"In one of the few young adult books about growing up Native American today, teenagers from the Mohawk, Anishnabe (Ojibway), Quinault, Shinnecock, Cherokee, and Pueblo peoples speak candidly about family, school, community, dating, religion, sports, work, etc. Many are honor students, and their voices are upbeat, although almost all tell of some family and friends with drug and alcohol problems. Teens everywhere will recognize the conflict in living between two cultures: the struggle to stay close to your roots but also to be part of the mainstream. We need more contemporary books like this."-Booklist, March 1996

About the Author:

Karen Gravelle is a freelance writer and photographer who has written many books based on interviews with teenagers, including Teenagers Face to Face with Bereavement, Teenagers Face to Face with Cancer, Teenage Fathers and Where Are My Birth Parents?.

From Booklist:

Gr. 7^-12. In one of the few YA books about growing up Native American today, teenagers from the Mohawk, Anishnabe, Quinault, Shinnecock, Cherokee, and Pueblo peoples speak about themselves. Gravelle interviewed and photographed 17 young people on Indian reservations across the country. They speak candidly in many voices about family, school, community, dating, religion, sports, work, etc. One thing they all hate is the enduring Hollywood stereotype that shows them as all the same and all in the past. Many are honor students, and their voices are upbeat, though almost all tell of some family and friends with drug and alcohol problems. Teens everywhere will recognize the conflict in living between two cultures: the struggle to stay close to your roots but also be part of the mainstream. Home can be safe and boring. Some of the teens have lived off the reservation at one time or another, but the experiences of urban Indians are hardly represented here; still, one book can't do it all. We need more contemporary books like this to go with the historical fiction and the shelves of great folklore. Hazel Rochman
