(From the publisher):
When thirteen-year-old Helen and her eleven-year-old brother Michael head off on an Arctic expedition, neither realizes just how extraordinary this trip will be. The Arctic Ocean begins an early freeze-over, catching the ship's crew and captain by surprise, and the ship becomes trapped in ice. In the pages of her diary, Helen records the fate of the crew and her family as they leave the ship and try to make their way across the shifting ice floes, through blinding blizzards and past hungry polar bears to safety on solid land.
