Shadow Brothersby A.E. E. Cannon
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.

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.
