The American Library Association (ALA) has a prestigious award called the Michael L. Printz Award. In 2008, The White Darkness won. This is a very adventurous story about Sym–who is in love with a dead person! Titus Oates was the captain of an expedition to the South Pole, yet Sym is pretty obsessed with this historical figure. When she ventures out on a dangerous expedition with her uncle to the Antarctic wilderness, she experiences the dangerous struggles of existence on this adventure. They are looking for Symme’s Hole–an opening that leads to the center of the Earth!
