The first book in an epic, fast-paced middle-grade adventure trilogy-with a sci-fi twist-set in a modern Ice Age, by acclaimed author Matthew J. Kirby. In the near future, a modern Ice Age has encased half the earth in massive glaciers. For reasons unknown to astronomers, the planet's orbit has shifted, threatening to freeze out all life, and no one knows how to stop it. When Eleanor Peary's mother, a noted climatologist, goes missing in the Arctic looking for answers, it's up to Eleanor to go find her. Along the way, Eleanor will unlock the mysteries of an immortal Inuit tribe, solve the riddle of the ice, and uncover a threat to the earth that may not be from this world.
