Description

The Wall Street Journal, January 25, 2014:
"A present-day fairy tale that practically sparkles with its own icy menace...[a] memorable and ultimately moving novel for young readers."

The Christian Science Monitor, January 31, 2014:
"Foxlee's novel will be read and loved by youngsters who've grown up on fairy tales, graduated to Harry Potter, and appreciate gorgeous writing and complex storytelling. In this story of friendship and yes, even bravery, Ophelia shines as one of the first true heroines of the 2014 crop of fabulous middle-grade novels."

Starred Review, Kirkus, November 1, 2013:
"A well-wrought, poignant and original reworking of Andersen's 'The Snow Queen.'"

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, November 11, 2013:
"Foxlee's writing is elegant and accessible, with a pervading melancholy... this story shines."

Starred Review, Booklist, December 15, 2013:
"This clever story-within-a-story reads easily yet offers deep lessons about trust, responsibility, and friendship."

Starred Review, The Bulletin, February 1, 2014:

"Foxlee inventively weaves familiar folkloric elements--an evil snow queen, a magic sword, a quest, a chosen one--into her modern setting, all the while evoking a mood of dreamlike foreboding."

Starred Review, School Library Journal, March 1, 2014:
"The writing sparkles . . . Foxlee's fresh and imaginative take on this classic tale will be snapped up by fantasy and adventure lovers alike."

The Horn Book, January/February 2014:
"Foxlee's deftness with characterization and setting...makes this a satisfying fantasy."
