Operation Arctic / Grethe Bøe-Waal

13 year old Julia and her twin siblings, 8 year old Ida and Sindre, have ended up on the deserted Half Moon island by a tragic mistake. No one knows where they are. They have to conquer fear and dangerous situations: wild animals, raging weather, lack of food and how to communicate with the mainland. But they are quickly learning something all children love: How to master challenges. A modern day Robinson Crusoe adventure set in the Arctic.
