Courtesy of Teens Read TooBy TeensReadTooNoah is


headed to the edge of nowhere. He is going to spend some time with his father, who teaches at the Inuit school in George River located in northern Quebec. His mother thinks this will give him an opportunity to get to know the father he only hears from once a week by phone.Leaving his active life in Montreal to head into a snow-filled wilderness doesn't seem too thrilling. It doesn't take long for something to happen, though.On his first day in George River, Noah decides to brave the frigid temperatures and go for a run. He offers to take his father's dog along so the animal can get some much needed exercise. Just minutes into the run, a pickup truck races by and hits the dog, throwing the animal into the air. Noah watches in horror as the dog hits the ground and then lies in a pool of blood. With the help of one of his father's friends, they take the dog back to the apartment and are able to assess the damage. With care and rest, it appears the dog will survive.Noah's father insists that Noah get involved in the community as quickly as possible. He meets some of the locals at a storytelling event where he begins to see that fitting in will be a challenge. The Inuit people may be artful storytellers, but they are far from welcoming when it comes to the white man. Much of their history has been disrupted and damaged by the actions and interference of outsiders.Author Monique Polak was inspired to write THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE after traveling in northern Quebec. As she shares Noah's experiences, she is able to clearly describe the vast, snow-filled area that at first looks bleak and barren to Noah, but later becomes a place he is beginning to appreciate. This book has an interesting mix of people, problems, action and adventure, as well as self-discovery. Readers get a glimpse into a part of the world most never experience.Reviewed by: Sally Kruger, aka "Readingjunky" Noah Thorpe is spending the school term in George River, in Quebec's Far North, where his dad is an English teacher in the Inuit community. Noah's not too keen about living in the middle of nowhere, but getting away from Montreal has one big advantage: he gets a break from the bully at his old school. But Noah learns that problems have a way of following youno matter how far you travel. To the Inuit kids, Noah is a qallunaaqa southerner, someone ignorant of the customs of the North. Noah thinks the Inuit have a strange way of looking at the world, plus they eat raw meat and seal blubber. Most have never left George Rivera town that doesn't even have its own doctor, let alone a McDonald's. But Noah's views change when he goes winter camping and realizes he will have to learn a few lessons from his Inuit buddies if he wants to make it home.
