Girl Gone Missing
A Cash Blackbear MysteryBook
Her name is Renee Blackbear, but what most people call the 19-year-old Ojibwe woman is Cash. She lived all her life in Fargo, sister city to Minnesotá™s Moorhead, just downriver from the Cities. She has one friend, the sheriff Wheaton. He pulled her from her motheŕ™s wrecked car when she was three. Since then, Cash navigated through foster homes, and at 13 was working farms, driving truck. Wheaton wants her to take hold of her life, signs her up for college. She gets an education there at Moorhead State all right: sees that people talk a lot but mostly about nothing, not like the men in the fields shé™s known all her life who hold the rich topsoil in their hands, talk fertilizer and weather and prices on the Grain Exchange. In between classes and hauling beets, drinking beer and shooting pool, a man who claims hé™s her brother shows up, and she begins to dream the Cities and blonde Scandinavian girls calling for help.
