Part psychological thriller, part survival story, a young girl’s uncle kidnaps her and so begins a mysterious trip to Antarctica in this novel filled with edge-of-your-seat plotting, gritty authenticity, and beautiful writing. Siller’s voice perfectly embodies the mercurial emotions of a teenage girl hindered by terrible shyness, a hearing impairment, and social awkwardness, while Morant brings almost unbearable poignancy to his portrayal of the vanished Captain Oates.
