Captain Titus Oates, hero of the Antarctic, has been dead for nearly a century. But not in Sym's head. In there, he is her constant companion, her soul mate, her adviser. It is as if he walked out of the Polar blizzard and into her mind. In fact, if it were not for Titus, life might be as bleak a place as the Antarctic wilderness. When she is taken on a mystery expedition by her eccentric uncle Victor, Sym can't believe her luck. Destination Antarctica-the very place she's always wanted to visit. But Victor has other plans, more sinister than Sym could possibly imagine. Stranded in the most isolated part of the world with her trust in someone she comes to realize is a madman, she must find a way to avoid a gruesome fate. But what should a teenage girl do? Could it be that Titus, the one who perished in that very place, will be the means of her survival?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Geraldine McCaughrean has long been a fine novelist; The White Darkness makes her a great one as well. Wickedly funny and diabolically clever . . . this has to be one of the most remarkable novels for children published in the last fifty years. * Nicholas Tucker *
A breathtakingly fine novel. * Lindsey Fraser, The Bookseller *
The White Darkness is simply brilliant, totally original, always surprising... McCaughrean, as always, writes like a dream. * Wendy Cooling *
A dazzling, pitiless story about Antarctica. McCaughrean's imagination is fierce, tireless, unpredictable. * The Observer *
The White Darkness is as good as it gets. * Independent on Sunday *
A very disturbing, very dark teen-read' * Lady Fanciful (Blog) *
Listed on The Sunday Times' 100 Best Children's Books from the last 10 years
