When We Were Alone
Written by David A. Robertson and illustrated by Julie Flett
When a young girl helps tend her grandmother’s garden, she notices things that make her curious: Why does her grandmother have long, braided hair and beautifully colored clothing? Why does she speak another language? As the girl asks about these things, she is told about her grandmother’s life in a residential school a long time ago. When We Were Alone is a story about a difficult time in history and, ultimately, about empowerment and strength.
