McKenzie Jones is always looking for a place that she can call her own and just be accepted the way she is. To escape the daily rigors of chores and school-especially with all of its homework and stress of fitting in to a place where she was the only one that looked like she did; "Tall, red-brown skin, with dark brown hair and brown eyes." McKenzie often went to a place in her head called the "Place of Peace." Her "Place of Peace" was a place where she could be herself and feel that people would accept her. Little did she know that this place maybe a reality not just a fantasy that she has created. McKenzie embarks upon a journey of self-discover after being asked by her teacher to do a presentation in front of the class on what it is like to be a Wampanoag (Native American). To her dismay, McKenzie does not really know too much about the culture of her ancestors or about how that relates to what she goes through in 2009. In the end McKenzie learns her final lesson as she has become a young woman, learned the truth of her history, received her name, and learned the wisdom of sacrifice and sharing, her final lesson is to live in peace and abundance where ever she may be.
