The Foretelling of Georgie Spider (The Tribe, #3)The Foretelling of Georgie Spider by Ambelin Kwaymullina
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great end to this amazing series. This series has made such an important and positive impact on my life and my feeling of connection with the world around me. The characters are strong and brave and the story is heartbreaking and gut-wrenching while also being full of inspiration and hope. Ashala is a girl, a teenage girl but she is also everything. She holds this story together, connecting all of the pieces until everything is interwoven. She is the rock that holds Ember and Georgie together, who each are important in their own right, with their own stories and their own connections and Ashala is the strength of what people, and the earth can be. I cried a few times during this last story, grieving for people, animals and the land and the evil that was in full force reminded me so much of our current world, but I still finished with a sense of hopefulness.

“…this man. There were thousands like him, in my time. People who could wrap foul deeds in righteous words. Men and women who made it acceptable for others to give voice to their hate and their petty desire to hurt or humiliate or exclude.” pg. 413

“…..global interconnection of those who choose compassion over intolerance, courage over fear, and love over hate. Perhaps this could be the real world.” Author note
