    1. This is another book aimed at teenagers that has a message within it. It deals with the issue of science verses nature, of western cultures dismissing older native cultures, and the sacrifice of the few to benefit the many. All of these issues are seen and weighed by a teenage girl named Liza.The book is set after a natural disaster, and the world is at imminent risk of the next ice age. Scientists have less than five years to prevent the ice sheet overrunning the last human outposts. This disas [...]

    2. It's not fair damn it! Monica set up a wonderful Kobayashi Maru, that tackled some hard hitting environmental questions, then just, well, stopped writing? You can't cop out like that Monica! I really wanted to find out what was on the other side of that end game. More importantly, I wanted to hear what you had to say on the subject. Now I have to use my own imagination and formulate my own opinion? I already know what I think, I would like to hear what you think.

    3. This was a pretty good book, though I would have liked a little bit more detail of her life. I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the other Monica Hughes books I've read. Re-reading it as an adult, I found the main character a little bit annoying, though she did grow through the book. Her tendency to act without thinking of the consequences put her and others in danger.People who enjoy post apocalyptic and dystopian fiction would probably enjoy this one.

    4. Set in Western Canada with the next Ice Age threatening, a story about a girl who discovers a different way of life, saved by the People and shown love, taught the ways of bending with nature and live with the land. Except that way of life is threatened (of course) my modern science trying to save the entire planet.I liked how much immediate closure to the story there was, while still leaving the future to your own imagination.

    5. I love this book, and I first read it when I was a teenager. It probably started my love of dystopian fiction, and I found it profound and emotional. Reading it again as an adult it felt like very good teenage fiction, and still a great plot and idea for a dystopian world. It echoes the handmaids tale from a feminist point of view and additionally has some environmental insight too.

    6. Liza was one of the more emotionally immature characters that I have read about in a long time and as a result I didn't find her very interesting.
