Super duper exciting book! Easy to read and follow along. AMAZING plot and great characters. It's easy to know what each character is thinking or feeling - even the dogs have great personalities. Adventurous and when you think it's gonna be okay, the plot just thickens and keeps you on the edge of your seat in suspense. Love this book! Great read for everyone.

Ice Dogs is a well written survival story that reminded me of several stories by Gary Paulsen. I enjoyed reading about Vicky and her relationship with her sled dogs. Her journey home had many obstacles along the way.
