Harvey Chute’s first published novel, Stone and Silt, is a historical mystery set in British Columbia.

Sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales has a white father and a native mother, so she’s always been called a “half-breed.” But her family’s love is strong, and she has a best friend that’s Chinese, so she’s used to being on the outside. Until she ends up on the bad side of the Doyles, a family known for their violent natures.

When she finds a hidden cache of gold and then a body, her troubles only grow worse. Soon her father is a suspect and Elias Doyle is eager for revenge on whoever murdered his brother. Nikaia races to find clues to clear her father’s name, before something even worse can happen to her family.

Stone and Silt is an entertaining middle-grade novel about the power of family, friends, and love.
