By: Cherie Dimaline
Call #: YA Fiction Dimal.C
Frenchie is on the run. Frenchie is one of the few Indigenous people of North America left and he is being hunted. Civilization has been devastated by war, climate change and disease. All but the Indigenous people have lost their ability to dream and because of that people have been slowly losing their minds. People are desperate to find a cure and have turned to rounding up Indigenous people; testing them, torturing them and collecting their marrow in hope of a cure. Frenchie and his small crew are heading north hoping to escape the recruiters, but with desperate people at every turn death is always lurking around the corner.
