I'll be the first to admit that this book is totally not the genre I normally read. I'm all about the sci-fi and fantasy, but Terry Lynn Johnson is my online friend, and I could not resist picking this book up the very day it came in the mail!
What did I think?
I adored it! From the fun interaction between the main characters to the struggle for live and death in the harsh winter of Alaska, I couldn't put ICE DOGS down. I was immersed in the world of dog-sledding and I didn't want to leave. Well written, well-edited, and beautifully put together, ICE DOGS is a wonderful, edge-of-your-seat action adventure story perfect for middle grade and young adult audiences, boys and girls alike. Highly recommended!
