Set in the 2000s on the fictional reserve of Nune’chi’win, 16-year-old Josh “Creeboy” navigates the world of Indigenous gang life. Josh’s family members are no strangers to gang life. His dad, the leader of one of the gangs on his reserve, is in jail, and his older brother Darion has taken his place. Josh is unsure whether gang life is for him ― that is until Darion is killed during a run-in with a rival gang. Angry, hurt and frustrated by systemic racism against Indigenous peoples, Josh, now known as “Creeboy,” starts down the path to becoming a full member. Can his family, and his community, save Josh before his fate becomes that of his father and brother?---from the publisher
