Residential Schools are so sad! I would cry so hard if I had to be taken away from my family to be brainwashed into a culture that is not mine! Really great book though; it captures the pain that these kids must have gone through..

I really enjoyed this book, which might be because I really like learning about Native Peoples. I hope you enjoyed this book as much as I did!
