New York (AP) — Children's writer Angeline Boulley will soon bring many readers back into the world of her award-winning debut novel, The Firekeepers Daughter.
Henry Holt Books for Young Leaders announced on Friday that Borley's "Warrior Girl Unearthed" will be available in May 2023. She learns plans to make money from the theft of indigenous tombs. Holt calls the book "a complex and compelling mystery that makes it easy to explore themes of identity, family and landfill in the native community."
Her Borley book is explained by Michaela Gourd. His "We are the Guardians of Water" painting gave her the Caldecott Medal as an excellent illustration of her children's book.
Borley's first best-selling book, also featuring a young protagonist, was award-winning, Reese Witherspoon's book club, by Barak and Michelle Obama's Netflix production company. It has been adopted.
"I like talking about community-loving, culturally and linguistic Ojibwe teens," Bouleley said in her statement. "I hope the young people who protect and care for their elders and ancestors will inspire me and readers around the world."
