Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!
I hope you love my December Day 9 pick. You may know WHEN YOU REACH ME by this Newberry Medal winning author, but maybe not this one. It’s a hidden gem, in my opinion:)
FIRST LIGHT by Rebecca Stead!
From the Publisher:
Peter is thrilled to join his parents on an expedition to Greenland, where his father studies global warming. Peter will get to skip school, drive a dogsled, and–finally–share in his dad’s adventures. But on the ice cap, Peter struggles to understand a series of visions that both frighten and entice him.
Thea has never seen the sun. Her extraordinary people, suspected of witchcraft and nearly driven to extinction, have retreated to a secret world they’ve built deep inside the arctic ice. As Thea dreams of a path to Earth’s surface, Peter’s search for answers brings him ever closer to her hidden home.
Rebecca Stead’s fascinating debut novel is a dazzling tale of mystery, science and adventure at the top of the world.
I was mesmerized by this story! Every single page was a glimpse into this amazing world. Both my kids loved this book, but I think I loved it more!
