This was an excellent debut novel from Christine Day about friendship, family and the importance of learning your family roots. Day is able to craft a story that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming while bringing to light important and overlooked subject matter; specifically the treatment of Aboriginal people and the ramifications of the pain caused years later.

I can't wait to see what Christine writes next!

This book is fantastic. I loved Edee and my heart broke for her, her mother and grandmother. This book is necessary. No one talks about native children being adopted by white families and we need to.
