She grew up in New York the only child of musician parents, but when they die in a car accident coming back from a gig, she’s shipped off to live with her Aunt Janet in Georgia. The South is a strange new world to her, and she becomes the target of racist attacks from some of the other girls. Her Aunt Janet, an undercover FBI agent can’t move, but to keep Mary safe, she sends her to the Assiniboin reservation in Montana.

I loved this book, for many reasons. First off, it tells you how bad racisim can get in some states or countries. You never really know its that bad really, but this book opened my eyes on that. This E-book has Native American culture mixed in it, from the past to the present. I loved the way Wallace incorrurated that into her book. I loved learning about new cultures and how they came to be. I loved Steve, so it broke my heart to see what happens to him in the end. Overall I loved this book, it was amazing... Go read it!
