"Knutsson's narrative is ambitious, twining together Pacific Northwest mythology, standard post-apocalyptic tropes and a coming-of-age story inflected with romance. Readers of Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian will recognize the harsh realities portrayed, albeit within the science-fictional framework. Knutsson’s language is often atmospherically beautiful.... an absorbing read populated by characters hardly ever found in teen novels."--Kirkus Reviews
Catherine Knuttson lives on Vancouver Island, on which the fictional Island of her novel is based. She divides her time among teaching, singing, and writing. Like her narrator, she is a member of the Metis nation. Shadows Cast by Stars is her debut novel.See all Editorial Reviews
