Junior is a 14- year old First Nations boy who loves drawing cartoons. Junior lives and attends school on the Spokane First Nations reserve, but after encouragement from a teacher, he decides to go to an all-white high school off the reserve.

Told through the first person perspective and interspersed with cartoon drawings, this story is both hilarious and tragic as Junior encounters the realities of trying to fit in in his new school.
