This book was really good for the most part, but I am not going to sugar coat it. The ending sucks. The book is split into four parts with part one and two taking up the majority of the novel and parts three and four taking up a very tiny end part. For the majority of the book the characters were interesting as well as the plot, I liked the shift in perspective and the authors writing style, however its like the author gave up and had something better to do than finish the novel. The book is about a indigenous girl named Lisa and her life as well as her family. They are dealing with the loss of her brother, and the story of her teen years is told through a series of flashbacks. The story is really interesting from the point of view of a first nations girl showing many different stigmas that surround her community. There are many sad points in her life. This is all good until the end which offers no closure to the reader in terms of the plot, and what closure is received is cryptic and metaphoric.
