About this product
- DescriptionInspired by a true story, Between Two Worlds is an impassioned coming-of-age vel set in a land of breathtaking beauty and danger, where nature and love are powerful and unpredictable forces. On the treeless shores of Itta, Greenland, as far rth as humans can settle, sixteen-year-old Inuit Billy Bah spots a ship far out among the icebergs on the bay--a sight both welcome and feared. Explorers have already left their indelible mark on her land and its people, and a ship full of white men can mean trouble. The ship carries provisions for Robert E. Peary, who is making an expedition to the North Pole. Peary and Billy Bah have a history--as a child, she spent a year in America with his family. When Peary's ship gets caught in the ice, Billy Bah sets out on a harrowing quest to find him. Billy Bah's journey is one that will bring her to the very literal edge of the earth, imperil her life and question what it means to be between two worlds. Rich details . . . create a total immersion in Inuit life. --Publishers Weekly, Starred An intriguing viewpoint to a place and time rarely written about in young adult fiction. --SLJ A compelling . . . portrait of a community accustomed to life on the knife edge of survival, of extraordinary beauty and harsh realities. . . . A rare look at culture clash arising from polar exploration. --Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.
