Description

Vince lives in a small town—a town that is divided right down the middle by race. An unspoken rule has been there as long as Vince remembers and no one challenges it. But when Vince's friend Sherry starts dating an Indigenous boy, Vince is outraged—until he notices Raedawn, a girl from the reserve. Trying to balance his community's prejudices with his shifting alliances, Vince is forced to take a stand and see where his heart will lead him.

Editorial Reviews

“The author effectively writes scenes that leave the reader squirming for a positive resolution, and shine a light on intolerance and stereotypes. Kudos for addressing tough issues in an accessible manner.”

— Hip Librarian's Book Blog

"[Sylvia Olsen] knows what it is like to walk the line between white and [Indigenous] culture, and she is fair in her presentation of those on both sides of the line. Worth acquiring for any senior high school library collection. Recommended."

— CM Magazine
