I live in an area where there are Indian Reservations around. I never have thought much to how they live or interact with others. This book was an eye-opener to a culture I never knew or tried to understand. I loved the characters and the story they told. We need more books like this to become a more diverse community.

Although this is a story about a Native American teenager, it could be set just about anywhere the races exist in a tense atmosphere. Cal Burton is uprooted from a comfortable and tolerant existence in WA State, into a super-charged, racially intolerant town in Utah. Kids will love it. It's filled with teen angst, lots of action, and even a mystery. The ending is uplifting and very satisfying. It is fiction, and thus the author takes more than a few liberties with time line and geography, but those liberties are lost in the compelling story. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful?
