Reader did wonderful job with the many characters ranging in age, education, and attitude, most with North Dakota accents. Marvelous story that takes you to the last sentence. Great insight to reservation life and the legal restraints of tribes to prosecute outsiders when they commit crimes on reservation lands. This story combines so many things: coming of age; Native American culture and story telling; crime; mystery; every day life on the reservation; teenage angst, love and friendship. Excellent novel -- suggest listening to it rather than reading since the narrator does such a phenomenal job with characters body of book.
