Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-This memoir, mostly in verse, is read by the author and tells the story of his life growing up on the Tuscarora Reservation in New York in one of the only families with Onondagan ties. The book begins and weaves itself around the history of three of Gansworth's grandparents attending Indian Boarding Schools and the long-lasting effects generations later. The insight he shares into his life experiences is a necessary look into reservation life. The references to bands and other pop culture from the 1960s and 1970s may be more difficult for teens to connect to in the same way as older audiences. The title comes from the slur-Apple-meaning red on the outside and white on the inside, referring to Native Americans who have assimilated too much into white culture. This theme and various metaphors of apples also recur throughout the memoir. VERDICT Hearing the story told from the author himself provides a personal connection to the stories included. But, listeners may miss out on the visual elements Gansworth describes in the Author's Note-paintings he created that connect to each section of the book.-Courtney Pentland, Omaha, NEα(c) Copyright 2011.

"With language rich in metaphor, this is a timely and important work that begs for multiple readings." - BOOKLIST (starred review)

"Easily one of the best books to be published in 2020. The kind of book bound to save lives." - LIT HUB

"A searing yet dryly funny, at times intimate and at times highly literary picture of life hemmed in by majoritarian expectations and gutted by exploitation that made staying in the family home intolerable but leaving it unthinkable." - BCCB

"Exceptional..A stirring depiction of Indigenous life likely to evoke empathy from and resonate with all who venture into Gansworth's world." - SHELF-AWARENESS (starred review)

"A powerful narrative about identity and belonging." - PASTE MAGAZINE

"A raw, layered story about love and loss of community, culture, and place."- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
