We Still Belong

Day, C.
Seventh-grade Wesley writes a poem sharing her pride in being Indigenous and expects it will be published at school. She also eagerly awaits the reply she will get when she asks her crush to a dance. But, her day does not go as planned, and the events bring to light other issues she faces, including family dynamics, Indigenous identity, financial hardships, and absent parents, but support from her family, friends, and community lifts her spirts and the day looks better. This relatable, engaging novel – covering one day – is suitable for read-aloud, independent reading, literature circles, and to spark discussion of friendship, family support, acceptance, recognition, belonging, and self-confidence.
