Hannah must rely on her survival instincts to endure a brutal ice storm and save her family.

At first, when a massive ice storm traps fourteen-year-old Hannah and her family in a remote cabin, it feels like a game to practise the survival skills she's been learning. That all changes when an accident leaves her mother desperately low on insulin. With no power and no way to contact the outside world, Hannah steals away with the four family dogs tied to an old dogsled.

All she has to do is make it to the nearest cabin and find a working phone to save the day. But a wrong turn and worsening weather leave her in grave danger and saddled with an unexpected passenger. Hannah must use all her skills and resourcefulness to get help for her family — before they all freeze to death in the wilderness.

  • A wilderness thriller for young adults starring a teenage girl who uses her survival and dog-training skills to save her family, herself, and a mysterious stranger during a deadly ice storm
  • Remote northern setting and sled dogs play a major role in the compelling action
  • Puts a premium on realism: Author is from the north and trains dogs in wilderness skills
  • Author appeared in panel discussions and spots on the SciFi Network, speaks at conventions, and is a seasoned interviewee

Jo Storm grew up in Muskoka and makes frequent pilgrimages there to lean her back up against the Canadian Shield. She has trained dogs in agility, obedience, and scent detection, and is a dog sledder. She lives in northern Ontario.
