Fifteen-year-old Willo was out hunting when the trucks came and took his family away. Left alone in the snow, Willo becomes determined to find and rescue his family, and he knows just who to talk with to learn where they are. He plans to head across the mountains and make Farmer Geraint tell him where his family has gone.

But on the way across the mountain, he finds Mary, a refugee from the city, whose father is lost and who is starving to death. The smart thing to do would be to leave her alone — he doesn’t have enough supplies for two or the time to take care of a girl — but Willo just can’t do it. However, with the world trapped in an ice age, the odds of them surviving on their own are not good. And even if he does manage to keep Mary safe, what about finding his family?


Now that sounds like a possible, scary future! I actually got a copy of this from the publisher just last week and can’t wait to dive into it. :)

    This sounds great. I wonder if it’s more in the style of a classic adventure novel or a dystopia. What do you think?

      Probably dystopia, almost like a survival story…it makes me think of The Donner Party, weirdly enough…which fascinated me in middle school.  I just hope there’s no cannibalism in this book. O.o lol

    Great pick!
    The blurb sounds scary and fascinating at the same time. I’m really getting into dystopian novels as well, so thanks for this one. New book on the massive TBR pile ;)
