"Shelf Awareness" starred review
The book is savvy and detailed about the Antarctic and life on the ice, with McMurdo s combination of industrial site and summer camp vividly conveyed Fans of McCaughrean s "The White Darkness "will definitely want a look; even determinedly frost-free readers, though, will sympathize with Harper s upheaval at failing to become one of the chosen few.
