The Oscar Season has begun and one of the movies getting buzz this year is the WW II holocaust drama, Sarah’s Key. . This is another story about Nazi’s killing Jews but what makes it unique is that it is told through the eyes of a young Jewish girl, depicting what happened in a more compelling way than what the usual historical and journalistic accounts are capable of presenting.

Blue Saltwater was written with the same goal in mind; to relate the truth about the trauma experienced by countless aboriginal kids within the Indian Residential School System through the eyes of one teenage boy, Blue Saltwater, taking readers on an emotional journey which enhances their ourstanding of what really happened. A movie based upon this book will someday inform an even broader audience. .
