Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Returning to the Arctic after a two-year absence, twelve-year-old Jean-Paul has overcome his old fear of the dark, but discovers that his best Inuit friend, Chinook, is terrified of “spirit lights.”
One frigid night, after searching by dogsled for a crashed plane, Jean-Paul hears tinkling sounds in the area of a brilliant aurora. Chinook and the Inuit girl Kunee say the spirits in the lights are speaking, warning of danger. But Jean-Paul *knows* auroras can’t talk!
Or can they?
Fans of Gary Paulsen, Scott O’Dell, and Jack London will enjoy reading about Inuit culture and building igloos. They will experience fear and danger when they open a sleepy polar bear’s den with Jean-Paul and his Inuit friends, and will share a lonely, hazardous dogsled ride across the tundra and through the wilderness.
Two cultures meet in this coming-of-age novel for middle-grade readers ages 9 & up. Sequel to The Haunted Igloo, Spirit Lights is a *must read* before the exciting new young-adult novel, Drum Dance.
