Ezra Cloud hates living in Northeast Minneapolis—he hates being away from the rez at Nigigoonsiminikaaning First Nation, and he hates the local bully in his neighborhood, Matt Schroeder, who terrorizes Ezra and his friend Nora George. When Matt’s house burns down after a fight, Ezra instantly becomes a prime suspect. Knowing he won’t get a fair deal, and knowing his innocence, his family sends him away to run traplines with his grandfather in a remote part of Canada, while the investigation is ongoing. But the Schroeders are looking for him…
