Thanks to Amy Fellner Dominy, the author of OyMG and Audition & Subtraction, I’m featuring the book trailer for Terry Lynn Johnson’s upcoming release Ice Dogs. I didn’t know she had a new book coming releasing this year, so I’m extra thankful for the recommendation. Ice Dogs, which releases on February 4th from HMH Books for Young Readers, sounds like a book that will appeal to both middle grade and young adult readers. I know freshmen readers are often looking for something with action and adventure, so I bet this will be a hit.
I’m really appreciating the book trailer recommendations, so if you have more please send them my way!
BTW–Goodreads is hosting a giveaway of five copies of Ice Dogs which ends on January 31st.
Summary (From Goodreads):
Victoria Secord, a 14-year-old Alaskan dogsled racer, loses her way on a routine outing with her dogs. With food gone and temperatures dropping, her survival, and that of her dogs and the mysterious boy she meets in the woods, is entirely up to her.
Author Terry Lynn Johnson is a musher herself and her crackling writing puts readers at the reins as Victoria and Chris experience setbacks, mistakes, and small triumphs in their wilderness adventure.
