I decided that I had to read this book right away after seeing Frozen. I'm obsessed with that movie and I listen to "Let it Go" on a daily basis. Not kidding. I also read too much Jelsa FanFic. I have a problem. Not gonna even try to deny it at all. I also want to say that the girl on the cover is...

2.5 stars. Retelling of "The Snow Queen." I only liked Dierde as a character. I loved her story and was pleasantly surprised at her characterization. I loved that she was not a villain.

I think I've pinpointed why Dokey and this series in general do not work for me. It's just the low quality of the writing and plotting, which is disappointingly lowest-common-denominator-tween-cliche. It's not primarily the tendency to eviscerate the source material, although that does bother me, es...

An interesting retelling of "The Snow Queen", and I really liked that Dokey made her a heroine rather than the villainness and gave a reason for why she was what she was, which never made any sense in the original.
