Alix Hawley recommends
Son of a Trickster (2017)
(Trickster, book 1)
Eden Robinson
"Eden Robinson is more than funny, more than intelligent, more than a novelist - she’s an enchanter. Son of a Trickster creates a terrifically believable teenage character who lives both on the rez and in a witchy soup of blood, sex and magic. Harry Potter goes to reform school. Full of sparks, full of pain, full of joy."
