Racial tensions run high in a small town.

Rob Maclean and his mom have moved to a small community in northern Ontario in order to be closer to Rob's imprisoned brother, Adam. One night after a rowdy party, Rob and some friends end up in a van speeding through a First Nations reserve. The driver of the van has a deep hatred for Indigenous people, and he lobs rotten fruit at a group of young men gathered in front of a community center. The young men chase them down, and Rob's friend Alan is injured and ends up in a coma. Now the police are pressuring Rob to identify their prime suspect.

This is the second story featuring Rob and Adam Maclean after Coming Clean.

Jeff Ross is the author of several novels for young adults. He teaches scriptwriting and English at Algonquin College in Ottawa.

"Up North is a very good novel that leaves readers thinking about their own views on such things and acknowledging the importance of acceptance and of being good people. Recommended." - CM Magazine
