Now a mystical white eagle has invaded his dreams, making him question everything he thought he knew about Indians and friendship.

    Good Read, great for young readers!

    I was given this book in exchange for writing a review. This book is great for 4th-7th graders, depending on their reading levels. It has a lot of action and some suspense that keeps the reader wanting more. It also teaches valuable lessons on what true friendship is and how easily discrimination can turn into a hate crime. This story moved me because, although we read and hear about hate crimes, this is a fictionalized first-hand account of one and it really hits home.
