Loved it! Like I usually am I wasn't sure at first about the book but I enjoyed it a lot. It made me happy, sad and angry. So far this is one of my favourites.

I thought it was very interesting and kind of Ironic considering I had Histroy and we were talking about the same things. As part Aboriginal myself I found it easy to relate to Tony. Moving around a lot made it easy for me to connect with Ellen. I knew what they were both going through and it would definitley be my summer reading book. I loved everyminute of it whenever I was on my breaks at work I would always pull it out and read. I couldn't get enough of it!

A small town in the 1960s is not the easiest place for a girl who wants to be a doctor, and falling in love with an Indian boy who lives on the local reserve complicates things further.
