The first thing I want to point out about this book is that it has a beautiful cover. Throughout the book there is a few more drawings that enhance the story in my opinion. They are all beautiful, and there isn’t too many of them so it doesn’t crowd the book.
The book is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen.” Hazel is a fifth grader who is dealing with a new school, and her parent’s recent divorce. She only has her imagination and her friend, Jack, to depend on until magic interferes. Then, well, you have the story.
I liked the feel of the story, and how it was written. Hazel is adorable and brave, and I don’t see how anyone could dislike her even if they don’t enjoy the story. One part I didn’t particularly like about this book is that it switches POV a couple times. Those chapters were always brief, and always added to the story that otherwise wouldn’t be revealed. It helped with the story, but it still wasn’t my favorite.
