Not My Girl

This beautifully illustrated and carefully crafted story tells of the difficulty a young Inuit girl, Olemaun, has in returning to her home after two years away at residential school. Though it describes a troubling time in Canadian history, the book provides a starting point for discussion and opportunities for critical thinking and interpretation for all grade levels.
