Follow the Bound by Ice Blog Tour!
Before I start I am going to ask for some help. The next time that Sandra and Rich have a blog tour, please remind me to go first. They are powerful writers. There books are fantastic. There are so many great YA blogs out there that have reviewed Bound by Ice that the bar has been raised. On top of that, the book received a starred review on Kirkus just two days ago. Perhaps, the first order of business to point you to the fine work of others:
If the weather in your area is still hot, just reading this book might cool you down. I lived in Utah long enough that very thought of snow makes me shiver and thank my lucky stars that I live in Las Vegas. There are several things I can let go about cold weather: 1. ) I never want to shovel snow again. 2. ) I don't want to start a snow blower after it has been in the garage for 8 months. 3. ) I can pass on leading another scout troop on a winter camp. 4. ) Sleeping in a snow cave is already off of my bucket list (By the way, I don't think it has to be on anybody's list). 5. ) Explaining to adolescents that yes, a fire will melt the souls of your boots is for younger souls than me. 6. ) I hope to never have to rock a car back and forth to free it from ice and snow as that very snow and ice is sprayed all over me. Well, you get the idea. I have had my share of snow. I can't even begin to understand the frozen trials of the USS Jeannette. This is one of the times I am absolutely thrilled to be learning about something vicariously. Let's face it my snow adventures have been limited to two days. I can't even begin to image the difficult two years that George Washington De Long’s crew experienced striving to explore the North Pole.
In short, both Rich and Sandra are authors you should be reading. Since winter is coming, why not start with Bound by Ice.
