I really liked this story,especially the fact that every part follows one of the 5 siblings of a traumatized Ojibway family. I learned a lot about life on 'the rez' and how First Nations people see white people - I'm glad this came from an Aboriginal author, instead of a white author speaking for them. The writing style is not sophisticated; this book could be read easily by people who are less literate, which is not necessarily a bad thing, as I think Canadians from all backgrounds should know more about First Nations people's experience.

Should be categorized as Young Adult. Terrible writing.

I first heard about this lovely writer from a CBC podcast, "The Next Chapter." I was intrigued to read this book and I was not disappointed. The writer takes you into this family and allows one to feel the complicated processes of living in such an unfriendly world. It is not a desolate story, but one of spirit and hope.
