Probably Ruby by Lisa Bird-Wilson

Probably Ruby is a novel by Lisa Bird-Wilson. (CBC Books, Doubleday Canada)

In Probably Ruby, Ruby is placed in a foster home shortly after birth. She is finally adopted by Alice and Mel, a less-than-desirable couple who can't afford to complain too much about Ruby's Indigenous roots. After her new parents' marriage falls apart, Ruby ends up in vulnerable and compromising situations — self-destructing on alcohol, drugs and bad relationships — that lead her to search for her Indigenous identity in the unlikeliest of places.
