Troubling a Star

by L'Engle, Madeleine

Troubling a Star is the last full length novel in the Austin family series by Madeleine L'Engle. The young adult suspense thriller, published in 1994, reunites L'Engle's most frequent protagonist, Vicky Austin, with Adam Eddington, both of whom become enmeshed in international intrigue as they travel separately to Antarctica. The story takes place several months after the end of A Ring of Endless Light, the novel in which Vicky and Adam first met.

On Dec 7, 2004, Shipping_Diva said:
One of a series of books about Vicky Austin and her family, this is a great adventure novel for young readers. Based on the author's real-life adventures, my students truly enjoy reading stories that place them in unreachable places and destinations. "After a year in New York City, Vicky Austin feels restless and totally out of place back home in rural Connecticut. When Adam's great-aunt Serena gives Vicky a trip to Antarctica as a birthday present, Vicky can't believe her luck. It's the opportunity of a lifetime, and Adam will be working at one of the research stations there. But the trip is not what Vicky imagined. As she meets her fellow travelers, it quickly becomes clear that some of them are not what they seem. And that her trip into adventure is becoming a journey into icy danger." By the author of A Wrinkle in Time. For ages 9-14.
