" She had a plan. It went south. Harper is a dancer. She and her best friend, Kate, have one goal- becoming professional ballerinas. And Harper won't let anything-or anyone-get in the way of The Plan, not even the boy she and Kate are both drawn to. Harper is a Scott. She's related to Robert Falcon Scott, the explorer who died racing to the South Pole. So when Harper's life takes an unexpected turn, she finagles (read- lies) her way to the icy dark of McMurdo Station . . . in Antarctica. Extreme, but somehow fitting-apparently she has always been in the dark, dancing on ice this whole time. And no one warned her. Not her family, not her best friend, not even the boy who has somehow found a way into her heart. "One of the most breathtaking explorations of navigating heartbreak that I've ever read. This is one for the ages.

I don't really have much of a comment for this book. I liked it. But I dislike (Modren) romance in books. But it was fine.
