Chris's life is complicated. At school, he's been selected to lead a project on sports teams with Indian names. At home, on the Penacook reservation, the Indians are divided about building a casino. It would destroy the beautiful island Chris thinks of
as his own. Is there anything one sixth-grade boy can do?
"Chris's compelling voyage of self-discovery is grounded in everyday events...allowing readers to see into the heart of this burgeoning chief."
"Readers who see injustice in their own lives will admire how much Chris accomplishes with a simple message of respect."
