"In a future world ravaged by global warming, people have lost the ability to dream, and the dreamlessness has led to widespread madness. The only people still able to dream are North America's indigenous population - and it is their marrow that holds the cure for the rest of the world. But getting the marrow - and dreams - means death for the unwilling donors. Driven to flight, a 15-year-old and his companions struggle for survival, attempt to reunite with loved ones, and take refuge from the "recruiters" who seek them out to bring them to the marrow-stealing 'factories.'"--

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.
