Add in mean girls and bullies, a guy who makes her heart beat faster, and you find yourself in a typical modern high school situation. But, it's far from that. The young man has secrets of his own, including a sick mother and the ability to manipulate ice.
While I'm not a fan of first-person POV, this one worked well for the author since the characters definitely came across as typical teenagers, whose grammar isn't always 100%. In that respect, this was an excellent book.
However, there were issues that affected my overall appreciation of the novel. To be fair to the author, I will admit that I read the original version of the book, which has since been taken down and re-edtied. With this in mind, in the version I read, one with a blue cover, there was way too much sex and discussions surrounding sex etc, for a YA novel, typically designed to be read by the 12-17 year old. This maybe a prudish, old fashioned on my part, and I'm sure today's teenagers do engage in all kind of sexual behaviors, it simply isn't something I would want my twelve-year-old to read. In addition, she touches on serious mental health issues, without actually dealing with them. As well, these young people abuse alcohol, supplied by adults in one case, and that's another point I had difficulty with.
If you can accept those points as typical and normal of young teen behavior, then the book is better than okay, and you shouldn't let my personal bias affect your decision to read it. I look forward to Book two in the series because, as I mentioned first, the plot is excellent. .
Lyla is seventeen and about to get married which is the norm in her magical society, which is kept hidden from the human world. Abused by her step=father and sure that she doesn't want to be just another wife who reproduces to guarantee the legacy of their kind, Lyla decides to escape into the human world with only her necklace as a memento.
Once she is there, Lyla is sure that she will find what was missing from her life. But she will find so much more, as Lyla isn't the only person hiding in the human world, and she could now be in more danger than ever.
I enjoyed the premise of the story and it is definitely written in a style that suits the Young Adult/ New Adult genre, with plenty of action to keep you satisfied. There was just something missing for me and I didn't become invested in the story as much as I would have liked but I would definitely consider FROST ON MY PILLOW by Leah Hamrick a solid read for fans of the paranormal genre.
*I voluntarily reviewed this book from the author
