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

5/5 Stars. The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline is a haunting speculative fiction following a group of survivors in a post apocalyptic type setting. In this book The end of the world is brought on by plague and global warming, and Native Americans are hunted down for their ability to still dream. This book follows a group of native survivors and grabs readers attention from the very first page. This book needs to be required reading in schools. TW: racism, genocide, residential schools, death of parents, mentioned SA, forced cutting of hair, genocide

This book is written from the point of view of a teenage boy who has been on the run for much of his life. In other reviews, I saw annoyance with the wiring style and expression used by the author, but it felt appropriate to the narrator.Ā 

I hope you give this book a chance. It's meaningful and heart wrenching, but hopeful. When we heal our land, we'll heal our people.Ā
