Hunting by stars / Cherie Dimaline.


French has been captured by the Recruiters, confined to one of the infamous residential schools, where the government extracts the marrow of Indigenous people in order to steal the ability to dream, and where the captured are programmed to betray others of their kind, something which he discovers has been done to his brother; meanwhile the other survivors, his found family, are hunting for him, determined to rescue him--and French has to decide just how much, and whom, he is willing to sacrifice to survive and be reunited with Rose and the others.
Years ago much of the world stopped dreaming-- but the Indigenous people of North America have retained their dreams, an ability rumored to be housed in the very marrow of their bones. French lost his family to these schools and has spent years heading north with a group of other dreamers. Now he has been captured. He knows immediately where he is-- and what it will take to escape. When his found family finds him, French must decide how far he is willing to go-- and how many loved ones is he willing to betray-- in order to survive. -- adapted from jacket, and from run-on sentence provided
