Frost by Marianna Baer
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 love the blending of the supernatural with the psychological in this novel. It's impossible to predict what path the book will take, and I'm so ready for some unpredictability! It sounds so dark on so many levels. I'm also intrigued by the triangle between Leena, Celeste and Celeste's brother. What kind of triangle? A love triangle? Because that would bring in so many complex issues to explore. Frost sounds mind-bending, and I cannot wait! I especially love the last line of the synopsis -- it's what really sold me: "As to whether the demons are supernatural or psychological...well, which answer would let you sleep at night?"
What do you guys think? Does this sound like your kind of read? What upcoming release are you waiting for this week?
