The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
This YA book had an interesting premise, similar to other books in the genre of our future being completely changed and different. This book has action, adventure, some romance, and stories.
“In a futuristic world ravaged by global warming, people have lost the ability to dream, and the dreamlessness has led to widespread madness. The only people still able to dream are North America’s Indigenous people, and it is their marrow that holds the cure for the rest of the world. But getting the marrow, and dreams, means death for the unwilling donors. Driven to flight, a fifteen-year-old and his companions struggle for survival, attempt to reunite with loved ones and take refuge from the “recruiters” who seek them out to bring them to the marrow-stealing “factories.” ” (Goodreads)
I loved how the characters join together and become a family, as they travel along, trying to survive and avoid being caught. This is a great YA book for anyone interested in Indigenous novels.
