An unearthly howl made her quiver all over, inside and out . . .

Zoe had never let being in a wheelchair stop her from doing what she wanted. So, when her parents decided to move to a remote town in north Canada, it sounded like a real adventure. But now that she's here, Zoe's not so sure. The snow makes getting around difficult. All the other kids at school are into snow sports and Zoe can't join in. And, to make matters even worse, the town is full of unpredictable wild dogs. It would be hard to defend yourself from a dog attack in a wheelchair . . .
