Athena, now nineteen and keen to leave the rat hole behind, has traveled all the way to Alaska in the hope of a better life up north. What she doesn’t bank on is the massive culture shock that being a Greek-American in the icebox means, from experiencing the horrors of Eskimo ice cream to meeting Bambi- killers, hunters, and trappers galore.
 
Told with raw honesty and emotional vulnerability, this true coming of age story recounts Athena’s struggle to fit in as she is surrounded by strange psychic energies, dangerous people, and food like she’s never experienced before. The fascinating world of restaurants and serving is explored in every hilarious and horrifying detail, with a cast of colorful characters from all walks of life, but not all of them are out to help Athena on her quest to build a brighter future for herself.
 
Even when Athena thinks she’s found new friends and a surrogate mother to give her the support she’s never had, a dark presence still looms on the horizon. Up north is a dangerous place for a young lady alone. Something bad is coming, and Athena can feel it. Can she survive the harsh winters and even harsher life lessons that being in the icebox will throw at her?
