Ice Dogs

Staff Review: Ice Dogs

"Ice Dogs" by Terry Lynn Johnson

Cover: 'Ice Dogs'


"Ice Dogs" is a very well written adventure book for tweens. The story is told from 14 year-old Victoria Secord's point of view, and follows her adventure of being lost in the Alaskan Wilderness. Victoria has grown up in Alaska and has been around dogsled racers most of her life. Following the death of her dad she takes to the races. While out on a run she happens across a boy who has been in a snowmobile accident and helps him find his way home. Along the way they get lost and need to get home before the cold takes them. I couldn't put the book down! It was gripping yet humorous. It's a great book for boys and girls who love animals and adventure.

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction, action adventure
