I’d never read anything by Geraldine McCaughrean before but I was drawn to this book, The White Darkness, because of my interest in polar history. The protagonist, Sym, is taken to Antarctica by her uncle and the tale is an exciting adventure story. However, she also has an imaginary friend, the polar explorer Titus Oates, one of the five who made it to the South Pole in 1912 only to die on the return journey. Definitely recommended, I really enjoyed this book.
