Happier Than Ever
Walking in Two Worlds
By Wab Kinew
Wab Kinew’s 2022 Walking in Two Worlds is a near-future science fiction novel.
Recurring pandemics have forced North American society to embrace hitherto unknown or unpopular ways to cope with disruption. However, some fundamentals of North American1 life remain unchanged. There are still sequestered territories, Rez, for Indigenous people. Teens living on them are required to attend school, and school is for many teens an exercise in awkward discomfort.
Luckily for Anishinaabe teen Bagonegiizhigok “Bugz” Holiday, she has another life, in the Floraverse.
