cheesepuppy's review against another edition

This story is literal cultural appropriation. It wasn’t the author’s story to tell. It’s like he was making light of an awful thing that was done to so many people.

This story and the author are a mess. The author is a white man and he made a cutesy story that he said is based on the 60s scoop. If you don’t know what that is, it was a horribly traumatic thing done to indigenous families. Look it up for more detail.

Here’s a bit more info too: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdm7tLAt/
