Something to Hold Hardcover – December 6, 2011. In this new novel, debut author Katherine Schlick Noe tells a fresh and compelling story, based on her own childhood experiences of growing up on an Indian reservation as one of the only white families in the community. When our eleven-year old heroine, Kitty, arrives at the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon in 1962, she's used to being the new kid-her dad works for the government as a forest manager and they're always moving around.

Katherine Schlick Noe's Something to Hold is a rare find in the children's literature scene. With one caveat (discussed below), I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in a realistic portrayal of American Indians, their life, culture, and land, as well as issues of racism, courage, and the forging of unlikely friendships. I found Noe's book extremely moving (I admit to tearing up at the end), and also completely believable.
