Very seldom does a book send chills down my spine, but this amazing book managed it multiple times! I am reccomending this book to anyone who will listen and reading every other book from this author.
Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell is a perfect October read. The prologue creates a creepy feeling and, when the story opens with two friends and a ouija board, it seems a little more lighthearted until the foreshadowing leads to dread and tragedy. At that point, I was pulled into the book and couldn’t put it down. Sophie travels to Scotland to visit relatives and to learn about how her cousin Rebecca died. Strange things are happening at Sophie’s cousins’ home and she wants to figure it all out. Sophie gets closer to the spooky happenings while her cousins act more and more strangely. The twists and revelations are fascinatingly spooky! 5 stars for this young adult horror story!
Ouija boards, ghosts and antique porcelain dolls. I'm not sure more needs to be said. But, I will go on. Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell is a chilling tale that should be read on a cold and stormy fall night. It's a perfect October read. I received this copy of Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
