by David Estes.
In this installation of David Estes' Country Series we meet Dazz and Buff, two residents of Ice Country that do their best to raise themselves, managing to be as responsible as you can expect 17 year olds to be when left to their own devices. The boys find themselves set upon a journey where they learn responsibility, leadership, teamwork, and just how badly their society is corrupted.
Fans of The Dwellers or Country series will not be disappointed with this latest addition to the story. Estes expands his dystopian world and introduces us to a culture that lives in the mountains where it is always cold and has snow, even in the summer.
In his usual fashion, Estes gives us an entertaining story full of engaging characters, including some familiar faces as several characters from Fire country make an appearance as well. Definitely well worth the read and a book that I am highly confident to recommend to young adults, as well as parents.
