Messenger 93 – PRE-ORDER NOW – COMING IN SPRING 2020!
by Barbara Radecki (Author)
“In seven days, she will fall,” say the crows. “As she falls, so do we all.” Who falls? wonders M. The ominous, supernatural message starts M on a quest that could save more than one life. But what if the person in danger happens to be her nemesis? Along the way, M meets up with Gray, a Cree boy with his own hopes of saving a runaway Indigenous girl. As they begin a wild journey through the city and into the bleak northern woods, M grasps for the true meaning behind the crows’ messages and pushes deeper and deeper into worlds she doesn’t know or understand, holding fast to a questionable dream that she might be a modern-day Joan of Arc.
“ Radecki’s masterful turns of suspense and mystery send M, and the rest of us, on a thrill ride from downtown to the deep woods. It’s a can’t-put-down, must read adventure!” ”
(Thom Vernon, award-winning author of “The Drifts”)
“This brave novel by Barbara Radecki tackles bold subjects — missing girls, celebrity culture, white privilege and cultural appropriation — as it explores one girl’s pilgrimage of self-discovery.”
(Diane Terrana, acclaimed author of “The World on Either Side”)
