Description

‘Pilleurs de rêves’ Is the French version of ‘The Marrow Thieves’, which won the Governor General's award for Young People’s Literature in 2017 and Winner, 2017 Kirkus Prize Young Readers' Literature. Humanity has nearly destroyed its world through global warming, but now an even greater evil lurks. The Indigenous peoples of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream. In this dark world, Frenchie and his companions struggle to survive as they make their way up north to the old lands. For now, survival means staying hidden - but what they don't know is that one of them holds the secret to defeating the marrow thieves. Cherie Dimaline is a Metis author. Themes include coming of age sexuality, violence, two-spirit.
