Fourteen year-old Allison from suburban California is in a bush-plane flying to visit her mom in a small village in Alaska--and the plane crashes with her as the sole survivor. Rescued by an indigenous hunter who luckily happens upon the crash, she lives and travels with Iñupiat Alaskans (commonly but improperly known as Eskimo), struggles with her withdrawal from her past life as a mall-rat, and gains extraordinary insights into the virtues and value of the indigenous culture.
I absolutely loved this book, and I am certain that most young adults would too. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Allison, a 14 year old girl, tries to go to Alaska to see her mom. On the way a lot happens. Her pilot dies when their plane crashes. She is stranded until an Indian rescues her and takes her to his village where she learns to survive.
In the village she meets a boy named Matu. He is 13 years olds and she convinces him to take her to the coast. So they saddle the dogs up and head out.
When they make a stop at another village, Allison meets a girl named Oolik who can't hear or speak. She meets a woman name Siki who has a baby. When disaster falls upon the village, Oolik and Allison wake everyone up to help. To find out what happens next you must read the book.
I really liked this book because, Allison realizes that you don't need personal items like nail polish and all that to survive. Oolik and Siki's village teaches her the true meaning of life.
