Iglu: A Young Adult Fiction Book on Climate Change
What happens when the rising sea envelopes Native Alaskan land and millions have relocated to the Last Frontier due to global warming? This is the setting of a fictional book written by Jacob Sackin for young adults.
Iglu is the story of native Inupiaq people who are mislabeled as terrorists for fighting for cultural survival.
But when the Iñupiaq people rise up to fight for the survival of their culture, the private army Skyhawk is brought in to subdue the growing insurgency and the Iñupiaq rebels are labeled as terrorists. Separated from her family in the aftermath of the ensuing battle, fourteen-year-old April Ipalook desperately searches for a place of refuge amidst the war zone of northern Alaska.
IGLU has a strong young female protagonist and will appeal to readers who enjoy science fiction and action stories.
I have not read the book cover to cover, and I will update this post after I have read the book in entirety.
