A review by annabelle_mackson
Borders, by Thomas King
A young boy and his mother are forced to remain between the Canadian and United States border when they refuse to state their citizenship as anything other than Blackfoot. His mother is steadfast in her fight for the border patrol to accept their indigenous tribe as proof of citizenship, and her son understands how important this moment is, though he grows tired of sleeping in their car each night. This was an excellent graphic novel and extremely important in today's re-evaluations of the rights of indigenous and first nations people in Canada and the United States.
