This book is about a boy named Orion who meets a stranger under a ship that was wrecked. The stranger gives Orion a knapsack that holds a dispatch box with a map. To find out the meaning of the map, he brings it to a friend of his grandpa's named Professor Meriwether. Together they head out on an expedition to see where the map leads. This expedition takes them to the top of the world. They end up finding themselves in a colony and accused of murder! Orion is the only one who is not in prison. Can he help his friends escape and still survive?
I love this book because of the way the author writes. He creates some amazing events and some crazy people to keep the story interesting. I really like the beginning when Orion’s life totally changes. I think the whole idea that his life changes in a snap is just amazing; it is also cool that it keeps you wanting more. So if you like adventures that are a little dangerous, you will love this book.
