The Way Past Winter
This is a great book about two sisters going on a quest to rescue their brother. Mila lives in a world of snow, where it has remained winter ever since her father left five years ago. She lives with her two sisters and her older brother, until a strange man arrives and takes him away. Mila and Pipa, with the help of Rune, who is a mage, go on a quest to find the island of Thule and save their brother.
The Way Past Winter is an amazing book. It is very well written and kept my attention. The island of Thule was a very interesting place, and the way to get there was also pretty cool. I really liked the chase scenes and the part with the waterfall. Most of the characters were well developed and realistic. Mila was fearless and determined to bring her brother back home. Pipa was younger, but she was just as determined. Overall, this was a great book. I would recommend it to kids in junior high and high school, and to anyone who likes fantasy stories.
