Everyone knows a guy like Jared: the burnout kid in high school who sells weed cookies and has a scary mom who's often wasted and wielding some kind of weapon. Jared does smoke and drink too much, and he does make the best cookies in town, and his mom is a mess, but he's also a kid who has an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people more than twice his age, and he can't rely on anyone for consistent love and support, except for his flatulent pit bull, Baby Killer (he calls her Baby)--and now she's dead. Jared can't count on his mom to stay sober and stick around to take care of him. He can't rely on his dad to pay the bills and support his new wife and step-daughter. Jared is only sixteen but feels like he is the one who must stabilize his family's life, even look out for his elderly neighbours. But he struggles to keep everything afloat ... and sometimes he blacks out. And he puzzles over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him, why she says he's the son of a trickster, that he isn't human. Mind you, ravens speak to him--even when he's not stoned. You think you know Jared, but you don't.… (mer)

I'm so glad this is going to be a trilogy. Can't wait for the next installment. ( )

I heard Eden Robinson on the radio talking about her newly-released sequel (or prequel) to this book, so I thought I’d pick it up. This is almost like a kind of urban fantasy—Canadian style. Jared is 16 and parties hard in his northern BC town. His mother parties even harder and runs alarmingly, explosively hot and cold. Jared has had supernatural encounters since childhood but doesn’t have the vocabulary to articulate or understand them, so he chalks them up to hangovers and bad drug trips. The first part of this book is filled with partying, family drama, and a budding love affair—all the things you’d expect from a novel about a teenage kid. But when the supernatural invades to the point where other humans (or what Jared always believed were humans—need to intervene, the story gets really weird. But this is an entirely human story, showing that even people who have the spirits in their sights can fall off the rails. I look forward to reading more of this series. ( )

I'm in British Columbia for a work conference so I'll write a review when I'm back in Ontario at my desk, but I loved this book a lot. ( )

An interesting book, first in a trilogy, that is nothing like what you expect. Or at least nothing like what I expected, going in. The characters are interesting, and surprisingly complex as you find out more about them. I was expecting a fantasy plot, but fantasy only really figures into the last third of the book or so. I think the hardest thing to adapt to in the book was the way the author, Eden Robinson, addresses time - or rather, does not address time. It can be difficult to tell how much time has passed between chapters, or when something is a sudden flashback or time jump. I struggled with that for about three chapters, and then I caught on to the way Robinson is writing. Beyond that, the book grabs you quite well, and despite it being completely unlike what I thought it was going to be, it was a fantastic and refreshing read. Very excited to read the rest of the trilogy. ( )

When they start putting trigger warnings on books, this one will need several. There's a lot of raw unpleasantness here and honestly, for the first third of the book I felt like the author was trying to prove how "hard" she was. By the time I was finished, I appreciated the not nice-ness as necessary to the story and really got into the characters. But its prose is very sparse and I would have liked more in some places where this "less is more" philosophy seems to hamper my understanding of what's happening between the characters. Also, I would have liked more talking crows.

A big fat thank you to whatever publisher it was who sent me this free copy for review. ( )
