There’s nothing more refreshing than reading about winter during the dog days of summer. Ice Dogs is about dogs, dogsledding and the incredible bond between humans and dogs that only grows deeper during dangerous adventures.
Fourteen-year-old Victoria Secord lives for racing her dogs in the wilds of Alaska, especially since her father died. When her mom doesn’t understand her need to get stronger lead dogs, Victoria goes out on her own, only to find a city boy with a crashed snowmobile. By rescuing him, Victoria ends up in the midst of a blizzard, struggling for survival and forced to use every outdoor skill her father has taught her, and a few he didn’t. Each dog has a distinctive personality and lend a big paw to the exciting ending.
Terry Lynn Johnson‘s second novel is a winter adventure not to be missed.
