The earth is thriving - with wilderness status protecting land and wildlife, and scientific organisations researching new ways to support human life sustainably. Rory's mum is a geologist on one of these projects, and Rory is beyond excited to join her on a work trip to the Arctic. But the project isn't all that it seems, and Rory soon learns what's at stake for the people and animals who live there... A thrilling and thought-provoking ecological adventure from the author of the highly acclaimed WHERE THE WORLD TURNS WILD and BETWEEN SEA AND SKY. Perfect for fans of THE EXPLORER, THE LAST WILD and WHERE THE RIVER RUNS GOLD.

I was totally immersed... I could almost smell the sea and feel salt in my hair. Powerful storytelling and a thought-provoking tale." - Gill Lewis, author of Sky Hawk "A shimmering testament to the restorative power of nature and the limitless wonder unearthed by childhood curiosity." - Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild "BOSS level MG dystopia, so vivid!" - Louie Stowell, author of The Dragon in the Library "Nicola Penfold makes me want to love our planet harder, hold it closer." - Rashmi Sirdeshpande, author of How to Change the World "This is compelling, high-stakes storytelling... This will be a favourite that I will return to over and over again." - Nizrana Farook, author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant "An original and wonderful story of wild children and a world in trouble ... so perfectly written that reading it is living it. And living it is an adventure." - Rachel Delahaye, author of Mort the Meek
