    Beautiful. A must-read.

    This gorgeous novella wrecked me. In absolutely beautiful, transporting, heartbreaking prose, Boyden tells the story of Chanie "Charlie" Wenjack's last few days, a real story that I'm ashamed to say I hadn't heard of before. (The fact that I hadn't heard the story demonstrates to me how "out of sight, out of mind" so many Canadians are in regards to the horrors we've inflicted on First Nations communities--shame, shame, shame.) It will take less than an hour to read this book, but you'll remember it for the rest of of your life. Read, learn, change. Hope.

    Wenjack

    A heartbreaking account of a tragic death of a residential school victim. Remembering Chanie Wenjack is only a small step in the long journey Canada must take in its promise of reconciliation.

    Beautifully written

    This was a beautiful piece art. A true work of passion in an eye-opening and thought provoking read. The different perspectives taken allows you to imagine Chanies pure isolation and to actually feel it deep in your bones. This will resonate with me for a long time.

    Beyond sad

    I loved the way this child's story has been told in this book. What this child and many, many more went through at the hands of fellow humans is discusting, thoroughly uncalled for and a paling. My inner most core of my being screams out in anger as I read more and more of the torture these innocent First Nations people's went through. Dear Change, in peace may you forever rest and my sincere apologies to your family and all others who suffered at the hands of ignorance.

    A fabulous tale

    The concept of having animals telling the story is extremely clever and fascinating Every Cansdian adult and child should read it,
