I read this book courtesy of Terry Lynn Johnson and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. It reminded me a bit of Call of the Wild, one of my favorite books.
It begins with fourteen-year old Victoria, a self-reliant girl who has recently lost her father who taught her everything she knew. But when a routine trek with her dogs (and what a crew; I LOVED the dogs!) collides with a snowstorm and an injured boy from "away," well, let's just say things get interesting from there, and then, just when I thought they were safe, wham! They weren't. I really liked this book and think it would appeal to almost anyone who likes a good adventure in the freezing cold of Alaska...brrr.
