Description

Vince lives in a small town—a town that is divided right down the middle. Indians on one side, Whites on the other. The unspoken rule has been there as long as Vince remembers and no one challenges it. But when Vince's friend Sherry starts seeing an Indian boy, Vince is outraged and determined to fight back—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

"[Sylvia Olsen] knows what it is like to walk the line between white and Indian 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

“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
