Amazon Editorial Review

Chris Nicola's life is complicated. He lives on the Penacook Indian Reservation and goes to school in town. At school, things are going great--he's been selected to lead a group project on using Indian names for sporting teams. But it's another story at home. The Penacook are divided over whether or not to build a casino on a beautiful island Chris things 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." -Publishers Weekly

"Readers who see injustice in their own lives will admire how much Chris accomplishes with a simple message of respect." -Booklist
