More YA - Heart of Dread: Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz, Michael Johnston

October is turning into a good month for YA novels. Maybe it’s the shorter days, or the bleak skies, or the knowledge of the winter to come, but something always makes me turn back to my childhood favorites to cheer me up (rereading Diana Wynne Jones’s entire collection of written work, anyone?) But I think it’s good to also branch out and see what the Youth of Today are reading (or at least could potentially be reading.) 532 more words
