Cody and her cousin Derek go on a kayaking trip in a wild fjord in Alaska. Things take a turn for the worst when Cody's kayak was lost in the river with a lot of precious supplies. They encounter menacing waves, immense icebergs, and wild animals while they try to kayak home with little supplies.
I enjoyed the book because it was realistic so I could imagine the events in my head very easily. The book was very descriptive and detailed.

This middle-grade survival story is packed with adventure. Cousins Cody and Derek sneak away from her Alaskan summer home for a camping/kayaking trip in glacial waters. It is immediately obvious that they are ill-prepared, but even though the main character Cody recognizes this, they still go ahead with their poorly planned excursion. They quickly encounter problems which get worse when they are trapped by rising water. The survival aspect of the story is detailed and adventurous. The characters ...more

If you were going on a camping trip, lose all of your items, and be stranded in the cold weather of Alaska what would you do? The book I read is called Frozen Stiff.

Read this with my 11 year old son. He thought it was very boring. I liked it but I do like survival stories. I have never read anything about this area, Alaska and the huge glaciers. That part was interesting for me. I love historical fiction and this story was enlightening. I never realized something like this; a glacier creating a dam and trapping water, wildlife and sea creatures in the fjord, could happen. Now I know. I will be careful If I am ever up in that area at the end of the summer. I ...more

I thought that the book was pretty good, but it isn't the most favorite book that I've read. I thought that is was cool how Cody went after Derek when he went missing. I thought that she was very brave in that way. Also i was surprised that Derek left Cody like that all alone. Over all i thought it was an O.K. book.

Great adventure story

My mom read this book to me when I was younger. At that point in my life I hated reading...but this book made me want to start reading! So this is one of the first official books I've read all the way through.
Amy
Read this with my 9 year old. It's one of her "Battle of the Books" reads, but besides some suspense & natural history references, I thought it was just "okay".
