Congratulations to Cherie Dimaline for winning the Canadian Governor General’s Literary Award and the U.S. Kirkus Prize! "A dystopian world that is all too real and that has much to say about our own." (Kirkus Reviews—starred review 2017-09-19)

A totally original, insightful and sensitive apocalyptic novel from a uniquely indigenous perspective by a Metis author. Even if you're sick of end-of-the-world books, read this one. There's nothing else like it.
