Description

If I Go Missing is derived from excerpts of a letter that went viral and was also the basis of a documentary film. In her letter, Jonnie calls out the authorities for neglecting to immediately investigate missing Indigenous people and urges them to "not treat me as the Indigenous person I am proud to be" if she were to be reported missing.

A beautiful, haunting, and accurate account of a brave teenager who sought justice for her people. I will never forget this beautiful graphic novel with its equally gorgeous images.
