Gr 7 Up—When a mother and son refuse to renounce their Blackfoot nationality while attempting a road trip across
the Canadian-U.S. border, they find themselves recognized as citizens of nowhere. King and Donovan's goldenhued story of Indigenous endurance is a simple yet powerful reminder of the impact of colonial history.

This was more of a 2.5 as it started as a 3 then went downhill a bit for me. I'm not sure why I didn't love it, there was nothing wrong with it, I just couldn't connect with it or really understand it.

Short stories about Natives and the storytelling culture. Each chapter begins with the same basic story (minor details changed) which conveys the idea that you are following the narrator through several speaking engagements with different audiences. It also conveys the message that people are predictable in their responses to stories. I didn't look much closer than that at the meaning or themes to the book, but it would be interesting to really contemplate them with a group of readers.
Thomas King is a great storyteller and I always enjoy his books.… (més)
