Fourteen books about the Arctic and Antarctica

At Read It Forward, Abbe Wright tagged fourteen top books about the Arctic and Antarctica, including:
Up to This Pointe by Jennifer Longo

Harper Scott's name earns her immediate respect in Antarctic circles--after all, she's related to the famed explorer Robert Falcon Scott. But it's ballet, rather than Antarctica, that consumes the teenager's life. But when things don't go according to plan, Harper decides she needs some time away from the world and worms her way into a spot at McMurdo Station. It's an unlikely premise, to be sure, but Longo makes it work with her emotional prose and vivid descriptions of Antarctic life.
