"I have been in love with Titus Oates for quite a while now — which is ridiculous, since he's been dead for ninety years. But look at it this way. In ninety years I'll be dead, too, and then the age difference won't matter."Even though it's been less than a week, I've already forgotten where I first read about this book. Thanks, though, to whoever mentioned it because, after reading only this far, I'm already "into" this book. The dust jacket tells me the main character is "obsessed with the Antarctic and the brave, romantic figure of Captain Oates from Scott's doomed expedition to the South Pole" and her uncle "takes her on a dream trip into the bleak Antarctic wilderness." I'm ready to tag along with them. Good beginning. And it won the Printz Award.
