Overview

Marcus and his foster brother, Henry, a Navaho, have always been close. Marcus doesn't mind letting Henry lead the way; after all, he's brilliant, good-natured, and a champion runner. But now that they are sixteen and Henry is dating the amazing Celia, and now that he's showing interest in his Navaho heritage and his family on the reservation, Marcus is left behind. Henry is turning toward a world where Marcus will never belong. But like Henry, Marcus must discover his own strengths and passions, including his feeling for the extraordinary girl next door.

High school junior Marcus feels his entire world changing around him as Henry, the Navajo foster brother who has lived with him since the age of seven, starts to change his personality and wonder if he should return to his family's reservation in another state.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Marcus and Henry, his Navajo foster brother, find their paths diverging as they turn 16. Ages 12-up. (Feb.)
School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-- Henry Yazzie, a Navajo, came to live in Utah with the Jenkins family when he was seven. He and Marcus Jenkins grew up as foster brothers. Now they are high-school juniors--racing together (Henry is the better runner), dating, working together, with Marcus happily playing second fiddle and living in Henry's shadow. When another native American, a Hopi, comes to Wakara High School, he razzes Henry. ``Apple,'' he calls him, ``red on the outside, white inside.'' Disturbed, Henry withdraws from his white family and decides to return to the Navajo Nation and to his heritage, perhaps not to stay, but . . . The break with Marcus is difficult for both boys. The loving, supportive Jenkins family is fully developed, and the action is revealed through Marcus' first-person narrative. Cannon has written a read-it-again story on a not-everyday topic. She draws her characters with personal, sometimes humorous idiosyncrasies, embellished with apt teentalk and teenthink. --George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield

    The Shadow has fallen

    The book The Shadow Brothers is about two juniors in high school. One of them is a Navajo Indian. The characters are Henry (the Indian), Marcus, and Diana. Henry was only seven when he went to live with Marcus¿s family. He moved from an Indian reservation in Arizona to Lake View Utah. Henry was scared at first and had to go back, but he went to Utah months later. Henry and Marcus are friends and foster brothers for a long time, but then a girl gets in-between them. I didn¿t like the book because it didn¿t have a good ending. I also would have liked it better if it had been through Henry¿s point of view instead of Marcus¿s, that way the reader could feel Henry¿s loneliness.
