9780375872211: Between Two Worlds

Inspired by a true story, Between Two Worlds is an impassioned coming-of-age novel set in a land of breathtaking beauty and danger, where nature and love are powerful and unpredictable forces.
 
On the treeless shores of Itta, Greenland, as far north as humans can settle, sixteen-year-old Inuit Billy Bah spots a ship far out among the icebergs on the baya sight both welcome and feared. Explorers have already left their indelible mark on her land and its people, and a ship full of white men can mean trouble. 

The ship carries provisions for Robert E. Peary, who is making an expedition to the North Pole. Peary and Billy Bah have a history—as a child, she spent a year in America with his family. When Peary’s ship gets caught in the ice, Billy Bah sets out on a harrowing quest to find him.
 
Billy Bah’s journey is one that will bring her to the very literal edge of the earth, imperil her life and question what it means to be between two worlds.
 
“Rich details . . . create a total immersion in Inuit life.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred  
 
“An intriguing viewpoint to a place and time rarely written about in young adult fiction.” —SLJ
 
“A compelling . . .  portrait of a community accustomed to life on the knife edge of survival, of extraordinary beauty and harsh realities. . . . A rare look at culture clash arising from polar exploration.” —Kirkus Reviews

About the Author :

KATHERINE KIRKPATRICK is the author of many books, including Trouble's Daughter and Keeping the Good Light. She lives in Seattle with her family.

From School Library Journal :

Gr 9 Up—Based on a true story, this gripping novel set in 1900 Greenland is narrated by a 16-year-old married Inuit woman. Billy Bah's life has been intertwined (rather tragically) with that of Arctic explorer Robert E. Peary since childhood, when she spent a year in America with his family. When Peary's wife and daughter arrive in her village on a supply ship, Billy Bah is one of the few who can translate and organize an expedition of native men and American sailors to find Peary, who has gone further north to the "Musk Ox Land." The journey proves harrowing as the ship becomes icebound for the winter and everyone is stranded for nine months in a remote Arctic outpost. As much a story of survival as it is a coming-of-age tale, the strength here lies in the fascinating details of daily native life (hunting, cooking, igloo building) and cultural customs (birth and death rites, marital and divorce practices). Billy Bah, an expert seamstress, is "traded" by her husband to a white sailor for supplies and unexpectedly finds herself falling in love with him, a conflict that proves pivotal to the story. While never explicitly graphic, themes of love, sex, and racism are for mature teen readers. Realistic and likable, Billy Bah provides an intriguing viewpoint to a place and time rarely written about in young adult fiction.—Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
