Ice by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

Can the truth thaw Chrissa's frozen heart?
It's been three years since Chrissa's father walked out of her life. Too angry even to speak to her mother, Chrissa is obsessed with finding the answers to her questions: Why did her father leave? Why does she never hear from him? And is it somehow her fault, for not being the daughter he wanted her to be?
Now, unable to deal with Chrissa's silence, her mother has sent her away from New York City home to spend a year in the country with her grandmother. Perhaps in Gram's house, in the rural community which her father grew up, Chrissa will discover the secret of his disappearance.
Instead, Chrissa finds more secrets and suspicions. And, surprisingly, she finds strength she never knew she had. Strength she will need when she must confront the most devastating secret of all.

This is a very unique book. Like Many other of Reynold's book's, it is the tale of a young person. I found this book pretty good. It is very suspense filled, but not really the type of book i like. I dont really remember much about it because i read it 3 years ago. Overall i would give it a 7 in a scale of 1- 10. 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest.

This book holds much suspense. And unlike other books, It's not boring in the beginning. Much related to Me. Except I've never lived with my grandparents.(u can email me if u like!)

This was such a good book and has many cliffhangers to keep you wondering what will happen next. I loved this book a lot and never stopped reading it! The beginning was kind of boring but it's still a very good book.

i loved the book Ice, exspecially the suspense it holds. I read it in my spare time AND for a book report, and i sat at the end of my seat both times i read it. I'd definately recomend it to anyone who asks about it.

Ice is a good book that has a good plot, action, an interesting heroine, and a little romance added.

If you love a good book, read this one. It's about a girl who struggles with her identity because of her dad who left her at a very young age. I am an avid reader and this is one of my all time favorite books. Any ages between 9-14 will enjoy this book.

Ice is a wonderful name for this book, because in the beginning Chrissa couldn't put any of her feelings into words. They hung like icicles in her throat. Chrissa and her mother didn't communicate after her father left them, so her mother sends Chrissa to live with her grandmother. There Chrissa meets a life she's never known before. She finally starts to know the meaning of fun out. Throughout the book Chrissa is trying to find her father and if he is still alive or dead. This is an excellent book that's very true to life and is an easy read. Even though the first part of the book is where Chrissa is a little depressed. It's so fun to see how every little thing helps her to open her eyes. This book is an outstanding read!
