So many people have loved this book I think it's just not my thing After the death of her father 14 year old Symone excruciatingly shy hearing impaired geek with an imaginary friend is whisked away on a surprise trip to Antarctica by her Uncle Victor From the start you can sense that something's not right here Victor's acting fishy lying to Sym about their destination stealing her mother's passport so she can't come with them and things just get bleaker and bleaker as the journey goes on My frustration is that Sym is so blinded by admiration for her Uncle who's actually just a close family friend not a blood relative that she can't see that things are horribly wrong I kept waiting for her to take charge and save the day or at least save herself but she just kept going with the flow as things got worse and worse Also the fact that Sym is so shy and the person she talks to most is a dead historic figure who only exists insider her head well it's a very odd perspective I will say that there is some great writing in this book though The plot and characters just didn't do it for me
