Publisher's Summary

Crystal Frost tells herself she isn't crazy, but sane people don't see ghosts. As her psychic abilities manifest, Crystal discovers there's a much bigger story behind her mother's Halloween-themed shop than she ever realized. Now blessed with the ability to see into the future, witness the past, and speak with the dead, Crystal must use these tools to save those who have come to her for help.
But that's not an easy task between learning how to use her abilities, trying to hide them, and uncovering the secrets her loved ones have been keeping from her. Add blackmail to the list of things Crystal never thought would happen to her, and you basically have her sophomore year covered. Will she learn to control her abilities in time, or will the whole school learn of her secret before she's ready to reveal it?

A different coming of age story

Fire in Frost is a different coming of age story. We meet Crystal Frost, a young girl just trying to navigate through high school unscathed. Crystal is getting ready for one of her last volleyball games when she sees something that is just not possible. On top of that, she actually has a physical reaction because of it! No one else has the same experience and she ends up putting herself in a bad situation with her friends and some of her classmates.
Crystal then learns that there is more to this experience from her mom, and she is now set on a new life path forever. Has she learned enough fast enough to make a difference?
I love the narration, Kim Reiko is able to capture the essence of Crystal and her struggle though all of the changes in her life.
Crystal has a lot to learn about her gift and he also has a lot to learn about who to trust! Fire in Frost is a very interesting and engaging story. I am excited to see where her gifts take her!

Yes. Crystal Frost is a likable character and the narration is excellent.


Any additional comments?

Crystal Frost may not be the most popular, or the most confident sophomore in school. In fact she may be going insane. She keeps seeing Olivia Owen, which wouldn’t be unusual except that Olivia died last year. When her mother tells her the truth about what really goes on in her divination shop, Crystal realizes that seeing dead people may be part of her gift. Now she has to decide if she can trust anyone with her secret.

Emma is Crystal’s best friend. Hey, if you can’t trust your best friend…? The bad news is, Emma wasn’t so quick to believe her friend had any special abilities, other than being a little crazy, which is to be expected. The worse news is, someone overheard. Someone who she would never trust with this big of a secret. Crystal’s life is about to get more complicated as she’s drawn by her inner compulsion to help those in need.

Alicia Rades delves into the world of teens dealing with difficult topics, including physical abuse. Crystal, the main character, learns who she is as she discovers her abilities and decides to use whatever she can to help the people around her. In this first book of the series she grows physically and emotionally as she navigates her new world.

I listened to this book on audio and found the narrator, Kim Reiko a joy to listen to.

Enticing YA fiction with an excellent mix of paranormal and real life.
