Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Against the stark and haunting landscape of Canada's Far North, fifteen-year-old Trista chronicles the events of her life from her room in the Polar Girls' Prison. Caught in the decline of sexual abuse, drunkenness, and failed motherhood, Trista tries to make sense of her past. No other novel has ever told of the lives lived amidst the clash of cultures in this remote region."--Publisher.
