review Son of a Trickster Trickster #1

Son of a Trickster Trickster #1 free read í 9 Ten wasted and wielding some kind of weapon Jared does smoke and drink too much and he does make the best cookies in town and his mom is a mess but he's also a kid who has an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people than twice his age and he can't rely on anyone for consistent love and support except for his flatulent pit bull Baby Killer he calls her Baby and now she's dead Jared can't count on his mom to stay sober and stick around to take care of him He can't re. To call this novel a coming of age story is a bit of a misdirection It has elements of that but there is a lot going on I m still a bit confused by this novel honestly Jared is a first nations kid in Canada who sometimes lives on the reservation He has very little parenting his grandmother claims he is not completely human and has some trickster in him and he starts experiencing a realm of the supernatural But then again he s also someone who sells pot cookies and drinks than he should so part of my skeptical brain wondered if these experiences weren t just the fallout of chemicals in the brain of a not fully formed teenager The people in his life who are most connected to this supernatural world of witches and spells and general animism seem to also be the most unreliable so that begs another uestionAt the same time Jared has to bear responsibility than he should have to He has to figure out how to keep the power on when his Mom takes off he ends up caring for an infant when his stepsister takes off he is rejected by part of his family So I found myself feeling very empathetic towards him Near the end he attends a meeting to attempt a journey toward sobriety and it is so ill received by his friends and family that it is obvious this is going to be a repeated struggleThe end of the book reveals where the alleged book 2 will go but I m not sure this book needs a seuel I read this when it was longlisted for the Tournament of Books and came up as probably a dark horse However I did know about it because of its place on the Giller Prize shortlist
