Quick summary: Sym is a 14 year old girl who has a unique companion in the form of Titus Oates (the dead Antarctic explorer). He becomes an invaluable comfort to her when she finds herself stranded in Antarctica with her mentally unstable uncle.
I loved this book! There’s adventure, suspense, and I learned a lot of new things about the harsh terrain of Antarctica and the people who first explored it (to find out more about these explorers check out: Emperors of the Ice).
~Tricia is CPL’s teen librarian and loves reading about places she’s never been before. If you could travel anywhere (in or out of a book) where would it be?
