“There’s no books written by girls from the rez who are aware of how you can go missing, and are aware of family dysfunction, and overcome it in a way where we also have agency and sexuality and desire and humour,” said Mailhot, 35, in a phone interview from her home in West Lafayette, Ind.

I thought I had seen it all until I recently got my hands on a Dwarsligger, a cell phone-sized book format (also called a Flipback) that has been popular in Europe and especially in the Netherlands, where they were introduced about a decade ago. These books are printed horizontally and with a hinged cover, so they can easily be held in one hand. The thin paper prevents the books from feeling clunky. But until this month, American readers couldn’t readily get their hands on Flipbacks. Now, Penguin Young Readers is releasing the first Flipbacks in the U.S. with bestselling young adult author John Green.
