Introduction

From the 2011 National Book Award Finalist Debby Dahl Edwardson, My Name is Not Easy.

My name is not easy. My name is hard like ocean ice grinding the shore . . . Luke knows his Iñupiaq name is full of sounds white people can?t say. So he leaves it behind when he and his brothers are sent to boarding school hundreds of miles away from their Arctic village. At Sacred Heart School, students?Eskimo, Indian, White?line up on different sides of the cafeteria like there's some kind of war going on. Here, speaking Iñupiaq?or any native language?is forbidden. And Father Mullen, whose fury is like a force of nature, is ready to slap down those who disobey. Luke struggles to survive at Sacred Heart. But he's not the only one. There's smart-aleck Amiq, a daring leader? if he doesn?t self-destruct; Chickie, blond and freckled, a different kind of outsider; and small, quiet Junior, noticing everything and writing it all down. They each have their own story to tell. But once their separate stories come together, things at Sacred Heart School?and the wider world?will never be the same.
