“In seven days, she will fall,” say the crows. “As she falls, so do we all.” The ominous message starts M on a quest, but what if the person in danger happens to be her nemesis? M meets Gray, a Cree boy with his own hopes of saving a runaway Indigenous girl. As they begin a wild journey through the city and into the bleak northern woods, M grasps for the true meaning behind the crows’ messages and pushes deeper into worlds she doesn’t know or understand, holding fast to a questionable dream that she might be a modern-day Joan of Arc.

The Miramichi Reader
“Radecki tackles difficult subject matter with grace, and asks tough questions for her readers to reflect upon.”
