Eleven-year-old Julia has lived in the tiny northern community of Wekweètì since she was little. Although the community has always welcomed her, Julia still feels disconnected from the traditions and ancestral roots of the local culture. When she is invited on a canoe trip, Julia has no idea that the journey will change her life. Along the way she faces her fears, learns to survive in the wilderness and realizes the wisdom of traditional stories. Inspired by true events, this book will appeal to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous children for its relatable themes of family, loss, growing up and the struggle to connect with tradition and culture.
