I found this book a severe disappointment. I found it incredibly unenjoyable. It was loaded with useless swearing and rudeness. The story is amazing, but could have been told much better. It tells of a small island school in Alaska. The Eskimo students are highly intelligent, but are ignored by other teachers. Their inner creativity comes out through their new teacher and by a writing competition/program called Future Problem Solvers (FPS). Against all odds they suceed at it through hard work. The story, though, was disheartening in the kids unwillingness to learn and the other teachers' lack of respect. As I said before, it was laoded with all the most revolting swear words. As an FPSer myself, it showed an old system of FPS, most of it not in use today. It did show a rich Eskimo culture, but I very well could have learned it somewhere else. Overall, I do NOT recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
