"In a future 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 population - 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 15-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.'"--… (mere)

I had to read this for a class and didn't expect to fall in love with it like I did. It made me cry and laugh and fully solidified its spot as the book I'll probably go back to re-read from that courses book list.

Frenchie and all the characters (avoiding names due to spoilers) all felt so real and complex. You understand why they act the way they do, and it makes the emotional moments all the more hard-hitting. ( )

I had to read this alterrnate history novel. ( maybe distopian ). The Marrow Thieves takes place in a future Canada where climate change has distroyed cities, poisoned waters and made the population move to find a place without destruction. The people most affected are the Indigenous people-they can still dream. Scavengers hunt the Indigenous groups for their bone marrow. The marrow can help white populations recover dreaming. This story follow a young man named Frenchie who has lost his family and joins a group who are moving north. They are hunted, and eventually meet more Indigenous people and perhaps find a means of resistence that originates in their culture. The novel is well written and engrossing. Highly recommended. ( )

This book is about dreaming and surviving and hoping. It's beautifully written, with devastating lows and, something I did not expect, highs that make your heart soar. ( )

I flew through this story. The premise is, yeah, a tad hard to suspend disbelief for, but not if you just go with the embedded metaphor. Too many people have tipped the Earth into disequilibrium: earthquakes, storms, disease, etc. but ALSO white people (and presumably pure blood Chinese, Africans and etc) no longer dream and descend into madness. The only 'cure' is using something found in the marrow of native americans, even half or quarter breed, and so the harvesting begins. The story focuses around a teen, Francis, Frenchie, who is on his own but does find a group to travel north with. North is where, hopefully, they can survive, stop the madness. Frenchie is a great character and so are the people in the group he lands in. Great story. Five stars for the couldn't put down factor.***** ( )

Indigenous legend meets a terrifyingly plausible post-apocalyptic world. The story unfolds onto itself, bringing you deeper into the lives of the characters, both their current setting and their past. This has made my personal Top 3 indigenous books list; I loved it! ( )
