 From the back cover:

"Sometimes you have to leave everything behind to find yourself.

Sky is travelling to Alaska to meet her father for the first time.

Far away from her friends back in Australia, she navigates the new relationship with her father and meets Jaxon, a local boy struggling with his own problems. In a cold, vast and beautiful place, they are isolated except for the wild animals who live there.

As Sky gets to know her father, she finally feels she has a chance of having a real family again. But her father has a secret that threatens everything Sky holds dear. Will she have to choose between family and her love of animals?"

This book is the second in a trilogy put out by Pantera Press, Australia as part of their "Animal Allies" series. I enjoyed Ondine Sherman's sequel titled Snow and recommend it to anyone interested in conservation, wildlife and learning about new places (Alaska and Australia) wrapped up in a lot of teen girl angst and a variety of plot twists. If you're looking for an educational read that introduces a strong vegan point of view, read Snow and watch out for the third in the series coming out in 2021.
