Who am I?
Why did Bradley love this book?
I read this book because I loved Fire Keeper’s Daughter. Boulley’s writing is gripping. Her characters are fully realized, and her fast-moving plots are unpredictable.
I have a middle-grade novel in production that is about my great-grandfather (Dakota/Ojibwe ancestry, born and raised in the Minnesota territory). While writing the book, I read every middle-grade and YA novel I could find by native writers.
This YA novel told a great story and told it well. It was good to catch up with the characters from Fire Keeper’s Daughter and learn more about the protagonist, Perry—a great character with a strongly rendered personality.
