I was really into the plot almost 3/4 of the way through then the ending was a bit confusing. I'm still contemplating the idea that I was supposed to get more out of it that I did. Maybe I'm just not a deep thinker?

The majority of this book was quite good. However, the ending left much to be desired. The last 70 pages or so I couldn't put down, but then the final 2-3 chapters were completely anti-climactic for me. Sad really, because the story had me totally consumed at that point. I was ready for a fantastic finish, and instead I'm left feeling totally incomplete. The plot just came to a screeching halt and the book ended. That was it. UGH!

I like Blaine Yorgason books. This one takes place in 1904. It has a judging others consept in the book. Everyone thinks the "Hurryups" family are Indians because they are different. No one really knows them except for one person and the rest of the town won't believe him that they aren't Indians. It's a quick read and very enjoyable.

I read an uncorrected proof of this when I worked for a book store in high school. I don't remember much about the story but I remember enjoying it enough to read the entire thing one night while I was at work.
