In her YA graphic novel, Visions of the Crow (Highwater Press $23.95), volume one in the series Dreams, Wanda John-Kehewin introduces us to Damon Quinn who is struggling to get through his senior high school year. Bullies cause Damon trouble; a new girl named Journey keeps digging into Damon’s personal business; and a mysterious crow begins following him. Home life isn’t any easier. His mom struggles with alcohol and is barely coping with day-to-day issues. After Damon is seized by a waking dream in the middle of a busy street, he confronts his mom with some hard questions: Why haven’t I met my dad? Where did we come from? Who am I? Help comes from new friends. Damon also travels through time and space to move forward in his life. Set to be released in April 2023, illustrations are by nicole marie burton. Wanda John-Kehewin is a Cree writer who uses her work to understand and respond to the near destruction of First Nations cultures, languages and traditions. 9781774920459
