For the past four years, Zanna has lived with her mother and apart from her twin brother, Martin, and their father. When Mom travels to France, 14-year-old Zanna goes with Martin and their dad to the Alberta ice fields. Soon after they arrive, Martin rescues and takes in an injured puppy, which they name Paris. A handsome young park ranger convinces Zanna that Paris is actually a wolf and she agrees to leave him at the local wolf haven. When Martin is lost, though, they send Paris out to search for the boy who once saved him. This involving novel combines a family story highlighting the mysterious link between twins with a wilderness adventure told through the eyes of a likable city girl. Written with elements of wry humor and romance, this Canadian novel features a narrator whose disarmingly candid opinions make her an appealing guide for readers who usually veer away from backwoods adventures or survival stories.
