The Austins have settled back into their beloved home in the country after more than a year away. Though they had all missed the predictability and security of life in Thornhill, Vicky Austin is discovering that slipping back into her old life isn't easy. She's been changed by life in New York City and her travels around the country, while her old friends seem to have stayed the same. So Vicky finds herself spending time with a new friend, Serena Eddington - the great-aunt of a boy Vicky met over the summer.

Aunt Serena gives Vicky an incredible birthday gift - a month-long trip to Antarctica. It's the opportunity of a lifetime. But Vicky is nervous. She's never been away from her family before.

Once she sets off though, she finds that's the least of her worries. She receives threatening letters. She's surrounded by suspicious characters. Vicky no longer knows who to trust. And she may not make it home alive. Download and start listening now!

    " This book I thought was super boring. I couldn't get into it and I never wanted to read it. Some parts are good and some parts are confusing... the book is to complicated. "

    " This was a pretty good book, not the best I've read from L'Engle but still entertaining. I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the plot, some of the characters who were introduced, and learning a great deal about Antarctica in the process, including a ton of new info on penguins. Recommended if you're already a Vicky Austin fan and enjoy light adventure, a little mystery, and some education with your fiction. "

    " I so wanted to love this book, b/c I really wanted the continuation of Vicky and Adam's relationship. But this one felt like it was just a tacked on story, written to satisfy the fans and not really because L'Engle was inspired to write it. It had some good parts, and told a nice story, but the magic from the previous book wasn't there. "
