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.

Can a white girl feel at home on an Indian reservation?

Based on the author’s childhood experience in the early 1960s, this novel centers on Kitty, whose father is a government forester at Warm Springs Reservation, Oregon. Kitty is one of only two white kids in her class, and the Indian kids are keeping their distance. With time, Kitty becomes increasingly aware of the tensions and prejudices between Indians and whites, and of the past injustice and pain still very much alive on the reservation. Time also brings friendships and opportunities to make a difference. Map, author’s note, glossary, and pronunciation guide.

The author tells a poignant story with plenty of adventure and human drama as an Anglo girl nearing her teens tries to find friendship while living on a the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon State. The protagonist and the other children on the reservation find common ground as they work through the mundane--school projects and challenging teachers--as well as the extraordinary--forest fires exploding in their midst and facing down an abusive parent. I found myself completely caught up in this girl's quest to be a friend, to appreciate a different culture, and to muster personal courage to do the right thing.

This is one of the best books I've read in a long while (and I read a lot of middle grade and ya fiction). I read in one big gulp - telling myself "just one more chapter" then staying for the whole thing. Kitty is a great, believable character and the setting and time period details are beautifully handled. The story is simply told - not easy for a book that deals with so many powerful issues (abuse, racism, etc.) The realistic characters and plot will keep young people engaged, and the deeper themes of justice and friendship will spark great conversation. The story is a universal one (we all know a Kitty), and would be a great fit in any classroom or personal library.

Katherine shared a story that touched my heart. She titled her book well! The warmth and beauty of Warm Springs and the beautiful people of the tribes shows not only friendship but a lifelong connection. Kathy Quaempts Burke

This book would make a great movie. It is a fictional presentation based on the real life experiences of the author, whose family chose to live among the native americans of the Columbia River basin. As you read the book, you will experience love and life as experienced by the author during her childhood.

This is a wonderfully educational story both for what it reveals about Indian customs and the lessons it teaches about friendship and acceptance of differences. It is an enjoyable read that I couldn't put down.

Kitty is quite well traveled and so is her family. This book focuses on her move to the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon where Kitty and her family find a home among the Native tribe. Kitty finds making friends difficult and is increasingly alarmed and perturbed by the racism towards Native children by people outside of the Reservation. Kitty is determined not to let herself remain silent as she witnesses acts of cruelty that are alien to her nature and the antithesis of her beliefs.

This is a riveting roman a clef presented in a very sympathetic and compassionate tone. Kitty and her family arrive on the Reservation in 1962, during the New Frontier. This was the pre-Beatle era (Ringo became a Beatle in August of 1962); pre-protest era and the unofficial start of the then new decade. This was the era when a Ford Falcon was a Better Idea (Ford's slogan then); you could be sure if it's Westinghouse (Westinghouse Appliance's slogan) and a year after the Freedom Riders traveled via Greyhound to the Deep South to effect anti-Jim Crow changes. Cobwebs of 1950s trappings and cultural icons, e.g. musical figures, TV shows are swept away and replaced with more cutting edge social issues. The post WWII lull was largely over by 1961. In 1962, one year after Kennedy was sworn into office, the New Frontier saw some radical changes on the sociopolitical landscape. That was the year Robert Kennedy, then Attorney General sent federal marshalls down to Mississippi to force Jim Crow aside and allow James Meredith to enroll in Ole Miss. In effect, Kitty is aware of these things by her level of empathy. Kitty is living the life, so to speak as a non-Native who is ready to extend olive branches wherever possible.

I highly recommend this book and think it is an excellent gift idea. It is one of those books that stays with you for a lifetime.

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. But it's hard to fit in at the reservation school where she's one of the only non-Indians. She doesn't feel comfortable with the white girls dressed in their fancy dresses and stiff petticoats whom she meets at church on Sundays either. They dismiss all Indians as drunks, and their prejudice bothers Kitty deeply. Even her teacher tells her that none of the Indian students are going anywhere, and that "they will drag you down if you let them."

The story, narrated by Kitty herself, takes Kitty through her first year living on the reservation, a year of growth and change for this sympathetic character. As Kitty gets to know her classmates, she begins to appreciate them and their culture, as well as striving to understand the "dark shadows" in their lives, which are so much more complicated than her own happy two-parent family. She even becomes friends with Jewel, the powerful and angry girl who once intimidated her, and is faced with the difficulties of keeping Jewel's secrets. Should she speak out to help Jewel and her brother?

Something to Hold was recognized by Amazon as one of its best books for December for children. Although the book discusses sensitive subjects, particularly prejudice and an abusive father, these difficult topics are always handled in an age-appropriate way, and in the end the novel is an uplifting coming-of-age story with appealing characters and an unusual setting.
