imageTitle: Frost
Author: Marianna Baer
Publisher: Balzer & Bray (Harper Collins)
Release Date: September 13, 2011
Received From: Publisher in return for a honest review

Leena Thomas’s senior year at boarding school begins with a shock: Frost House, her cozy dorm of close friends, has been assigned an unexpected roommate: confrontational, eccentric Celeste Lazar. But while Leena’s anxiety about a threat to her sanctuary proves valid, it becomes less and less clear whether the threat lies with her new roommate, within Leena’s own mind, or within the very nature of Frost House itself. Mysterious happenings in the dorm, an intense triangle between Leena, Celeste, and Celeste’s brother, and the reawakening of childhood fears, all push Leena to take increasingly desperate measures to feel safe. Frost is the story of a haunting. As to whether the demons are supernatural or psychological . . . well, which answer would let you sleep at night?


I received this book right before i went to college. I found this ironic because while I am living in a huge dorm, the whole living with different people and the oddness of living in an old building I could totally relate to. Also I was hoping that my dorm was nothing like Frost House. (It’s not Smile)

This book was creepy, but not overly, I mean if you stopped and thought about what was going on then yeah, but if you just read through it, it’s not scary till the end. (But I’m a huge wimp so take that into account.) It was mostly creepy, like creepy beyond all reason.

The only problem I had with this book was Leena. She was aggravating and dull, in my opinion she had some serious issues that while addressed a little in the book should have been elaborated on. Also it seemed like some of the stuff she did that was wrong she wasn’t called out for enough, like maybe it was mentioned but I feel like it should have been a bigger part of the story.

So basically I liked the plot but the characters with the exception of David who I loved. I did enjoy it but I just couldn't get past Leena.

If you want a creepy book for the Halloween season and don’t mind putting up with Leena then I totally recommend this book!
