Publisher Comments:

Peter is thrilled to join his parents on an expedition to Greenland, where his father studies global warming. Peter will get to skip school, drive a dogsled, and–finally–share in his dad’s adventures. But on the ice cap, Peter struggles to understand a series of visions that both frighten and entice him.

Thea has never seen the sun. Her extraordinary people, suspected of witchcraft and nearly driven to extinction, have retreated to a secret world they’ve built deep inside the arctic ice. As Thea dreams of a path to Earth’s surface, Peter’s search for answers brings him ever closer to her hidden home.

Rebecca Stead’s fascinating debut novel is a dazzling tale of mystery, science and adventure at the top of the world.

Synopsis:

Peter and Thea are from two different worlds. Peter is thrilled to leave New York City to accompany his parents on an expedition to Greenland to study global warming. There he has visions of things that should be too far away for him to see, visions that lead him to explore.

Thea's community, Gracehope, lives deep underground. Generations ago her people were hunted for possessing unusual abilities, and they fled beneath the ice. Thea and her cousin Mattias discover a path to the surface, and the sun. When Mattias is injured, Thea needs help that only Peter can give. Their meeting reveals secrets of both their pasts, and changes the future for Peter's family and Gracehope forever.
