    1 thought on “The Place at the Edge of the Earth”

    1. I liked the way the author paralleled the problems of the three main characters--Jonah, Jenny, and Arnold. All three were trapped in cycles of their own creation, born out of ignorance and inability to see a way out. The history of the fictional Indian boarding school was interesting and sad. The only thing I didn't like about the book was the fact that some of the dialog seemed too grown-up for 13-year-olds. Aside from that, I enjoyed this very much.

    2. Also on my blog, Luthien Reviews.More like 3.5/5Jonah Flying Cloud is a thirteen-year-old Lakota boy taken from his home, along with thousands of other Native children, and forced to attend a government-run boarding school intended to "civilize" them and assimilate them into white society. Lonely and homesick, he struggles to adapt to his new reality. He also finds himself haunted by the "spirit-ghost" of a white girl. This girl is Jenny Muldoon, who has moved onto the former campus of the Fort [...]

    3. I LOVE THIS BOOK. This was the first book I read where the story went back and forth between two different people. Even though this is a fiction story the things that happend to this Native American boy did happen. You feel for the characters; they seem real to you. It's a story of truth,love,life,death,and growing up. It's one of my tops favorites ever! It's a short read but it is a book you will never forget!
