Walking in Two Worlds

Indigenous teenager Bugz walks between two worlds – the real world where she is self-conscious and worries about her appearance, and the online world where she is a superstar in the Floravese video game universe as she battles against Clan:LESS, a team of misogynistic boys. When one of her gaming rivals leaves China and moves to Bugz’ reservation to live with his aunt, as her romantic feelings for him grow her dominance in the Floravese begins to wane. This engaging, timely Canadian novel can be used as a read-aloud novel, literature circle selection, or for independent reading, and can launch discussion of both Indigenous and online culture.
