Antarctica: Escape from Disaster by Peter Lerangis

Trapped in Antarctic ice, Jack Winslow and his sons fight to get home

It has been nearly a year since Jack Winslow and his two sons, Colin and Andrew, set out to conquer Antarctica. While Colin and most of the crew stayed behind on the ship, Andrew made a dash for the South Pole, nearly dying in the process. When he returns to the Mystery, frostbitten and frail, the ship has become wedged between two ice floes. As the crew hacks at the ice with pick-axes, trying desperately to free the ship, the ice shifts, shattering the hull and giving the Winslows and their team just enough time to gather provisions before the Mystery plummets into the frigid water. Hundreds of miles of ice and sea stand between the Winslows and safety. As food becomes scarce, the crew begins grumbling of mutiny. Colin and Andrew are tired, hungry, and freezing cold—but their struggle for survival has only just begun. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Lerangis including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

About the Author

Peter Lerangis (b. 1955) is a bestselling author of middle-grade and young-adult fiction whose novels have sold more than four million copies worldwide. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Lerangis was working in musical theater when he began editing fiction, which eventually led to writing novels of his own. He got his start writing novelizations under the pen name A. L. Singer, as well as installments of long-running series such as the Hardy Boysand the Baby-sitters Club. Lerangis began publishing under his own name with 1994’s The Yearbook and Driver’s Dead. In 1998 Lerangis introduced Watchers, a six-novel sci-fi series that won Children’s Choice and Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers awards and led to an invitation to dine with the President of Russia at the White House. His other work includes the Abracadabra novels; the Spy X series; Drama Club, a four-book series about high-school theater based on his own Broadway experiences; and exactly three and a quarter books in the New York Times–bestselling 39 Clues series. He lives with his family in New York City, not far from Central Park.
