This book alternates between two main characters: Thea and Peter. At first the two stories seem unrelated, but as the story unfolds, the connection is revealed.
Peter's father studies glaciers and global warming. Peter and his mom accompany Peter's dad on a research expedition to Greenland. While there, Peter discovers that he & his mom have unusual powers - Peter also finds out that his mom's history is not what he had always believed.
Thea lives in a frozen underground city, but longs to see the stars. She is thwarted by her grandmother who lost her daughter (Thea's mother) to exploring the wider world.
A real page-turner.
