When Jesse went to the marsh, he expected to find a turtle for terrapin soup. Instead, he discovered a dying slave woman who made Jesse promise he’d take her young son, Perry, to a relative in Baltimore. With civil war brewing, it’s a journey more treacherous than Jesse ever imagined.

by Ruth Fox
On a night of frost and ice, she falls from the sky, the beautiful ice-girl Cari, cast out of her world and into ours.
It’s an unusually cold Winter, but 15 year old Jake is more concerned with the ice forming in his dad’s new relationship and the fact that the girl he likes is dating his best friend.
And now his elderly neighbour is acting even weirder than usual. Could things get even more confusing?
Then Jake finds Cari, lost and alone. Who is she? What has she got to do with the sudden frost, and the wondrous silver city that has appeared in the sky? And what does his elderly neighbour, Mrs Henders know about it all?
Jake is determined to find out. But the secrets Cari bears are more dangerous than Jake can ever imagine. And the fate of our entire world – and that of the City of Silver Light – now rest in their hands.
