Warrior Girl, Unearthed - Audiobook Review
Title: Warrior Girl Unearthed Author: Angeline Boulley Publisher: Henry Holt @henryholtbooks Genre: Young Adult Thank you @macmillan.audio for the #gifted listening copy of Warrior Girl Unearthed. Narrator Isabella Star LaBlanc was absolutely incredible. She brought this story to life. Each and every character, but especially the main character Perry Firekeeper-Birch. I without a doubt recommend this book (more below) but I think the audio is really the way to go because it’s going to help with the pronunciation of the some of the cultural words and sayings in this book. It’s going to make you feel them.
Cultural. Heartbreaking. Mysterious. Greed. Hope.
Perry Firekeeper-Birch has the reputation as the laid-back trouble making twin on Sugar Island. She would rather be fishing or hanging out with her dog Elvis Jr. then doing almost anything else. Her sister is the one with big college aspirations and is doing Kinomaage internship program. Perry gets roped into program, when she hits a deer speeding and needs money for their jeep repairs.
Very quickly on in Perry’s assignment she becomes aware of missing Indigenous woman, murder investigations, and grave robbers seeking profit off what belongs to her Anishinaabe tribe. This labeled troublemaker is actually one pretty wise beyond her years bad-ass who has morals and beliefs well beyond most adults. She doesn’t back down from trouble is more like it.
“Warriors are willing to do what others can’t or won’t do for their community.”
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved Firekeeper’s Daughter and dare I say I loved this even more? This book felt more polished and complete. Despite the characters being juniors and seniors in high school this one doesn’t necessarily read like a typical YA. This is going to be a top read for me! Read it!
