Beneath the Ice by Eva Colmers
David is thrilled to join his Mom on her research trip to the Inuit community of Kangiqsujuaq. But things are not the way he pictured it: no internet, no more polar bears in sight, and he is left behind with a strange Elder and her granddaughter Paasa.
When he watches Paasa collect fresh mussels from beneath the ice, David sees a chance to have his own splendid scientific adventure. Ignoring local safety rule and traditional custom, David sneaks out and climbs below the frozen ocean ice - ALONE.
But as Sea Goddes, Sedna, tells us in the old Inuit myth: there is a right time and a right way to do things in the harsh Arctic
