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!

this book gave me an insight on early life of The First Nations People. After reading about how Violet is treated, it makes you think twice the next time you complain to your parents about the food on your plate…

I liked the book but it was very sad I even cried a bit. I think people that haven’t read this book should read it and people that have should read it again.

It’s shocking that Canada the “land of freedom” did that and it wasn’t even that long ago! That book was so interesting and a bit freaky! I mean I can’t belive she nearly suffocated somebody!

I find the stories of residential schools quite interesting. They are something that I think that everyone should know about. And every school was different, so every book on residential schools are different.
