Dunvegan School for Girls has been closed for many years. Converted into a family home, the teachers and students are long gone. But they left something behind… Sophie arrives at the old schoolhouse to spend the summer with her cousins. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lillias with a fear of bones and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true. And then there’s her other cousin. The girl with a room full of antique dolls. The girl that shouldn’t be there. The girl that died.

Frozen Charlotte is a book like no other. Literally. It's very rare to find YA Horror, but Alex Bell has delivered something that I think could contender with Queen of Teen Champion, James Dawson.
When the post man handed over this parcel and I ripped it open, I knew I had to start it there and then. I ran upstairs, turned off the lights and read, read, read. I couldn't put it down. I was introduced to the (if I say so myself) generic dark creepy house that's in any horror movie/book, but the truth was, that made me love it so much more. I felt like I was at the cinemas watching a premiere to a new movie.
The writing is brilliant, the pacing was non-stop and I swear I got chills down my arms on way too many occasions and my book now has tea spills from one specific scene that creeped me the hell out.
However, I must also say that I'm not someone who's scared. Maybe that's because I have a weird personality and have dreamed to see a live exorcist since I was six years old. Who knows. I just wished that Alex took some scenes that little bit further, creep everyone else the hell out and give them an experience to never forget.
