Description

Victoria Secord, a fourteen-year-old Alaskan dogsled racer, loses her way on a routine outing with her dogs. With food gone and temperatures dropping, her survival and that of her dogs and the mysterious boy she meets in the woods is entirely up to her. The author Terry Lynn Johnson is a musher herself, and her crackling writing puts readers at the reins as Victoria and Chris experience setbacks, mistakes, and small triumphs in their wilderness adventure.show more

"A page-turner full of white-knuckle action. . . . Readers will be riveted until the end." --Publishers Weekly "[A] thoroughly engaging and incredibly suspenseful survival story. . . Well-crafted, moving and gripping." --Kirkus "Debut novelist Johnson links character to setting by showing how Vicky uses her knowledge of the land and copes with the elements, creates shelter, and snares animals in order to survive." --The Horn Book Magazine "The high-stakes adventure and episodic nature of the chapters will make this book an easy sell for reluctant readers." --School Library Journalshow more
