A groundbreaking YA thriller about a Native teen, caught between worlds, who goes undercover to root out the crime and corruption threatening her community.
Eighteen-year-old Daunis Fontaine wants to leave home to discover who she really is. As a biracial science geek and hockey star, she’s always felt like an outsider, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. But when her family is struck by tragedy, Daunis puts her dreams on hold to care for her fragile mother. The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother’s hockey team.
Then Daunis witnesses a shocking murder, thrusting her into the heart of an ongoing FBI investigation. As an undercover informant, Daunis works tirelessly to expose the criminals. But as the secrets pile up and the deception strikes close to home, Daunis must learn what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibwe woman).
