Recommended for gr. 6-10. My favorite so far of the Virginia Readers' Choice middle school books. Mark is a contemporary middle schooler who is excited to miss school to accompany his parents to Greenland where his scientist father is studying global warming. Thea lives in an underground world created by her people generations ago to escape persecution. How their separate worlds come together makes for fascinating reading. Students who liked City of Ember should like this one. It will also appeal to both boys and girls.
