The Everlasting Road is the second volume in Wab Kinew’s Floraverse young adult fantasy. The first volume is reviewed here.
Anishinaabe teen Bagonegiizhigok “Bugz” Holiday has vanquished her Clan:LESS rivals, but has not been able to restore her position (and income from said position) in the online Floraverse. Personal tragedy has distracted her: her brother has recently died of cancer.
Bugz has come up with a bold coping mechanism for grief. It is one a certain Doctor Frankenstein would recognize.
