Kara recommends "Warrior Girl Unearthed"


After listening to the audio version of Angeline Boulley’s first novel, “The Firekeeper’s Daughter,” I knew I also had to listen to “Warrior Girl Unearthed.”  It did not disappoint!

“Warrior Girl Unearthed” revisits Sugar Island, and many of the characters I met in “The Firekeeper’s Daughter,” but here we get to know the next generation of Firekeeper girls- Perry and her twin sister, Pauline.

From Amazon:

Perry Firekeeper-Birch has always known who she is - the laidback twin, the troublemaker, the best fisher on Sugar Island. Her aspirations won't ever take her far from home, and she wouldn't have it any other way. But as the rising number of missing Indigenous women starts circling closer to home, as her family becomes embroiled in a high-profile murder investigation, and as greedy grave robbers seek to profit off of what belongs to her Anishinaabe tribe, Perry begins to question everything.

In order to reclaim this inheritance for her people, Perry has no choice but to take matters into her own hands. She can only count on her friends and allies, including her overachieving twin and a charming new boy in town with unwavering morals. Old rivalries, sister secrets, and botched heists cannot - will not - stop her from uncovering the mystery before the ancestors and missing women are lost forever.

Sometimes, the truth shouldn't stay buried.


This book is best for teens and adults.
