46. "The Healer" by Sharon Sala
Sala, Sharon. The Healer. Ontario: Mira, 2008.

I have to be honest. I didn't even finish this book. I read about half of it.
The plot was not terrible but not all that original either. Sala essentializes Native Americans as natural "healers" and switches between points of view rather confusingly. The narration is bland and unconvincing.
I just didn't feel it was worth finishing this drivel. I don't recommend it. I give it one star simply for its entertainment value. It was better than sitting in waiting rooms doing nothing.
