Cherie Dimaline recommends
The Berry Pickers (2023)
Amanda Peters
"With every sense engaged, and in a lyrical tribute to her father's stories, Amanda Peters manages to take you home to the east coast in the very best ways - through family love and personal grief and the precious accounting of minutes and memories. You cannot help but love these characters from the first chapter, they stay with you long after the last page."
And Then She Fell (2023)
Alicia Elliott
"Familiar and ethereal. Brutal and beautiful. And Then She Fell is the fulfilment of the promise of Alicia Elliott's storytelling prowess. . . . What an accomplishment. What a gift."
Bad Cree (2023)
Jessica Johns
"Both tactile and dreamy, terrifying and beautiful, Bad Cree will wrap you up and pull you along for the journey - once it starts, there's no backing out, no pause, no stall. I have been waiting years for Jessica Johns's books - I say books because there had better be more! She did not disappoint."
Crosshairs (2020)
Catherine Hernandez
"Catherine Hernandez is groundbreaking. Her talent is remarkable. I dare you not to cry or scream or marvel or, like me, do all at once while reading this book. This story is a masterpiece of voice and metaphor, image and embodiment. But it is also a perfectly crafted portrait of us now, of us then, of the us we hope to be. I love this book, this big, bright missive that not only breaks the ground, but that gifts us with the steps to take in order to get to the other side, together."
