Twelve-year-old Victoria Von Woolf sometimes feels as if she belongs on another planet—or at least another continent. So when an opportunity comes up for her to travel to Antarctica as the child star of WILD X-PLORER'S next on-line video, she can't wait. It's been her dream to become a scientist and study at the South Pole, and this is a great first step. But Victoria soon realizes that the intentions of the journey's sponsors aren't quite as clear as the polar sky. Can she find a way to rescue a murky mission and an endangered wilderness?

"Children will enjoy the empowerment and resourcefulness of the protagonist and her friend." —School Library Journal
