My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A poignant coming-of-age story flavored with the rich and often painful history of the Native American struggle in the United States. When I was in college I had the opportunity to work closely with some amazing Native Americans whose stories were loosely echoed here - stories of poverty and injustice over shared fry bread. I felt just as deeply for the characters in this story as I did for my friends in real life, and it was an appropriate book to begin reading on V-Day.
There were a few slow parts that left me slightly bored, but overall it was a beautiful and soulful story.
