Kitty Hawk has been flying planes with her dad in Tofino, Canada ever since she was little. When she finally graduates from high school she wants to go on a research trip to Alaska to study humpback whales. While she was studying the whales she notices a suspicious fish boat. Earlier that summer there had been a report of missing gold in the area. When Kitty's curiosity gets the best of her she goes out to investigate; she finds that four men have indeed stolen the gold that she had heard about earlier. But when she was eavesdropping on their conversation one of the men find her and they end up kidnapping her and using her to help take their gold across the Alaskan border. But while on this trek to hide the gold she makes some unexpected friends.

I likes that it was about a confident brave girl doing things that you wouldn't really expect from a girl. What I didn't like was that the author made the book too descriptive. He kept on telling every little detail in it that could have been left out of the book. He also made the book just keep going on, because when you thought that it was wrapping up and about to finish something else would happen which made the book really long.
