For those who missed the post about this popular YA novel, here is an excerpt:

Terry Lynn Johnson's vivid writing reflects a passion born out of her sled dog knowledge and as such brings readers of all ages a thrilling adventure!  

The suspense builds up from the onset when fourteen year old Victoria, unbeknownst to her mother, treks across the countryside to secure new lead dogs in hopes of winning the White Wolf race. 
Remembering her father's recommendations, she packs a sleeping bag and a few snacks at the last moment, a last minute decision which will prove vital.

Readers of ICE DOGS will find themselves turning page after page to find out what happens next to Victoria and her dogs when per chance they happen on young Chris and his wrecked snowmobile on the trail. 
Chris recently moved from Toronto to Alaska and is ill equipped for any outing in the wild. When a sudden storm moves in, the two young people must team up to survive and find their way home or die in the wilderness.

Here is Terry's message to her readers:

"I hope to see you!
...Seriously, please come and smile at me: I'll be the one dressed as a musher and looking enthusiastic but big city terrified!"

Note to readers: I usually shy away from crowds but this is one time I will brave it to meet this keen musher (and ask her to sign my copy of her book!)
