? Storm amazingly creates a complex story with strong, complex characters set in her native northern Ontario. Readers will feel the cold, as well as Hannah's fear and determination, ensuring they are riveted until the last page.
Booklist (starred review)
Storm's novel is fast paced and engaging, with a realistic plot that is not always seen in other YA survival/adventure novels. While Hannah starts off as immature, she grows in a realistic character arc and has a believable amount of skill and knowledge given the plot circumstances. Storm also balances descriptions of Northern Ontario, background information on running a sled dog team, and plot well enough for readers to be engaged and informed. Recommended for fans of adventure and survival fiction.

Anything that could go wrong does, but Hannah keeps moving forward in a learn-as-you-go adventure
The author does a good job of creating conflict and tension… kids will definitely appreciate the unexpected dangers that [the characters] face and their ability to think on their feet. Recommended.
