Determined to meet him, Owl delves into Jack’s wonderful world of winter and magic—the kind of place she thought only existed in fairy tales.

    E ARC from EdelweissEnjoyed, but probably won't buy because I don't have a lot of fantasy readers. This is the strongest contender for one I might purchase. It starts in the "real" world, has a few friend and family problems, and has a fairy/folk tale connection. Still, the same can be said of Houts' Winterfrost, Prineas' Winterling, Constable's The Wolf Princess. or Rudnick's A Frozen Heart, none of which have been circulating very well.

    (Review of digital ARC from EdelweissPlus) This librarian of 4th/5th graders will definitely be buying this book for at least one of her libraries! Fantasy is my genre and while I generally lean more towards dragons and darker magic, this piece of fantasy was outstanding.

Fantasy is my genre and while I generally lean more towards dragons and darker magic, this piece of fantasy was outstanding. What a great concept-- Jack Frost and the North Wind battling with the Queen of May and the Earl of October with the Lady of the Lake trying to stay out of the ruckus and Mother Earth having to step in to reestablish the harmony of nature. And then on top of all that Wilson throws in a great cast of humans and part humans to royally stir things up as Owl, child of a human and Jack Frost, and Avery, whose parentage I won't mention, struggle with power that they don't understand. And along with the great magic of nature's "elementals," there are normal things like school, poor Algebra grades, parents separating, friendships going awry...This is book that I know my 5th grade girls will love and if the guys can get over the main character being female, they will also enjoy it. Parents, teachers, and librarians will love the word choices used by Wilson and her vivid descriptions of nature's beauty and its fury. I don't know where another book would take us, but if Amy Wilson writes another about Owl, Avery, and Mallory, I'll read it. But regardless, after reading The Lost Frost Girl, I will be watching for anything else that she writes!
