The sequel to Fatty Legs, this powerful memoir chronicles an Inuvialuit girl searching for her true self when she returns from residential school. When 10-year-old Margaret Pokiak is finally reunited with her family in the Arctic, her mother barely recognizes her, screaming, "Not my girl." Margaret realizes she is now marked as an outsider. She has forgotten the language and stories of her people, and she can't even stomach the food her mother prepares. However, Margaret gradually relearns her language and her family's way of living. Along the way, she discovers how important it is to remain true to the ways of her people - and to herself. Highlighted by archival photos and striking artwork, this first-person account of a young girl's struggle to find her place will inspire young readers to ask what it means to belong.
