Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The book begins with Zane being fired from his job at the local zoo for an offense that he did not commit. He buys some liquor and breaks his 1.5 year sobriety and returns home. He shares his home with his mother and 14 year old sister. The next day he learns that their trailer has burnt down and his Mother is dead. He blacked out from drinking and has no memory of the night before. He is left to care for his 14 year old sister and quickly learns that he is a suspect in the fire that killed his Mother.
He gets a text informing him that his Mother is not who she claims to be. This is the catalyst for family secrets being revealed. Who was his Mother? Who was his father? The reader and Zane learn that his Cherokee father is alive and well. Why did his Mother lie to him? This is the premise of the book
I really enjoyed this book. It is a fast read and moves at a fast but believable pace. If I was not told that Zane was 26 year old in the beginning of the book, I would have thought he was 18 or 19. He had a young feel to him and the book felt more like a YA book to me.
I would have loved if the Author explored more about his dreams and the coyotes in the book. I think that would have been a nice touch.
This book is a mystery book but also reads like a YA book and also like a coming of age book of sorts. The book captured my attention from the get go. From page one, I was hooked. I wasn’t too surprised by the “reveal” at the end. That didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book.
