Amazing book, and equally amazing artwork~
Wish I could track down who made it, so I could credit them.
(For serious, though. A lot of fanart and even official artwork - including every version of the book covers - portray Miyax/Julie as an older teenager/young-adult-looking woman, instead of the thirteen-year-old that she is.
Her age, and an accurate representation of that age, seems to be an important factor to me, given the ummm…circumstances that drive her into the Arctic tundra, in the first place - which should add to the shock, if nothing else. Anyway, I’m pleased that there is at least one proper portrayal of a hardly-even teenaged young girl to be found, anywhere; unfortunately, though, it’s the only one I can find.)
Anyway, I’m currently storming through this fucking amazing book, again, after having not done so in almost a decade, now.
As exotic and award-winning as this is, I’m surprised it hasn’t been adapted into a film, yet.
can I just stop for a minute to talk about what an awesome movie this would be
the plot is essentially 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL ESCAPES ABUSIVE ARRANGED MARRIAGE AND SURVIVES ON HER OWN IN THE ARCTIC WILDERNESS WITH ONLY THE AID OF A FEW SIMPLE TOOLS AND A WOLF PACK SHE MANAGES TO BEFRIEND
I want that to be a thing
