The Middle of Everywhere by Monique Polak

An interesting story set in the Far North of Quebec on the George River. Noah Thorpe is spending a semester with his father, who teaches at the local school, and living with the Inuit. TMOE was inspired by author Polak's visit to the region, and it shows in her detailed description of life in George River. The easy reading level paired with high school student issues makes this a perfect match for a reluctant or struggling older reader. Grade 8+
