This 2-volume YA graphic novel explores the lives of Indigenous teens as they deal with friendship, family, grief, gender identity, colonialism, and high school. The graphic format works really well in this story as the spirits of ancestors appear in blue throughout the story, supporting the younger ones. Publishers Weekly says, "[A] haunting graphic novel... debut author Spillett and Donovan... present a story of girls growing up with the historical legacy of Canada’s treatment of Indigenous people, particularly women and girls." BIPOC author Tasha Spillett is of Cree and Trinidadian heritage.
