    (Review of digital ARC from EdelweissPlus) This librarian of 4th/5th graders will definitely be buying this book for at least one of her libraries! Fantasy is my genre and while I generally lean more towards dragons and darker magic, this piece of fantasy was outstanding. What a great concept-- Jack Frost and the North Wind battling with the Queen of May and the Earl of October with the Lady of the Lake trying to stay out of the ruckus and Mother Earth having to step in to reestablish the harmony of nature. And then on top of all that Wilson throws in a great cast of humans and part humans to royally stir things up as Owl, child of a human and Jack Frost, and Avery, whose parentage I won't mention, struggle with power that they don't understand. And along with the great magic of nature's "elementals," there are normal things like school, poor Algebra grades, parents separating, friendships going awry...This is book that I know my 5th grade girls will love and if the guys can get over the main character being female, they will also enjoy it. Parents, teachers, and librarians will love the word choices used by Wilson and her vivid descriptions of nature's beauty and its fury. I don't know where another book would take us, but if Amy Wilson writes another about Owl, Avery, and Mallory, I'll read it. But regardless, after reading The Lost Frost Girl, I will be watching for anything else that she writes!

    Fun fantasy story about Jack Frost and his daughter.

    Owl has always wondered about her father. Her mother has been telling her bedtime stories for years and Owl always assumed they were made up. When a boy at school starts looking at her strangely and Owl starts to notice frost particles appearing around her, she becomes a little worried.

    Enjoyed, but probably won't buy because I don't have a lot of fantasy readers. This is the strongest contender for one I might purchase. It starts in the "real" world, has a few friend and family problems, and has a fairy/folk tale connection. Still, the same can be said of Houts' Winterfrost, Prineas' Winterling, Constable's The Wolf Princess. or Rudnick's A Frozen Heart, none of which have been circulating very well.

    Really disappointing. It has a wonderful premise, but it is overflowing with problems. I'll be back with specifics, it's too early in the morning to be analytical. Ha ha.

    Pros-

    A cute, well-written, entertaining story perfect for tween audiences looking for a fantasy read. The story is original and interesting. It's a nice light read for older audiences as well. I love the name "Owl" and thought the story had some nice twists.

    Cons-

    Though the book is original as a whole, there are elements of the story similar to other fairy tales and children's stories.

    I would rate it 4.6-4.7

    My copy of this book was obtained from a Goodreads giveaway.

    This is a wonderful story about family and friendship. There are lots of likable characters and some despicable ones too. There is also a very well thought out plot that has a nice juxtaposition between their real lives and the magical one. I really like hos the author took the mythology behind the Jack Frost character and developed a world around it.

    Owl is an interesting character. She is desperate to know who her real father is, but her mother is always a bit vague about it. Her mother does tell her stories about Jack Frost, but Owl never makes the connection. I really liked Owl’s abilities, although I would have liked her to freak out maybe a little bit more when they start to manifest. She was just a bit too calm when frost starts to grow on her skin. But I did like the wonder and amazement that she showed as her powers grew. Owl is also pretty brave and resourceful. She makes for a good role model even when she has doubts about herself. I also enjoyed Owl’s friend Mallory, who even though was having family issues of her own was willing to be their to help Owl through hers. I really liked Avery, the mysterious new boy in school. I would definitely like to see a story from his point of view.

    The plot was interesting, and well paced. I especially liked that it didn’t just jump into the magical world, but let us get to know the characters in the real world first. There are some chapters about what happened to Owl’s mother and how she met Jack that are interspersed throughout that were a bit confusing at first, until I figured out it was Owl’s mom’s story.

    I think this is meant to be a stand alone story, and I don’t think a sequel about Owl and Jack Frost is necessary, but I would love to see one involving Avery and maybe some of the other characters. This was a great magical world that the author has built here and I would like to see more.
