I had to read this alterrnate history novel. ( maybe distopian ). The Marrow Thieves takes place in a future Canada where climate change has distroyed cities, poisoned waters and made the population move to find a place without destruction. The people most affected are the Indigenous people-they can still dream. Scavengers hunt the Indigenous groups for their bone marrow. The marrow can help white populations recover dreaming. This story follow a young man named Frenchie who has lost his family and joins a group who are moving north. They are hunted, and eventually meet more Indigenous people and perhaps find a means of resistence that originates in their culture. The novel is well written and engrossing. Highly recommended.… (more)

This was an interesting story. I like that Cherie Dimaline incorporates Indigenous folk tales into the story.

This book is about dreaming and surviving and hoping. It's beautifully written, with devastating lows and, something I did not expect, highs that make your heart soar.

The thing I enjoy most about this series is the hope that permeates everything. No matter the despair, the family find hope for each other. There is a moment in this book when one of the most beautiful things occurs and it is during one of the worst times of their lives, and somehow Cherie Dimaline writes characters who can contain both. I highly recommend this series.
