Lorna's adopted sister, Callie, is part of a mysterious group of non-lingual teens, Icelings, born on a remote Arctic island, who may not be entirely human. Now Callie wants to go home, in a YA novel that's perfect for fans of Under the Never Sky and The Darkest Minds. Seventeen-year-old Lorna loves her adoptive sister, Callie. But Callie can't say "I love you" back. In fact, Callie can't I say anything at all. Because Callie is an Iceling--one of hundreds of teens who were discovered sixteen years ago on a remote Arctic island, all of them lacking the ability to speak or understand any known human language. Mysterious and panicked events lead to the two sisters embarking on a journey to the north, and now Lorna starts ; to see that there's a lot more to Callie's origin story than she'd been led to believe. Little does she know what's in store, and that she's about to uncover the terrifying secret about who--and what--Callie really more

Review quote

"Astory that delivers action, conspiracy, and betrayal alongside a meditation on love, family connection, and humanity." Publishers Weekly "There s some classic and enjoyable sci-fi here that could be straight out of a 1950s film, with inexplicable natural activity and shady government actions that go farther than the protagonist realizes. Lorna is a witty but sincere narrator, and the heart of the book is her love for a sibling she doesn t understand; her devotion to Callie and her negotiation with Callie s role in her life are more powerfully depicted here than in many realistic novels about disabled or neurodivergent siblings."
