Perma Red by Debra Magpie Earling
In Debra Magpie Earling's debut novel, Perma Red, Louise White Elk is a 16-year old girl who lives on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Western Montana. She's attracted the attention of several men, a rich white man, an Indian man on the reservation who is a mean drunk, and a reservation police man. Louise must decide on the path of her future, on or off the reservation. She can try to pass into the world of white men and turn her back on her heritage, or she can choose to stay amid the poverty and violence of the reservation. Should she follow her heart or follow her legacy? Perma Red has gathered critical praise such as "a beautifully written novel" and "a stellar piece of literature."
