Shy high school junior Riley Kowalski is spending her winter break on a research trip to Antarctica, sponsored by one of the world's biggest tech companies. She joins five student volunteers, a company-approved chaperone, and an impartial scientist to prove that environmental plastic pollution has reached all the way to Antarctica, but what they find is something much worse... something that looks human.

Riley has anxiety - ostracised by the kids at school because of panic attacks - so when she starts to feel like something's wrong with their expedition leader, Greta, she writes it off. But when Greta snaps and tries to kill Riley, she can't chalk it up to an overactive imagination anymore. Worse, after watching Greta disintegrate, only to find another student with the same affliction, she realises they haven't been infected, they've been infiltrated - by something that can change its shape. And if the group isn't careful, that something could quickly replace any of them.

Review quote

"This edge-of-your-seat, action-packed story is perfect for teens looking for a scary winter read. [...] Highly recommended for horror fans."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"An homage to John Carpenter's The Thing, [...] Ames' second novel is delightfully gruesome and truly scary. A must-read for horror fans."

"The unforgiving setting is automatically fascinating, and the monster is a good, gory, bone-cracking invention [...] fans of horror will find a lot to enjoy."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Readers looking for a full-on creature feature won't be disappointed [...] [T]he dynamic cast and their complex relationships propel this frightful adventure toward a bloody conclusion."
--Publishers Weekly


"Eerie, unsettling, and absolutely captivating, It Looks Like Us hooked me on the first page and never let me go. Ames has crafted a chilling eco horror novel that will keep you reading late into the night, engrossed by its shape-shifting horrors."
--Erica Waters, author of The River Has Teeth

"Ames has truly hit her stride in this bone-chilling story of isolation, resilience, and the monstrous nature of man. Be sure to lock your doors, because this book is as creeping and deadly as the Antarctic cold, and just as unforgiving."
--Courtney Gould, author of The Dead and the Dark
