My eight-year-old and I have difficulty finding books in which girl protagonists are interesting and not 'boy crazy.' This book depicts a girl who is determined and intelligent, but not so perfect as to be a caricature. Her Iditerod adventure is very exciting, and her fellow characters are well developed. The story addresses tensions between Eskimo and white cultures, but this theme adds to the book's complexity without being preachy or heavy-handed. We really enjoyed the book!

This book was okay and the best part about this book is that the protagonist was a teenage girl. The most interesting part of this book was when she got stuck on the chunk of ice. I recommend this book because you don't read many books with female protagonist.

Black Star, Bright Dawn was my students' second read-aloud this school year. My students who live in southwest Louisiana were not altogether familiar with the setting of the story, but through classroom discussion and mini geography lessons they came to have an appreciation for this part of our country. They also learned how important it is to show sportsmanship in whatever we do. It's not always so important that we win the race as it that we finish.

I liked this book because it was very interesting to read. Bright Dawn has a mind of her own. She is very talanted at the races. It pleased me to know that her father said he wanted her to run the 300 mile race. Black Star has a mind of his own too. In the book Bright Dawnis stuck on a ice burg with little food and water, out of five days it is three days that she lives without food. then after awhile a plane drops food and a note that says 'Help is on the way'. Then that night her father comes to rescue her and the dogs. So her father puts her, the sled, and seven dogs on boat hten raelly only big enough for two full grown men. Bright Dawn is tired and says that she is finished with the race. But her father says 'You're not finished until yopu cross the finish line.

I was really disappointed in this book. O'Dell's books are usually interesting, but this one barely kept me reading it. It had some really good descriptions, though, but I didn't really understand them.
