Antarctic Scoop

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?
