Product Overview

More than anything, Maya wants to discover something incredible. Her parents are scientists: Her mother spends most of her time in tropical rainforests, uncovering ancient artifacts, and her dad is obsessed with digging up mammoths. When her father gets invited by an eccentric billionaire to lead a team investigating a mammoth?s remains in the Arctic, Maya begs to come along. Upon her arrival at the isolated camp, the mammoth is quickly revealed to be a fake, but there is something hidden in the ice?something unbelievable. Along with a team of international experts, each with his or her own agenda and theory about the mystery in the ice, Maya learns more about this discovery, which will change her life forever.
Laura Quimby expertly mixes adventure, science, and wonder into a page-turning story perfect for middle-grade explorers.

Praise for The Icarus Project
"Who wouldn?t want to find something earth-shatteringly unique while on an Arctic expedition?.. Quimby?s plot is exuberantly fast-paced and earnest."
?Kirkus Reviews

"Maya?s earnest first-person point of view and sense of fair play make her easy to root for, and the inclusion of a boy character as a foil to Maya, along with lively writing and plenty of action, will help this middle-grade novel pull in reluctant readers."
?Booklist

"Maya is an earnest and likable character and the plot is fast-paced enough to hold readers? attention. Maya?s curiosity, bravery, and desire to do the right thing will resonate with many readers."
?School Library Journal
