Surviving Antarctica Reality TV 2083

Its 50 degrees below zero.
The wind and snow blow so hard, you can't see your hand in front of your face. Your heating fuel is nearly gone, and so is your food. How do you survive?

As you read, you are with five 14-year-olds on a reality show of the future - Antarctic Historical Survivor. These kids are to retrace the adventure of Robert F. Scott's doomed try for the South Pole in 1912. This is not just for fun; this is the only way these young people will be able to continue their education. If they win, they will get a scholarship. As you read this book you will learn much about Scott's trip, you will also learn about each of the members of the teen team. As I read, I really disliked the Secretary of Entertainment who was named "Hot Sauce" by the teens. This fictional glimpse into the future is unnerving. The bright spot is the crew on the nightshift at the DOE.
