Wow, this is a top-notch book from a unique Canadian writer! Jared is an indigenous teen who sells weed cookies, has a scary, very foul-mouthed mom, parties too hard and is just trying to get through high school. He also has a kind heart and a quick wit. In another writer’s hands, Jared and the other characters would be stereotypes. In Robinson’s totally authentic prose, humour and heartbreak mesh to bring us an unforgettable novel. And that’s before Trickster, talking fireflies and murderous river otters get involved.
