A delightful first novel by Pierre Szalowski. Set in Montreal, the narrator is an 11 year old boy whose parents tell him that they are separating. In despair he appeals to the sky for help, and lo-and-behold the weather changes. An ice-storm engulfs the whole region. The ensuing lack of electric power, and the shut down of whole areas of the city have a profound affect on his friends, neighbours and ultimately his parents. One of his neighbours is a young Russian conducting a complex series of observations on the movements of fish as part of his PhD thesis - as he observes, fish change direction in cold weather- and so it seems do people.

Book description
When his parents split up, and his dad leaves home, a ten-year-old boy begs the sky to help him. The next day an ice storm covers his city. When the power goes out and the temperature drops, people must turn to each other to survive. 

But for one neighbourhood the catastrophe brings surprising new beginnings. Julie, the dancer who lives across the street, helps Boris, an eccentric Russian mathematician, save his fish from the cold weather. And the urbane Michel and Simon open their door to Alexis, their embittered neighbour, and his son. But will the ice storm bring the boy's parents back together?
