“When 13-year-old Joe's world is shattered by a horrific crime perpetrated against his mother, he seeks to right the wrong.  Erdrich masterfully lets the reader experience this period in Joe's life through his eyes.  His world is drawn with sure strokes, and his family and their traditions and his friends and their exploits are convincing and real.  Erdrich offers a view of life on an Ojibwe reservation as alternately rich in culture and disheartening in its injustice, poverty, and disrespect.  Compelling and immediate, The Round House is a mesmerizing book.”-- Jenny Lyons, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT
