Son of a Trickster by Eden RobinsonWith striking originality and precision, Eden Robinson, the Giller-shortlisted author of the classic Monkey Beach and winner of the Writers Trust Engel/Findley Award, blends humour with heartbreak in this compelling coming-of-age novel. Everyday teen existence meets indigenous beliefs, crazy family dynamics, and cannibalistic river otter . . . The exciting first novel in her trickster trilogy.
Everyone knows a guy like Jared: the burnout kid in high school who sells weed cookies and has a scary mom whos often 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 hes also a kid who has an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people more than twice his age, and he cant rely on anyone for consistent love and support, except for his flatulent pit bull, Baby Killer (he calls her Baby)--and now shes dead.
Jared cant count on his mom to stay sober and stick around to take care of him. He cant rely on his dad to pay the bills and support his new wife and step-daughter. Jared is only sixteen but feels like he is the one who must stabilize his familys life, even look out for his elderly neighbours. But he struggles to keep everything afloat...and sometimes he blacks out. And he puzzles over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him, why she says hes the son of a trickster, that he isnt human. Mind you, ravens speak to him--even when hes not stoned.
You think you know Jared, but you dont.
