Hockey, love and death in Northern Michigan

This is a coming-of-age, action-packed mystery and a beautiful story about a woman finding the strengths in her community and herself.  Daunis Fontaine has never felt like she belonged, negotiating the worlds of her white mother's family and her Ojibwe father's family, but hockey gave her a place to belong. Everything changes the summer before college and nothing and no one is what they seem. Daunis's voice is strong and sure even when she's searching for answers and the Native American reader, Isabella Star LaBlanc, brings that grit and compassion to life. The story is filled with Ojibwe phrases and and LaBlanc's narration blends languages in an engaging and fast-paced story that will leave you thinking about Daunis and her world after the final sentence.
