The Wellpinit reservation is a rough place to grow up, but to Arnold, it's home. So he feels torn when he begins attending an affluent high school off the reservation. Things only get worse when Arnold's new basketball team returns to play the team from Wellpinit, and he must face his best friend and all his former teammates on the court. Could the crowd really be booing him? "I felt like one of those Indian scouts who led the U.S. Cavalry against other Indians." Illustrated with Arnold's cartoon drawings. Winner of the 2007 National Book Award and the 2008 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award.
