Ice Dogs will be released 1 year from today, but today we're getting to see the cover!!! It's SO pretty!!
Isn't it awesome?!?! I love the dog's eyes and the echo with the blue below - just perfect!
Here's the blurb:
Sometimes I wish I could trade places with the dogs. They only have to worry about running and eating. They love fiercely and don’t worry about things they can’t control. And when someone dies, they can sit on top of their house, throw their head back and howl.
That’s how 14-year-old dogsledder Victoria Secord has felt ever since her father died. A champion musher, Victoria is independent, self-reliant, and thanks to her father, an expert in surviving the unforgiving Alaskan bush. When an injured “city boy” and a freak snow storm both catch Victoria and her dog team by surprise, however, a routine trip becomes a life or death trek through the frozen wilderness. As temperatures drop and food stores run out, Victoria must find a way to save them all in this high stakes, high adventure middle grade novel of endurance, hope and finding your way back home.
I've been lucky enough to read an early version of the story and it is absolutely incredible! Can't wait to have the final copy in my hands!
What do you think of the cover and the blurb? Doesn't it make you want to learn to dogsled?
