"At seventeen, she is a rebel, a prostitute, a drug addict, a thief-- a Navajo who hates and is hated by the white world of New Mexico. Teague Summer, a young Indian Bureau doctor, is stabbed by Hatter the first time he sees her in a local jail. Yet he is drawn to this wild, fascinating girl and is told that unless he tries to help her, she will be sent to a cruel mental hospital. The story of Hatter Fox and Teague Summer is poignant, triumphant, and terribly sad--as they both are changed forever."--Page 4 of cover.

I have never come across a book quite like this one. Violence, anger, redemption, victory over adversity and tragic loss...if you can find it, it's a fantastic read. It is a rare love story about a strange native American juvenile delinquent and her social worker. I would recommend to all! Read full review
Review: Hatter FoxUser Review - Carol Ridings - Goodreads
Loved this book in school and just had to read it again. Very realistic tale of a doctor and the Indian girl he tries to help. She is a deeply disturbed person who is always in some type of juvenile detention. Read full review
