    1. It's so nice to read a book so close to home. This was great in so many ways. There were relationships that revolved logically, opinions that changed, and the Author did shy away from sensitive topics like residential schools. They aren't mentioned often, but she does talk about them and other tough subjects. I loved how every time the main character talked about Montreal I could picture it without the descriptions. I know what the Bell Center is, and where it is. That's a novelty right there.


    2. Reviewed by Sally Kruger aka "Readingjunky" for 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 h [...]


    3. Noah has recently moved from Montreal to George River, in Quebec's Far North, to spend a school term with his father in the isolated Inuit community. Living in a town of 700 people, with only one road, two stores, and no McDonald's is a pretty big adjustment, but there are certain things that still remind him of home--particularly Lenny, who reminds Noah of a bully back home. Beyond those basic things, though, Noah is learning about a whole new way of life--a way of life in which dogs are work a [...]


    4. 1. The Middle of Everywhere2. Monique Polak3. The book follows a 15 year old named Noah from Montreal. Noah moves up to the small town of George River in Nunavik to live with his dad for one school term. He soon realizes that George River is much different than is town in the city. Through many experiences, Noah learns to appreciate his father and the more simple way of life in the North.4. One motif in the book is restlessness."No, we Inuit never used to stay in one place too long." (29)The ent [...]


    5. I thought the book was overall a good read. There was one thing I didn't find too logical though. His dad's "restless soul" and the Inuit's tendency to not stay in one place make sense as to why his dad moved up north but the Inuit were forced to stay put so that, to me, was kind of a head scratcher. I'd say that Noah Thorpe (like most main characters) had the most sense of things around him. 'Noah is spending the school term in George River, way north in Quebec. The Inuit kids call Noah a Qallu [...]


    6. comparisons between Inuit and white culture, between life in a remote Inuit village and city life in Montreal.Noah travels north to George River to live with his Dad, Bill, who teachers senior English in the George River school. Life is very different from the one he knows living with his Mom in Montreal. He comes to appreciate the beauty of life in the north. More importantly, as he gets to know his father better and sees how much the students and people of the village like him, Noah begins to [...]


    7. Noah moves to George River in Northern Canada to live with his father for a winter from Quebec. He is suddenly in a very small Inuit village after living in a city. He hasn’t spent that much time with his dad since his parent’s divorce and he certainly hasn’t spent any time outside a city. He has a lot to learn about surviving in a northern climate and a lot to learn about Inuit life and Canadian history. This is an adventure story, complete with polar bears and sled dogs, mixed with a his [...]


    8. I read this with my Gr.6 class awhile ago. We did alot of projects on this, and well WE LOVED THIS BOOK! we laughed alot and not only is this book amazing we learnt soo much about North of Quebec.


    9. This book shows the different types of problems that different types of people have and how they can be overcame.


    10. A very straight forward YA book that shows a lot about the culture and issues of the Inuit of Northern Canada. Reasonably predictable plot, but interesting peek at the culture.



    11. A wonderful novel. Thoroughly enjoyed reading every page. I enjoyed learning a bit of Inuit lore. I also know, if I ever need to scare away a polar bearm for its paws.
