Fourteen year-old Allison from suburban California is in a bush-plane flying to visit her mom in a small village in Alaska--and the plane crashes with her as the sole survivor. Rescued by an indigenous hunter who luckily happens upon the crash, she lives and travels with Iñupiat Alaskans (commonly but improperly known as Eskimo), struggles with her withdrawal from her past life as a mall-rat, and gains extraordinary insights into the virtues and value of the indigenous culture.
I absolutely loved this book, and I am certain that most young adults would too.From the Inside Flap:
Fourteen-year-old Allison Atwood is traveling to visit her mother in Alaska when her plane crashes near the Arctic Circle. The pilot is killed and Allison is alone in a wilderness of ice and snow. Thankfully she's rescued by an I-upiat trapper who takes her to his village. Here she is the "ice worm," the outsider, far removed from her life in Southern California. But as time passes, the villagers change Allison's life, and she changes theirs as well.
