At the start I was quite sceptical about all events and storyline. But no doubt it's a great story that will stay with me for a long time. I cried like a baby and yet, I'm so happy that I read this book!
Aug 05, Brenda rated it it was amazing Shelves: middle-grades. This would be a great book to pair with Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. Jan 14, Josiah rated it it was ok. When a dogsledding story is done well, I can't think of anything more beautiful to write about in the natural world.
Racing for miles through glittery, unbroken snow; blizzard conditions as eerie and deadly as the deep ocean; frozen bodies of water that one feels a twinge of fear in crossing, however solid the ice appears to be. Gary Paulsen wrote a few classic dogsledding books, and their realism owes to the years he spent running his dog team in Minnesota and Alaska, even completing the legend When a dogsledding story is done well, I can't think of anything more beautiful to write about in the natural world.
Gary Paulsen wrote a few classic dogsledding books, and their realism owes to the years he spent running his dog team in Minnesota and Alaska, even completing the legendary Iditarod race. Terry Lynn Johnson has similar experience to draw on, and Ice Dogs is probably more compelling than if she were merely a writer who did research. Extreme cold is the enemy for fourteen-year-old Victoria Secord and her sled dogs when they lose their way in the Alaskan wilderness. To make it to safety they'll need heavy doses of luck and pluck, and even that might not be sufficient to tame the wilds.
Victoria doesn't like the gist of recent conversations between her mother and maternal grandmother. Victoria's mother seems to like the idea of moving to a warmer climate after Victoria's father died in a dogsledding accident when he was out alone. He loved running the dogs all winter in Alaska, as Victoria does, but her mother might be happier starting over elsewhere. Still mourning her father, Victoria wants no part of moving away from the open land she and her dogs have to run. She's coming into her own as a competitive musher behind Bean, Blue, and the rest of her dogs.
Leaving now would mean never fulfilling their potential as a team, and that would feel like dishonoring her father's memory. One afternoon she sets out with the dogs to meet Jeremy Cook, a local breeder who can get her a couple more quality canines to firm up her team's leadership, a must if she's to start winning races.
Victoria has no idea she's embarking on a life-threatening adventure. The weather turns bad en route to Cook's place and Victoria considers hunkering down for the night, though her mother would worry because Victoria didn't tell her she was going on this trip. Before Victoria can decide, she finds a boy her age in the snow, injured in a snowmobile wreck. Chris recently moved here from the city, and doesn't know the wilderness as Victoria does. On his own in this blizzard, his snowmobile broken down, he'd die. They head for Cook's place hoping to arrive before nightfall, but the snowstorm is out of control.
Sharp as the dogs' instincts are, they can't sniff out the trail to Cook's house, and Victoria grows anxious as they continue forward with no sign of civilization on the horizon. She, Chris, and the dogs can hole up in their sled for a night or two, but they can't survive indefinitely without adequate shelter, especially with no food. Hope for rescue fades as days pass and they seem farther from society than ever, and Victoria's arguments with Chris only serve to distract her.
She can't figure out if she likes the city boy, but he's not much help in a survival situation. The humans and dogs weaken each day, and though Victoria doesn't want to admit it, the odds are against them living through this adventure. Where is the hero they desperately need? Gary Paulsen's admiration for dogs is evident in his writing, and the same can be said of Terry Lynn Johnson's.
Though young, Victoria recognizes her dogs' instinctual wisdom. They only have to worry about running and eating. They love fiercely and don't worry about things they can't control. And when someone dies, they can sit on top of their house, throw their head back, and howl. Then they can begin a new day. Victoria blames herself for not being there to save her father, and blames her mother for not allowing Victoria to accompany him that day. She carries her resentment everywhere, but the dogs aren't tormented by old feelings. Victoria envies how they grieve and then move on, though she misses her father and needs to sense his presence in order to be motivated to survive the predicament she and Chris are in.
Her father is as important in this story as any other character. Victoria isn't like most girls her age; she wants to master dogsledding, and it's important to believe in herself and project confidence as the leader of her dogs. That's the way to become good at anything. So just make sure you're pretending the right things. She's on track to become the person she wants to be, bumpy as the ride is, and her perspective will be forever enhanced if she lives through the current crisis. The problems you had before won't go away, but now you know you're luckier than you realized, and gratitude is a good mindset for tackling life's issues.
That's elite company, and I'm not certain she belongs, at least not just from this book. Ice Dogs is a good read that skirts the edge of greatness, but doesn't quite enter the territory of the immortal Gary Paulsen and other top wilderness writers. Victoria's emotional connection with her father is poignant, though, indicating that Terry Lynn Johnson has what it takes to be an exceptional storyteller.
I'm giving this book two and a half stars, and I wasn't far from rounding that up rather than down. If you want the feeling of riding snowy trails behind a team of dogs who would sacrifice everything for you, look to Terry Lynn Johnson. She has firsthand experience to share. View 2 comments. Jan 10, A rated it it was amazing. Its a survival story, with heartwarming characters, its sometimes funny, and a great storyline.
Jan 18, Cheryl rated it really liked it. Victoria owns her own dog sledding team. She is good at what she does and does not do so bad in races either. This is all thanks to Victoria's father. He taught her everything that she needs to know about having a successful dog sledding team. Sadly, Victoria's father died. Victoria decides to take her team out for a run. Victoria comes upon a boy. He is hurt. His name is Chris. Victoria tries to get Chris home but realizes that it will be Victoria's greatest adventure yet I picked up this book to give to my nephews.
I thought that they might enjoy reading about sled dogs even if the team is lead by a girl. I read this book and enjoyed it. The chapters are short and the words are easy to understand. So for the targeted age group that this book is recommended for of 10 and up, is perfect. My nephews will be able to read the book all by themselves. Plus, I did not find that the scary moments with the wolves and Victoria and Chris lost in the wilderness were too scary.
I know my nephews just like me will fall in love with all of Victoria's dogs. The author has a good ability to story tell.
I felt like I was there with Victoria and Chris and her dogs and could feel the cold chill. I can not wait to see what Terry comes out with next. Ice Dogs is a howling good time for all ages!

