BookMark: Racing the Sun by Paul Pitts (An Avon Camelot Book, 1988)

July 19, 2006

Grade school students looking for a good summer book will enjoy this story of an ordinary boy named Brandon. He lives in the suburbs and is proud to be a member of UGA (Underacheiving Goof-offs of America). Then Brandon's grandfather leaves the reservation and moves into into Brandon's poster-lined bedroom. It's a tale of a boy who at first denies, then comes to appreciate his Navaho heritage.
