Description


Taking inspiration from “Beauty and the Beast,” Amy Wilson’s second middle grade novel is a stunning modern fairy tale of magic, friendship, and finding the courage to fight for what matters most.

After the death of her parents, Angel has a lot to get used to: a new home, a new family, a new school. The last thing she’s interested in is making new friends. Until she meets Bavar, a strange boy who slips through the shadows, a boy who might understand her nightmares.

But Bavar doesn’t want to let anyone in. Everyone—and everything—in his enchanted house is already urging him to step up and protect the world from a magical rift and the fearsome monsters traveling through it, a responsibility he wishes he could ignore.

Then Bavar discovers that the monsters are the same ones that killed Angel’s parents. Determined to stop the creatures for good, he reluctantly accepts Angel’s help. Together, Angel and Bavar must find the courage to stand up for each other and themselves to repair the rift between worlds…before it’s too late.

Praise For…


“The sympathetic Angel and Bavar both deal with life-shattering tragedy, but Wilson’s story is full of hope and spirit. An imaginative story about magic, friendship, and healing.”
— Booklist

“A solid friendship tale for fans of eerie fantasy.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Wilson uses spare prose and distinct voices for Angel and Bavar as the protagonists struggle with personal tragedy, family issues, and ethical considerations. Recommended for readers who enjoy Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls.”
 

— School Library Journal

Praise for The Lost Frost Girl:
“A fantastical, frost-filled, coming-of-age debut.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Similar to Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, Wilson’s debut nicely blends reality and fantasy into an entertaining read. Wilson brings the fairy tale individuals to life while maintaining a delightful combination of realism and fantasy. A promising first novel.”
— Booklist

“This character-driven fantasy exhibits a nice balance between Owl’s magical adventures and her human struggles with friendship and school. Purchase where fantasy flies off the shelves.”
— School Library Journal

“As magical as frost itself, The Lost Frost Girl is a truly special tale, told with gorgeous prose and filled with compelling characters. I absolutely loved it!”
— Sarah Beth Durst, author of Journey Across the Hidden Islands

“Charming, clever, and enchanting, The Lost Frost Girl is a modern fairy tale about discovering yourself and the place you truly belong.”
— Kristin Bailey, author of The Silver Gate