It's sad how the dad died but other than that I love this book, it's interesting how the author had Chris end up in the middle of this and because of this they then get lost. Both Victoria and Chris learned how to survived in the wilderness and learned things from their adventure. Feb 01, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , goodreads-giveaway.
This book was a fun, exciting survival story about a girl and her dog sled team. The story is exciting and incorporates information about mushing dog sled riding and outdoor survival, without becoming too bogged down with detailed info-dumps, or just seeming like a never-ending string of things going wrong, which often happens in survival books and movies.
The story is made more interesting by introducing the character of Chris, whom Vicky finds passed out after a snowmobile accident. Although the "messages" of the book are somewhat obvious, I didn't mind this in a book oriented toward elementary- and middle-grade readers. I appreciated the positive messages that it's okay to be "weird," because doing what you like instead of trying to fit in with others pays off in the end, and that we can't do everything on our own or just for ourselves.
I also appreciate that this is a book by an author who lives in a rural area about a girl who lives in a rural area and likes it. Considering the composition of the US population, it always seems like books are about city or suburban kids, and if they're about kids from rural areas, they're about misfit kids wanting to leave for the big city. In Ice Dogs , Vicky is somewhat of the odd person out because she's a young person who wants to remain in rural Alaska, and who likes the older traditions dog sledding, community feasts with moose all the ways you can eat it.

Ice Dogs exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who enjoys. Particularly working dogs who behave like real dogs and steal your heart without being sappy and also without dying at the end. Johnson did a fantastic job here. I admit that my familiarity with the world of sled dogs is limited to watching the animated Balto films countless times, also Snow Dogs and Eight Below.
Not very impressive. But with this book I felt totally immersed in Victoria's life, mushing in Alaska. The pacing was great. The characters developed well, the current events and the backstory that is revealed piece by piece were both interesting, and the end was satisfying. Very, very pleased with this book and glad I read it. I'd love to find more dog-sledding stories now, I'm just afraid they won't measure up to this! Victoria is a young teenager that is coping with the loss of her father. She finds solace in dog mushing and recalling the survival skills her late father taught her.
Victoria's talents are put to the test when she finds herself caught on the trail alone in a snowstorm. Just when Victoria thinks things can't get much worse, she finds a teenager boy, Chris, that has crashed his snowmobile. The two have to learn how to rely on one another as time and the weather work against them. I like the setti Victoria is a young teenager that is coping with the loss of her father.
I like the setting and Victoria's friendship with her dogs. I like that she and Chris aren't teen caricatures. They have honest reactions and honest dialogue. A great first book. I look forward to more from this author. Jul 13, Becki rated it liked it. Set in the unforgiven Alaskan wilderness Ice Dogs is a tale about triumphing over obstacles, survival and believing in yourself. It's a really intense read especially for a middle grade read. This story is fast paced and full of real life lessons, morale choices and techniques when facing the many trials thrown in Victoria's path.
The dogs were fantastically written and all had their own little personalities. It was so easy to fall in love with every aspect of this book, I wish I read it when I Set in the unforgiven Alaskan wilderness Ice Dogs is a tale about triumphing over obstacles, survival and believing in yourself.

I loved this book so much I have read it four times. I first read it in 6th grade then it progressed and I just finished reading it for the fourth time. I am now in 8th grade, 13 years of age, and love the book still. I think adults and kids my age would love the book.
You will fall in love with Victoria and Chris and the many many dogs Victoria has 16 dogs I beleive. Sep 02, Ailbhe Killalea rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites.
