When Uncle Victor whisks Sym away to Paris, she is delighted. He's been so kind and attentive, preparing her a special diet, teaching her all about advanced science and the Antarctic, and taking good care of her and Mum ever since her father died. When the short jaunt turns into a surprise trip to Antarctica, Sym is even more thrilled at the chance to visit the final resting place of her secret confidant, the doomed polar explorer Titus Oates. But the trip soon becomes a struggle against a deadly wilderness and a lunatic's ambitions. A 2008 Michael L. Printz Honor Book.
