    I though that it was not to good. It starts with a young kid and his dad move to the frozen wasteland in canada. The kid makes a eskimo friend. The dad looks for red cooper in a blizzard then is gone for a while but don't worry. The dad's son and his friend are looking for him and the pilot in the deadly cold. You have to read the book to figure out what happens next.

    A great book

    I think Frozen Fire is a great book. I enjoy it very much. The book is a memorable book. This book is full of action and suspenseful. It is really amazing how Matthew and Kayak together went to find Matthew's father, when Matthew's father went to find copper in a bad weather and went missing. The book is full of friendship, father and son relationship. If you are a person who like action then this is the book.

    FROZEN FIRE, WHAT I THOUGHT

    I read the book ¿frozen fire¿ I thought it was great. Theme: The theme is that helping each other is half the battle, because in the book helping each other got as hard as survival. Summery: Matthew moves all the time, then the moves to Canada and meets an Eskimo named Kayak, but when Matthew¿s father gets lost in the cold snow due to a storm. Then Matthew and Kayak are on their way through the danger and adventure of Canada¿s artic. Review: This book is really good. It was a book that I liked because it wasn¿t a hard book to read it was easy to comprehend. This was one of the only books that I couldn¿t put down. It was so suspenseful and I just needed to know what happened. This book deals with some problems people have to face, like friendship, and moving. But what made it memorable was the things that aren¿t so common¿. adventure. This book also teaches you survival, and it makes it fascinating about what you can do when your life depends on it. I would recommend this to almost everyone, every reading level can read this and it is easy to comprehend. I think this is one of the best books I¿ve ever read.

    This book is so good. It starts out with a kid named Mathew moving to Alaska. He meets an eskimo named Kayak and they become very good friends. Mathew's dad goes out and looks for the copper that he is so confident that is there during a snow blizzard and gets lost. They never find him and they have to turn back. When they get back his dad is in the hospital and okay. This is a great book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good adventure.

    Frozen Fire!!!!

    I thought this book was a huge thriller and it was very detailed and creative. It was also based on a true story which was very interesting. The book Frozen Fire is one great book for many reasons. It was very entertaining because of the detailed parts and the exciting parts. I felt very excited when I was reading this because it has a lot of action in it. This book changed the way I think of how to survive when out in the wild and stranded. It also made me think different on staying strong because of the amazing and hopeful parts. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and family because of the amazing lessons and exciting parts in it. I wouldn't recommend this book to people who don't like sad or survival stories. This book has not only just taught me ways to survive in the wild while stranded but it has also taught me to not give up on hope and to keep looking for what you're looking for!

    In my opinion, Frozen Fire is the greatest book I've read this year, and there have been many books I've really enjoyed. It's suspenseful, touching, and full of action all at the same time. The plot is also very amazing with Matthew and his father's relationship, along with the hardships they face. Someone I know who read it said it was boring and nothing exciting happened, but I would have to strongly disagree with that. If you're a person who enjoys action and adventure, this is the book for you!

    AMAZING

    I was impressed by this book because of everything that happened. Matthew and his father go to Alaska and meet lots of Eskimos. But when his father disappears, Kayak and Matthew go out and search for him. Will they find him or be lost forever? This was an amazing book and very exciting! I thought that it was very entertaining and full of suspense because Matthew and Kayak go on a blinding snow adventure. I felt relaxed and surprised since some parts were moving along fine and then they could be surprised, by an unwanted visitor. This book really tells that you should never give up in the darkest times. I thought of this because Matthew and Kayak are stuck in a white windy wilderness and keep going forward and do not turn back. I would recommend this book if you enjoy the suspense and are looking for a good read. I really enjoyed this book and hope you will too!

    I read Frozen Fire by James Houston. This wasn¿t one of the best books I have read. I thought it could be a little better. This was one of the books that I did not find interesting, because to me there were no exciting parts it just seemed like every bad and good thing that happened wasn¿t exciting. This book didn¿t really affect me but to some people I know it would. Frozen Fire didn¿t change the way I think about anything. I didn¿t find it entertaining either. I mean some parts were good but just the book seemed pointless to me. I did find sometimes feel sad in the book just because if your dad was missing you would be worried or scared or something like that. That¿s why I felt sad during the book. I would not recommend this book. And to me it wasn¿t that realistic either, because if you were out in the cold like that for several days with a little food and water you would most likely die. This is why I didn¿t think it was a good book.

    Amazing

    I think Frozen Fire gets a 5/5 2 thumbs up! My one word to describe it is suspenseful. It was one of the most interesting books I ever read.It also was a very memorable book. It will have you to the edge of your seat to the very end. The book honestly changed my look at Canada and fling. A short summary of the begging is. A young kid and his dad move to Canada so they wont have to pay taxes. The dad flies to find copper during a storm, and when missing. The kid matt(for short) and his friend kayak look for him. I could tell you the rest but you should read this great book then you will figure out is is alive and who is not!

    A Perilous Journey

    This book is a captivating adventure story that portrays the best of both worlds - The Inuit and white - and the desperate journey. The harsh reality of an environment where one small mistake can mean death.
