On the cusp of adulthood, Meeka is about to confront a clash of lifestyles and cultures as she leaves her community in Canada's Far North and begins her education in the South.

The author's interest in Inuit culture shines through as he examines the experiences of Nunavut's young people in their transition to adulthood in.
