The Dogs of Balboa - Rose Christo

I applaud Rose Christo's stylized writing and even though they were young they were very interesting well-rounded characters. Big points for the portrayal of Native American characters. I bought The Dogs of Balboa years ago when I was all about YA books or books with young MCs. For me, that phase is over. So that's one of the reasons this wasn't a five-star for me.
