My rating:



Jordy Threebears has been through eleven foster homes in eight years—and now he has to move again, to live with a grandfather he hardly knows—a grandfather who had been in jail for murder. Jordy is full of resentment and anger, and it takes him a long time to let go of that. But the gift of a wild horse helps him with this.

But there is a man who hates Jordy. And when Jordy discovers what drove his grandfather to kill—a bunch of white guys beat and killed his daughter, Jordy's mother, just because she was Indian—he is filled with rage and hatred, and has to learn how to move past it.

A powerful, moving, deep book that feels emotionally true. Very well written, this book is not one you'll put down.
