As with all Madeleine L'Engle books I've read, I enjoyed this book. I love how she describes the growth processes that Vicky goes through. She always take me back in time a bit. I was actually surprise to see the book was published in the 90s, because I was envisioning it taking place earlier in my head, but I guess it could have been too much earlier, because the splitting of the Soviet Union had already happened.

She definitely packs the book with social and political themes, but I don't have a problem with learning what she cares about and thinks is important. I really enjoyed the descriptions of Antarctica and all the different kind of penguins.

I think this is a very solid young adult novel with a bit of mystery and suspense.
