Live the Lie. Earn your Truth. For fans of Angie Thomas and Tommy Orange comes a ground-breaking YA thriller about a Native American teen who must root out the corruption in her community Eighteen-year-old Daunis’s mixed heritage has always made her feel like an outsider, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. When she witnesses a shocking murder, she reluctantly agrees to be part of a covert FBI operation into a series of drug-related deaths.  But the deceptions – and deaths – keep piling up and soon the threat strikes too close to home. Now Daunis must decide what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibwe woman) and how far she’ll go to protect her community, even if it tears apart the only world she’s ever known. Review ‘This fat, satisfying novel ably conveys a sense of place and nuanced, complex feeling; it’s both an interrogation of racist misogyny and a swift-paced, compelling thriller.’ -- Guardian ‘A superb book; a story that grips like a bulldog clip on your heart, a breathtaking, heart-winning thriller. I kept thinking about Daunis long after the final page.’  -- Katherine Rundell, author of The Good Thieves 'Raw and moving, the intricacies of family loyalty and who comes first are deftly and sensitively explored. Firekeeper's Daughter sensitively touches on crimes and lack of accountability against indigenous women in the Native American community and identity. Boulley has crafted a nuanced and refreshing protagonist.' -- Cosmopolitan  ‘Both thrilling and heartwrenching, with twists and turns I didn't see coming.’ -- Aisha Bushby, author of A Pocketful of Stars 'Firekeeper's Daughter is a gripping and unforgettable story of family, community and identity told through the eyes of a protagonist so powerfully realised on the page, you'll swear you can hear her heart beat. Daunis Fontaine is a force to be reckoned with – and so is Angeline Boulley. This is one bold, uncompromising and elegantly crafted debut.' -- Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie 'Intricate and moving. Boulley takes the reader on an incredible journey with the assurance of a veteran novelist.' -- Tochi Onyebuchi, author of Beasts Made of Night 'A rare and mesmerising work that blends the power of a vibrant tradition with the aches and energy of today’s America. This book will leave you breathless!' -- Francisco X. Stork, author of Marcelo in the Real World ‘Immersive and enthralling, Firekeeper’s Daughter plunges the reader into a community and a landscape enriched by a profound spiritual tradition. Full of huge characters and spellbinding scenes, it gives a fascinating insight into life on and off the reservation, with Daunis as a tough and resourceful heroine through every vicissitude.’ -- Financial Times 'What do you get when you combine Tommy Orange, Angie Thomas, and Tomi Adeyemi? This genre-bending new YA thriller.' ― Entertainment Weekly ‘One of this year's most buzzed about young adult novels.’ -- Good Morning America 'Beautifully crafted and filled with super sleuthing, Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley is one of our most anticipated reads of 2021.' -- Fierce Reads ‘Sharp turns and charming characters... Hitting hard when it comes to issues such as citizenship, language revitalization, and the corrosive presence of drugs on Native communities, this novel will long stand in the hearts of both Native and non-Native audiences.’ -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
