Melanie Bluelake's Dream by Betty Dorion (Coteau) looked like it would interest my eleven-year-old son. It's a small book so I didn't mind carrying it home, and of course, once on the bus, I pulled it out to take a look. I liked this story of a ten-year-old Cree girl who moves to the city with her mother. There are a couple of places where things get resolved a little too easily, but this is a kids' book, right? When I offered it to my son he was sceptical at first. He said he didn't think it looked that interesting and he didn't like the title. But I pushed a little and got him to give it a try. He's halfway through it and he says he likes it now and he doesn't want me to tell him the ending. He's going to suggest that his school library get a copy.
