A 14-year-old girl fears that she is losing her sight to Stargardt's Disease, as her sister did. Despite her sight impairment, she enters a dogsled race that follows the historic Canadian dogsled mail along Lake Superior, with unexpected results. Publication is planned for fall 2019; Caryn Wiseman at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency brokered the deal for world rights.
