Taunted and humiliated by Raven, the unkind nun in charge of the young Inuit girls at her residential school, Margaret is willing to endure almost anything as long as she can learn to read. The unpleasant chores don’t daunt her,… but the teasing of other students and the unfair punishments do. When she is the only girl forced to wear ugly red stockings, however, Margaret has enough, and fights back. Followed by “A stranger at home” (DC41414). Grades 3-6. 2010.
