Richard Van Camp "The Lesser Blessed" - 5/5

I really liked this book a lot. It's very short (about 120 pages), but it felt like the right length. It's the story of Larry, a Dogrib teen in the early '80s. Things are pretty shit for Larry himself and for pretty much everyone else in the town, but it never feels over-the-top. I love Larry's voice, and I especially liked the relationship between him and Jed, his mother's boyfriend and the only decent father figure he's ever had.
