Left Me Cold
Camp Zero by Michelle Min Sterling
Climate change is marching everyone further north, where untapped resources and years-old secrets are to be found in the retreating snow. Rose is there to spy on the deluded man who thinks he's building a campus. Grant has come to teach the men known as the Diggers and shed the shackles of his family name. But there are more agendas in Camp Zero than most people realise.
This had a great premise and a great start, but the story soon became sluggish and didn't recover. Things only got interesting towards the end...which of course was when the book abruptly ran out of pages! I'd have preferred more plot over the extra POVs. And not all of those POVs seemed necessary to me. Lately I've had the misfortune to buy books that read like drafts. This is one of them.
