This book is based on the challenges faced by the IÃ±upiat people who live on the small islands north of the Bering Strait near the Arctic Circle. There's an invisible creature in the waves around Sarichef. It is altering the lives of the IÃ±upiat people who call the island home. A young girl and her family are forced to move to the center of the island for refuge from the rising sea level. Soon the entire village will have to relocate to the mainland. Heartbroken, the young girl and her grandfather worry: what else will be lost when they are forced to abandon their homes and their community?
