Description

In her debut middle grade novel—inspired by her family's history—Christine Day tells the story of a girl who uncovers her family's secrets—and finds her own Native American identity.

All her life, Edie has known that her mom was adopted by a white couple. So, no matter how curious she might be about her Native American heritage, Edie is sure her family doesn't have any answers.

Until the day when she and her friends discover a box hidden in the attic—a box full of letters signed "Love, Edith," and photos of a woman who looks just like her.

Suddenly, Edie has a flurry of new questions about this woman who shares her name. Could she belong to the Native family that Edie never knew about? But if her mom and dad have kept this secret from her all her life, how can she trust them to tell her the truth now?

    Edie is the daughter of a white father and a Native American mother. Edie doesn’t know much about her heritage despite the curious questions people ask her. Her mother, adopted as a baby by a white family, doesn’t talk much about her childhood or culture either. In the attic, Edie and her friends discover photos of a woman who looks just like Edie. There are also letters, postcards and a notebook. Edie secretly goes through the letters and postcards without telling her parents, hoping to find answers about her little-known background. Unique #ownvoices story featuring a history that many kids will not be aware of, of native children being separated from culture and family.
