A powerful, twisty, contemporary reimagining of The Snow Queen - with a heroine destined for acts of icy darkness, to become a villain, a queen and ultimately a hero. A gorgeously dark and grown-up Frozen
Seventeen-year-old Snow lives within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she doesn't belong there, but she has no memory of life outside, except for the strangest dreams. And then a mysterious, handsome man, an orderly in the hospital, opens a door - and Snow knows that she has to leave .
She finds herself in icy Algid, her true home, with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she's destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change everything. Heroine or villain, queen or broken girl, frozen heart or true love, Snow must choose her fate .
A wonderfully icy fantastical romance, with a strong heroine choosing her own destiny, Danielle Paige's irresistibly page-turning Snow Queen is like Maleficent and Frozen all grown up.

Comments about Stealing Snow:
It took me a while to get into this book. I had trouble engaging with the story and the characters. However, by the end I was enjoying it and can see Stealing Snow being made into a movie. Of course, it has also been set up for the next book in the series to follow on. Being aware that it is written for the young adult market, the language was still a bit simplistic at times in the narrative. Overall though, an enjoyable story.
