Overview

Until the age of twelve, Georgia Lee Kay-Stern believed she was Jewish -- the story of her Cree birth family had been kept secret. Now she's living on her own and attending first year university, and with her adoptive parents on sabbatical in Costa Rica, the old questions are back. What does it mean to be Native? How could her life have been different?
As Winnipeg is threatened by the flood of the century, Georgia Lee's brutal murder sparks a tense cultural clash. Two families wish to claim her for burial. But Georgia Lee never figured out where she belonged, and now other people have to decide for her.
