Teen Pick of the Week: After the Snow

After the Snow by S.D. Crockett
The oceans stopped working long before Willo was born, so a world of ice and snow is the only one he's ever known. But Willo is good at surviving. He watches the animals, learns their ways, and traps them for food and their furs. His father says that their family a beacon of hope, living on their own beyond the government's approval, but Willo doesn't really care about that sort of thing. Until the day he returns from trapping to find his family gone. Unused to being Number One and worried about scavengers, Willo loads what he can onto sleds and sets off to find refuge on the top of a mountain. There he will build shelter and devise a plan for getting his family back. But on the way, he discovers a young girl and her brother, abandoned and starving. What he does then will jeopardize his chances of survival--and alter the course of his destiny.
