Thanks to NetGalley and SparkPress for the arc of Blonde Eskimo by Kristen Hunt! A light colored Eskimo in modern times finds out about her ancestry and the power she holds. She also discovers the uniqueness of her power. The story would flow better if told through Neiva’s point of view instead of third person and sometimes alternating points of view. I enjoyed the journal entries which all are in first person and Neiva’s point of view.
Neiva moves to Alaska and lives with her grandmother. Her parents have left on a trip and want Neiva to finish high school in Alaska. She is not used to her surroundings and is also struggling with everything that happens on her seventeenth birthday and after! Strong characters, I especially like Nate and his personality, and the mythology make this an interesting read.
