I seem to be reading a lot of young-adult books these days. This one is about a 12-year-old boy who discovers his Native American heritage. I connected to his character (though I am not a runner), and enjoyed learning some things about the Native Americans.

I would say that in the beginning the author wasn't very clear about where this was taking place, although we can assume it was in New Mexico. That kind of threw me, although I knew it was the Southwest.

I enjoyed this coming-of-age story.

A very engaging & interesting story about a boy discovering his heritage. I like the imagery and the "magic" that pulls him to run.
