Praise for The ReSisters
"I read The ReSisters in one fascinated sitting, completely drawn into the story of a dystopian future already present in too many ways. Steele writes with a confident energy that is captivating—I could not put down the novel until I learned the fate of Sanna, an indigenous teenage girl whose life has been blown apart. She won my heart." --Susan Power, Author of Sacred Wilderness
"Cassie Premo Steele has written a stunner of a novel, one that speaks profoundly to (and of) our times, yet also carries a timeless wisdom—a wisdom that knows the power of art, the power of story, the power of love, yet also knows sometimes there are no easy answers. The ReSisters left me breathless and shaken and grateful." --Gayle Brandeis, Author of The Book of Dead Birds, winner of the Bellwether Prize for Fiction of Social Engagement
“Weaving alternate history with ancient history, The ReSisters forms a herstory that transcends time and shines a light on the shadows with which America currently wrestles. Both timely and timeless, the story will leave you questioning your version of the American Dream and the impact of your own choices within it.” --Laraine Herring, author of Writing Begins with the Breath
“A suspenseful novel that reflects contemporary American realities. With a cast of intersectional feminist characters, including lesbian and transgender characters, the book inspires readers to ask critical questions about what constitutes the right action in the face of injustice. How do we hold our pain as we work toward healing? As 15-year-old narrator, Sanna, says, ‘There’s somehow some kind of wholeness that can be recovered in the world when women work together.’” --Emily Withnall, contributor to The Kenyon Review
“After reading The ReSisters, I am still catching my breath. The book is haunting, harrowing, a statement. A warning, a blessing, a multi-faceted diamond enlightening us all.” --Barbara Straus Lodge, Founder of TruthTalks and Co-Editor of Janeland, a 2018 Lambda Literary Award Nominee
"The ReSisters offers a striking portrayal of a world that is both alarmingly possible and already here--a vision of a United States in which patriotism, nationalism, and xenophobia are valued above all else, and in which those who resist are targeted, detained, and endangered. At the same time, Steele offers us a glimmer of hope, revealing the many ways in which resistance can take root, heal, and grow. A chilling, moving, and all-too-possible story." --Alexis Stratton, author of the BLOOM chapbook "Fratricide" and the blog you are (queer) here
