My Recommendation

Being in the US, I don't remember hearing about the murder of Tina Fontaine back in 2014, but it was a huge case in Canada that brought about more attention to the plight of missing and murdered indigenous women and children. This book was a fascinating account of Fontaine's life as well as the investigation into her death. Jolly did an immense amount of research but this book wasn't bogged down by facts and details. Instead, it gave a honest and heart-wrenching look at an issue that has gone underreported for decades. I was a little bummed that the book sort of gave away the result of Fontaine's case at the very beginning, it was still an interesting insight into a case that made a huge impact on a lot of people. Definitely a recommend for fans of this kind of nonfiction and true crime.
