NOTE: Although I’m not reviewing this on Fiction Friday, it is a work of fiction.
Jake’s mother has finally decided they need to spend more time together. He whole-heartedly agrees, but doesn’t like that this means moving off the reservation, being the only Native in a fancy school, and giving up lacrosse. Is there any way to make his new classmates understand the true spirit of the game?
Well, it had to happen eventually that I would read a book I didn’t love! So far all the books I’ve reviewed for my #100indigenousbooks project have been great, I must really have been picking them!
To be fair, this is a sports novel, and I dislike most sporting fiction. I felt about the same as I would about a Matt Christopher sport novel, which is pretty similar to this book.
