It has a happy ending, that being said it is incredibly triggering for trauma, torture, sexual violence

THIS. BOOK. I loved it. A not far-reaching dystopian YA novel that doesn't gloss over anything. Climate change has destroyed much of the land, settlers have lost the ability to dream, and Indigenous people are being hunted for their bone marrow - AND they're the only people who can fix the mess the world is in. It's a coming of age story at the same time for our main character, Frenchie, though we learn so much about other people too. This book packs a punch - check the trigger warnings and READ IT if you feel you're able. Wow.
