Frost - Marianna Baer Pros:* Gothic style novel* Boarding schools* Who's the real crazyCons:* I don't really have any...The writing in this debut novel is eloquent, the plot twists are tight, and everything comes to light in the end, or does it?I kept thinking about [b:The Turn of the Screw|12948|The Turn of the Screw|Henry James|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1327909344s/12948.jpg|990886] while reading this, which makes sense as it is the quintessential gothic horror novel. I also love that even though Leena is the narrator, she becomes increasingly unreliable throughout the novelIt's so hard to talk about this book without giving it away, but at the same time it's the kind of novel you want all your friends to read so you can discuss plot points and theories. For example, at first I was a little disappointed that the answer was carbon monoxide poisoning, but then the author set up the counterbalance that maybe the poisoning was the houses way of keeping Leena.
