(Review from the author)
it was amazing

I wrote this book in 1998. It was inspired by stories my husband told me about how his father, a full-blooded Cree, faced prejudice simply because he was Native Canadian. I also liked the idea of dark-skinned Indian-looking Nathan having a very blonde, very pale girlfriend. Times are different now, but I'm old enough to remember how the only Black student at my high school was treated by the adult generation after he began dating a blonde beauty in his class.
Trial by Fire is recommended by the Canadian Children's Book Centre, and was a finalist for the Arthur Ellis, Canada's major crime writing award.
