Talk, reading, Q&A

Daunis, daughter of a white mother and an indigenous father, is constantly searching for a sense of belonging, both on her tribe’s reservation and in her hometown. After a tragic blow, the FBI makes her an unexpected offer. In stirring language, this thriller explores the multi-layered life of a teenager caught between two identities and provides complex insights into the community of an indigenous tribe. The debut novel is currently being filmed for Netflix.

Angeline Boulley will give this year’s opening speech for the section »International Children’s and Young Adult Literature«.
