About the Book:
A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB YA PICK
An Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller
Soon to be adapted at Netflix for TV with President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground.
For readers of Angie Thomas and Tommy Orange, Angeline Boulley’s debut novel, Firekeeper’s Daughter, is a groundbreaking YA thriller about a Native teen who must root out the corruption in her community.
Eighteen-year-old Daunis Fontaine has never quite fit in, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. She dreams of a fresh start at college, but when family tragedy strikes, Daunis puts her future on hold to look after her fragile mother. The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother Levi’s hockey team.
Yet even as Daunis falls for Jamie, she senses the dashing hockey star is hiding something. Everything comes to light when Daunis witnesses a shocking murder, thrusting her into an FBI investigation of a lethal new drug.
Reluctantly, Daunis agrees to go undercover, drawing on her knowledge of chemistry and Ojibwe traditional medicine to track down the source. But the search for truth is more complicated than Daunis imagined, exposing secrets and old scars. At the same time, she grows concerned with an investigation that seems more focused on punishing the offenders than protecting the victims.
Now, as the deceptions―and deaths―keep growing, Daunis must learn what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibwe woman) and how far she’ll go for her community, even if it tears apart the only world she’s ever known.

This book club kit went above and beyond, really great resource from NetGalley/We Are Bookish!
The graphics, printable bookmarks, author interviews, content/trigger warnings at the beginning of the kit where they should be, books to read next (with cover art and synopsis), indigenous community resources. This book club kit is thoughtful, beautiful, and written by readers for readers! I was expecting a one or two pages of discussion questions, but this kit is everything you need to help foster and support a quality book discussion.
What a great kit! I am the moderator for my local book club and we are reading this book this year! I also moderate a lot of buddy reads on my different book clubs online. I utilize book club discussions quite often and love to see them in a book. This kit will be a great addition to our club discussion. The interview and background make this interesting for the reader. I plan to make the bookmarks for my group, maybe laminate them. I think the discussion questions used are thought provoking and will make for a great meeting. I want to add that the graphics in this kit and the book cover really add to the appeal of this book.
I am a huge fan of this book and am planning to use it for the teen book group at my library during the school year. This kit will definitely be helpful and I think the teens will really enjoy all the extra info!
I've said it before and I'll say it again : I absoluelty love these kits. I run a book group that is all about the intersectionality of gender, race, class etc where we read fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and plays that dabble in an assortment of genres for ages twelve and up. A kit like this makes it 10x easier to prep for my discussion that month with a sort of guideline for what sort of questions can be asked on top of the author interviews. I also really enjoy the handouts that these kits provide. The book marks and even book related lists are great for patrons wanting more from the book group.
