The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean

1 Comment

Captain Oates, hero of the Antarctic, has been dead for nearly a century. But not in Sym’s head.

There, he is her constant companion, her soul mate, her advisor, her resort.
It is as if he walked out of the Polar blizzard and into her mind.

In fact, if it were not for Titus, life might be as bleak a place as the Antarctic wilderness.

Then a little holiday with her Uncle Victor makes her ask the question she has long been avoiding: Who but the mad trust for happiness to someone or something that isn’t there?
