An interesting concept I would like 3.5-4 out of 5 stars
A creative story line that made me think “Girl Interrupted” meets “Frozen” or “The Snow Queen”. The story starts in a mental asylum, where the protagonist, 17 year old Snow, believes she’s a menace to herself and possibly others however she slowly learns that it may not be a mental instability she is suffering but a power she possesses that’s being suppressed by those who are responsible for her. Trapped in the walls of Whittaker Institute, day by day Snow just feels she really does not belong there – she’s experiencing strange dreams and mysterious unexplainable events until one night, an orderly comes to her with an opportunity for self discovery and she has to decide whether to stay in this high security mental asylum or embark on a new adventure that could be the key to her life and possible gifts.
The prologue captured my attention very quickly and as the story commenced, it was intriguing however I found part way through the plot appeared to be put on pause as Snow was going through her self discovery. Although I read mixed reviews on this book, I personally didn’t think it was a bad read at all. The mystery of who she is and other characters she meets keeps you turning the page.
This book is now available in stores.. Many thanks to Bloomsbury Publishers for sending me an Advance Review Copy in exchange for my honest review.
