"Frozen" by Marry Casanova was a very good historical fiction novel. I found
in this read the heroine Sadie Rose was a protagonist...who was finding her
voice and on to who she really is. "The story begins with Sadie Rose, a 15 year
old girl, who does not speak and only has slight memories of her past before
she was found in a snow storm. Everything changes for Sadie Rose when she
discovers hidden photos of her Mother. Soon enough, the "thaw," on Sadie
Rose begins." We will see Sadie Rose growing into her own discovering how to be independent at this time in the 1920's. In the read we are able to see the have and the have knot's of the people...even the political issues of the day. This story "isn't just a story about a girl finding herself, it's also an opportunity to see the beginning of a great era." Now, this will be the time that I say you must pick up "Frozen" to see what all this author has instore for the readers in the 'underlying mystery.'

I thought "Frozen" was a quick read for any YA wanting to expore a historical
fiction read. Would I recommend this novel? YES!
