Whiteout by James Houston

Book Description

Jonathan Arid, a rebellious 17-year-old city boy, is sent to live with his uncle at a remote Arctic settlement on Baffin Island, a World away from his passion: leading and playing in a small jazz group. Angry at his mother and relatives, he must come to terms with new ways - and with the harsh reality of an environment where one small mistake can mean certain death.
