VOYAThe Canadian community in which Vince lives is divided into two parts: white and First Nation (Indian). The two groups do not mix, even on the ride to school each morning on the bus. This school year is starting out differently, though. Vince's childhood pal, Sherry, begins dating Steve, one of the First Nation students. And Vince notices that another native, Raedawn, is showing interest in him. With all of the previous animosity, how can any relationship between the two groups survive? Vince must find a way to bridge the divide. This fast moving, easy-to-read story does not delve deeply into the issue of racism, but it does let readers know that standing up for what one believes to be right is the correct thing to do.
