Description

There's an invisible creature in the waves around Sarichef. It is altering the lives of the Iñupiat people who call the island home. A young girl and her family are forced to move to the center of the island for refuge from the rising sea level. Soon the entire village will have to relocate to the mainland. Heartbroken, the young girl and her grandfather worry: what else will be lost when they are forced to abandon their homes and their community? Addressing the topic of climate refugees, My Wounded Island is based on the challenges faced by the Iñupiat people who live on the small islands north of the Bering Strait near the Arctic Circle.

Review quote

"It's not an uplifting book&#8212nor should it be. There is the issue of where the people of the island will relocate to and who will pay for it&#8230The story also raises another important question&#8212if we humans have set many places on track for destruction, how will we, at the very least, remember them and their inhabitants?"--Montreal Review of Books
