The White Darkness is a novel by Geraldine McCaughrean, published in 2005 by Oxford University Press. It won the 2008 Michael L. Printz Award from the American Library Association. Shy teenager Symone ‘Sym’ Wates is taken to Antarctica by her domineering 'uncle', Victor Briggs, who after the death of her real parent has elected himself her surrogate father

Captain Titus Oates, hero of the Antarctic, has been dead for nearly a century. But not in Sym's head. In there, he is her constant companion, her soul mate, her adviser. It is as if he walked out of the Polar blizzard and into her mind.

Captain Titus Oates, hero of the Antarctic, has been dead for nearly a century. In fact, if it were not for Titus, life might be as bleak a place as the Antarctic wilderness. Destination Antarctica-the very place she's always wanted to visit. But Victor has other plans, more sinister than Sym could possibly imagine.

Adèle Geras is delighted by Geraldine McCaughrean's rip-roaring adventure yarn, The White Darkness. McCaughrean writes every sort of book and she seems to produce them in the way a rose bush produces flowers: effortlessly and beautifully and over and over again. There's something in her work for everyone. This book, like many modern teenage novels, is told in the first person. Sym's dad is dead, and she's out of step and out of sympathy with her contemporaries. They're all obsessed with make-up, boyfriends and magazine quizzes, but Sym is on another wavelength altogether.

Geraldine McCaughrean. The inspiration for this book was the tradition of carved Jesse trees and stained glass windows used in medieval times to tell people Bible stories. Rusti is a Mongol warrior, fighting for the bloodthirsty Tamburlaine, Conqueror of the World. until he comes face-to-face with his first elephant.

McCaughrean Geraldine. Captain Titus Oates, hero of the Antarctic, has been dead for nearly a century. But not in Sym& head.

I have been in love with Titus Oates for quite a while now—which is ridiculous, since he's been dead for ninety years. But look at it this way. In ninety years I'll be dead, too, and the age difference won't matter.

Sym is not your average teenage girl. She is obsessed with the Antarctic and the brave, romantic figure of Captain Oates from Scott's doomed expedition to the South Pole. In fact, Oates is the secret confidant to whom she spills all her hopes and fears.

But Sym's uncle Victor is even more obsessed—and when he takes her on a dream trip into the bleak Antarctic wilderness, it turns into a nightmarish struggle for survival that will challenge everything she knows and loves.

In her first contemporary young adult novel, Carnegie Medalist and three-time Whitbread Award winner Geraldine McCaughrean delivers a spellbinding journey into the frozen heart of darkness.
