But while he and Leena hit it off immediately, Leena finds herself struggling to balance her growing attraction with her fear of getting hurt.As classes get under way, strange happenings begin to bedevil Frost House—frames mys-teriously falling off walls, doors locking by themselves, furniture toppling over. Celeste blames the housemates, convinced they want to scare her into leaving. And while Leena tries to play peacekeeper between her best friends and new roommate, soon the mysterious happenings in the dorm, an intense triangle between Leena, Celeste, and David, and the reawakening of childhood fears all push Leena to take increasingly desperate measures to feel safe. But does the threat lie with her new roommate, within Leena’s own mind . . . or in Frost House itself?Frost is a stunning and surprising tale of suspense from debut author Marianna Baer.

I went into Frost with just a general idea of what it was about, but I was so intrigued. From the very first page I was sucked in and I needed to know what was going on.

The story progressed quickly and constantly had me guessing what was going on up until the last few pages. I did get annoyed with some of the characters sometimes, but they were teenagers who were in a boarding school so I guess that's not too surprising.

The end though! I was slightly disappointed, mostly because there were so many things left unexplained. I expected something more or bigger after all the build up and constantly making you question what the heck was going on.

It was a pretty quick read for me and I enjoyed every minute of it.
This book is AMAZING. It's definitely a must-read. Full review to follow.
