    Hm. Well. I can't say that this was well done on any level. The Indian Residential School System in Canada is something I think is incredibly important to learn about, especially as a Canadian, but this is not the ideal place to get that knowledge. This book gives one the impression in its title that it will cover many of the horrific things done to Canada's indigenous peoples, but it is basically just the residential schools, with everything else serving as little more than a footnote.

The book is a bit too short for the information it needs to convey, even despite being for middle grade and young adult readers. The author (neither indigenous nor Canadian) goes out of his way to remind the audience of commonly spread misinformation about Columbus (without bothering to correct it), and remind the audience that the Inuit were once referred to as "Eskimos" without letting his young audience know that it is now considered a slur. He shares two different dates as the year the last school closed. This book is missing vital information, and what is there often feels a bit icky. If you're interested in learning about the residential schools, there are faaaaar better overviews than this one(even for this age group), and you can rarely go wrong with a memoir (even for this age group).
