon
