Margaret is home from residential school and is finding it hard to fit in with her family. Unable to speak her own language nor eat the traditional foods her mother has made for her, Margaret realizes that she has been more changed by her experience at residential school than she realized. Can she find a way to navigate her life with her family? Especially given what is coming.

Another painful memoir from Margaret Pokiak-Fenton that continues to explore the impact of residential schools on the children who attended them, their families and their greater communities. This is a must for anyone trying to understand this issues. Teachers and librarians need to pick this up.
