"The writing is painful yet beautiful, bleak but ultimately
hopeful. In this era of reconciliation, Cherie Dimaline's The
Marrow Thieves is a work of speculative fiction that resonates
and stays with the reader long past the last page."--Sunburst Award
for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic Jury
"Dimaline's story resonates with me. It will resonate with other Native readers, too…This story is one I'm carrying. It is about caring, about love, about how people can continue, and will continue…I highly recommend The Marrow Thieves."--Debbie Reese, American Indians in Children's Literature
