    This book has a lot going on. Set during WWII in Prince Rupert, BC, it tells the story of Jed and Tadashi, a native and a Japanese boy. The story weaves through Jed accepting his native heritage, to dealing with racism, to respecting nature, to the Japanese internment...yet it works. It's a bit predictable at times, but since it's a book suitable for young readers that's not such a bad thing. I enjoyed this book. It has good characters, an interesting setting, and a good plot, especially with the historical aspects.

    Pretty good. You learn things, and realize others while reading through. This is another book that entices me to check more things out, to want to investigate other questions brought on by incidents mentioned in the book. Also allows one to see things from different perspectives other than your own while reading.If reading were required for 5th - 7th grade, this would be a great choice to discuss in school. Might affect bullying; might cause more children to accept differences more, better, easier.
