LoveReading View on Wilderness

This is a stunning piece of writing for young teenagers. Part-action, part family drama the plot cleverly interweaves two stories. The first is of two brothers who with their mother are on a trip of a lifetime in the frozen arctic north. The second is the story of their older teenage stepsister who is coming to terms with the reappearance of her mother in her life. Doyle weaves a brilliant portrait of family life, love and loss. It’s Doyle at his exciting best.

Wilderness Synopsis

Suddenly, Johnny and Tom were moving, fast. They were gliding over the snow, behind eight dogs. Out the gate – and they saw more snow than they’d ever seen before.
More snow than they’d ever imagined.

Johnny had to do it.

He had to shout – it was so exciting

“Wilderness!”

And Tom joined in, like an echo.

“Wild-er-ness!!”
