12-year-old Edie knows that her mother was Native American and that she was adopted by a white couple, but she knows nothing about her heritage. Then she and her friends discover a box in the attic full of letters and pictures from Edith Graham, a Suquamish and Duwamish aspiring actor from the 1970s — a woman who looks a lot like Edie. Edie feels like her parents have been lying to her, and as she struggles to learn more about her identity she also learns harsh truths about how Native Americans have been treated, including the misrepresentation of Native Americans in film and family separations. Hardcover. 2019. Day, Christine.
