Bone Dance by Martha Brooks

When her father wills her a cabin on land in rural Manitoba, Alexandra meets a young man who shares her Indian heritage and her experience of being haunted by spirits. - SBCL

Two teenage Native Americans meet when one inherits the land where the other played as a child. Issues of parental failure, including alcoholism and methods of coping as a young person passes from childhood to adulthood, are treated accurately and in a lively manner. The narrative alternates between the viewpoints of the boy and the girl. - CDE
