Underground Library Society Post
A. L. Kaplan
I’ve been going back and forth on which book I would choose to become. Two of my favorite books growing up were Julie of the Wolves, by Jean Craighead George, and Island of the Blue Dolphins, by Scott O’Dell. Both are about young girls forced to survive on their own. They also both find themselves in their situations because of people not native to their homes.
Miyax, also called Julie, is a 13-year-old Eskimo girl. Forced to marry another teen, she runs away and finds herself lost in the Alaskan wilderness. Through observation and the knowledge learned from her father, learns how to join a wolf pack.
