Abstract:

Edie has always known that she is half Native American. She also knows that her mom was adopted by a white couple and has no connection to her birth family. So even though Edie is curious to learn about her heritage, she realizes her mom doesn't have any answers. That is, until the summer day when she and her friends discover a box hidden in the attic, full of old photos of a woman who looks just like Edie and letters signed "Love, Edith." Suddenly, Edie has a flurry of new quesions 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? In this poignant and powerful novel, debut author Christine Day tells the story of a girl grappling with her family's complicated story - and figuring out how to tell her own. --
