In a village on the distant colony of Kiruna, the outcast Aino has worked hard to created a life for herself. The fragile status quo is upset when the offworlder Petr arrives and insists on becoming a part of her life. But he has no idea what it will cost him, and has cost Aino, to belong to the people who sing with inhuman voices, in Sing by Karin Tidbeck.
"Characters from science fiction, fantasy, and folklore rebel against being colonized, observed, categorized. They speak for themselves, refusing when others (especially colonizers) want to speak for them. Perhaps one of the strongest examples of this is Karen Tidbeck’s 'Sing.'"--Locus
