First Light reminds me just a bit of Surviving Antarctica: Reality TV 2083 by Andrea White, meets the City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau. I must admit, I'm only 2/3 of the way done with it, but I love where it's heading, especially in this chilly weather! Peter, a guy from New York, travels with his parents who are researching Global Warming, to Antarctica. Or at least that's what they say they are doing in the Artic Circle...but....And then there's Thea, who clearly lives in an underground ice world. Think the Ice Hotel they build every year in Sweden (http://www.icehotel.com/Winter/Home/). Thea's world seems sort of winter-wonderland. How will they meet? Will they meet? What secret are Peter's parents keeping from him, and why does he get these odd Earth-spinning headaches. For you dog lovers, there's a unique sort of side story about these amazing Artic dogs with a fantastic lineage who are a reason enough to read this novel.
