Sintesi dell'editore

Great beauty hides dark secrets....

Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she's sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn't changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception - the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost.

Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can't deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia's wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.

Can Anastasia and Frost's love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?

Twilight Fans - This Book Will Fill the Void!

Frostbitten is a compelling young adult novel that is reminiscent of the Twilight series with an angsty teenage girl falling for a bad boy loner who holds a deep secret. At the same time, Frostbitten reminds me a little of Divergent with the town people's prejudice parading around under the guise of protection.

Written by Heather Beck, this story begins when 17-year-old Anastasia is sent from metropolitan Toronto to live with her grandparents in rural Cedar Falls, a place where she spent summers as a child. Despite being likeable and well-intentioned, Anastasia's bad reputation follows her to Cedar Falls and she is not given a much desired fresh start. To make matters worse, she is inextricably drawn to the only boy deemed "off limits" by her grandfather. Frost is kind-hearted and likeable, but he has a big chip on his shoulder due to being abandoned as a baby. The rest of the story follows Frost and Anastasia as they runaway from home in search of his birth parents and how they react once they find them.

I listened to the Audible version of Frostbitten narrated by Angela Rose Masi who did an admirable job providing differing voices for the characters. I'm very much looking forward to listening to more books in this series as there are a few unanswered questions that I'm just dying to know the answers too!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No

Any additional comments?

I think thdon’t story started off very slow. While the book was good, I found myself rolling my eyes at the immaturity of the main character. I didn’t like her much. The romance was mediocre at best.

High School Bites

A troubled girl looking to start over in a new town, what could go wrong? Being in high school, having to deal with bullies, gossips, social hierarchy, and catching up in class can be stressful. Add in a sordid past, the various reputations of family and friends, and a boy that everybody says is trouble, and what could possibly go wrong?

If you like young adult romances that combine the forbidden aspects of 'Romeo and Juliet' with the high school angst and not quite normal twists of 'Twilight' then this is a book you will enjoy. Additionally, the story branches out beyond te high school elements, so that theme does not dominate the entire book. The narrator can be viewed as good or bad depending on your point of view, because although she can sound quite studious and intelligent, she can also sound on the verge of a temperamental explosion, a fear based meltdown, or a good cry.

Normally high school dramas are not something I tend to enjoy, but this book has enough unexpected twists and mysterious turns to keep the audience hooked and listening. I found the romance elements to be a little bit too easy personally, but still not blatantly overdone. Also the ending leaves a few things unresolved which makes the audience want to come back for more.
