10-year-old Margaret Pokiak can hardly contain her excitement - it's been two years since her parents delivered her to the school run by the dark-cloaked nuns and brothers. But Margaret soon realizes that she's an outsider in the Arctic -… she's forgotten the language and stories of her people, and she can't even stomach the food her mother prepares. As she struggles to reclaim her way of life, she discovers how important it is to remain true to the ways of her people - and to herself. Sequel to "Fatty legs". Grades 4-7. 2011.
