Happy Valentines Day!

Today I'm thrilled to share the cover of Terry Johnson's new book, ICE DOGS, which releases on February 14, 2014. I'll be interviewing her when it comes out.  I have a super soft spot for Terry because she was the first debut author I interviewed when I joined Casey as her blog partner.

So here's Terry's awesome cover!

Isn't it amazing? And here's a description of ICE DOGS:

Sometimes I wish I could trade places with the dogs. 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.
That’s how 14-year-old dogsledder Victoria Secord as felt ever since her father dies. A champion musher, Victoria is independent, self-reliant, and thanks to her father, an expert in surviving the unforgiving Alaskan bush. When an injured “city boy” and a freak snow storm both catch Victoria and her dog team by surprise, however, a routine trip becomes a life or death trek through the frozen wilderness. As temperatures drop and food stores run out, Victoria must find a way to save them all in this high stakes, high adventure middle grade novel of endurance, hope and finding your way back home. 

And here's some information about Terry.

 I write outdoor adventures for young adults. When I'm not writing, I work as a Conservation Officer, and before that, I was a Park Ranger and a musher. I love living in northern Ontario where I can snowshoe, kayak, and fish—all in the same month!

Hope you'll all let Terry know how much you like her cover.

And I hope to see you on Monday when I have an interview with a high school teen for my ASK THE EXPERT series and will be sharing and giving away THE CADET OF TILDOR, a fantastic debut fantasy, and OBSIDIAN MIRROR, another fantastic fantasy by Catherine Fisher, one of my favorite authors. Even if you're not a fantasy lover, I think you'd enjoy both of these books..


  1. It IS a great cover! I'm looking forward to reading this book one day!

  2. YAY!!! Dogsled Dreams is always one of the favourite books I read throughout the year to my students and they're so stressed this book isn't out for another year!

  15. Great cover, but it is the book description that really draws me in. Strong girl character = adding it to my queue.

  16. Awesome cover! I had a husky for 12 years and could totally see the sled dog mentality under the surface. Your book sounds awesome! Can't wait to read it!

  17. The cover is ADORABLE, and the story sounds so cute. Thanks for sharing this with us. I can't wait for its release!!

    1. * The cute part of the story is how Victoria thinks about trading places with the dogs sometimes. Don't think I want to call being caught in a freak snow storm cute!! Still, THE COVER IS ADORABLE. (Love dogs <3)

  18. I love this book! I was so in to I ce Dogs, it only took me only two days to read. I think you should stop reading reviews and start reading Ice Dogs!
