FIVE STARRED REVIEWS FOR WARRIOR GIRL UNEARTHED!
#1 New York Times bestselling author of Firekeeper's Daughter Angeline Boulley takes us back to Sugar Island in this high-stakes thriller about the power of discovering your stolen history.

Perry Firekeeper-Birch has always known who she is - the laidback twin, the troublemaker, the best fisher on Sugar Island. Her aspirations won't ever take her far from home, and she wouldn't have it any other way. But as the rising number of missing Indigenous women starts circling closer to home, as her family becomes embroiled in a high-profile murder investigation, and as greedy grave robbers seek to profit off of what belongs to her Anishinaabe tribe, Perry begins to question everything.
In order to reclaim this inheritance for her people, Perry has no choice but to take matters into her own hands. She can only count on her friends and allies, including her overachieving twin and a charming new boy in town with unwavering morals. Old rivalries, sister secrets, and botched heists cannot - will not - stop her from uncovering the mystery before the ancestors and missing women are lost forever.
Sometimes, the truth shouldn't stay buried.

A chance encounter with human remains in a museum’s collection leads Perry on a powerful journey to reclaim her ancestors. This remarkable story offers insights into the challenges of repatriating cultural items and ancestral remains while following Perry’s personal struggle to understand the world around her. With loads of twists and turns, this thrilling novel will keep you on your toes. I highly recommend the audiobook! - Kendra ( )

Gr 9 Up—Set 10 years after Firekeeper's Daughter, this novel follows Perry Firekeeper-Birch during a summer
internship, where she discovers a local college is keeping remains and artifacts that belong to her tribe—and
decides what she'll do to get them back. It's important, thought-provoking, and captivating.

There's been a lot of well-deserved buzz from the first book in this series, and some more mixed reviews on this one. So I'll post my opinion :)

Compared to Firekeeper's Daughter, this story has fewer characters and less well developed characters in general. This story is set essentially in the next generation after the first book, and main characters from the first book are background characters in this one. This story has a similar kind of story pacing.

But on the plus side, a deep look at MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous) and at the problems of repatriation of remains and artifacts with a lot of references to NAGPRA (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act) legislation. It could be heavy-handed, but it's not - you learn about these realities through the eyes of a main character, and the story is central to the plot without being clunky.

I learned a lot - a sneaky amount, given that I follow some of those issues already - and it was all still wrapped up in a YA adventure-ish format.

Both are great as audiobooks, too. ( )
