It is what it is

Should this book be given special consideration because it helps express some underrepresented voices? Perhaps, it does. And certainly the underlying theme that runs throughout the book is one that should be shared and exposed, particularly as it pertains to native women. But two dimensional characters and cliched gender relationships are dime a dozen in these kinds of stories, and unfortunately, this one does not rise above. Some of the prose is a bit overwrought in an attempt to be extravagantly descriptive, but it fell flat for me. Which is sad, because I tried this book because it was different than my usual fare...(and despite the garish cover art, as if Thomas Kinkade were born Shoshone).

All in all, it's just okay, not terrible, but nothing special either.
