About this deal

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lilias with her fear of bones, and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true.

I was also lucky enough to get my copy signed by Bell at YALC earlier on in the year, so I was even more excited to pick it up.From Uncle James with his paranoia about keeping the gate closed (because Rebecca fell to her death when she wandered out and over the edge of a cliff), to surly Cameron, prone to unpredictable bouts of violent behaviour… From sweet, smiling Piper, who likes to wear her dead sister’s creepy ‘Frozen Charlotte’ dolls in a string around her neck, to disturbed little Lilias, who was born after her sister’s death, yet claims she can see Rebecca playing out in the garden. From the moment Sophie arrives on Skye, it becomes obvious that the Craig family are in an unnatural state of suspension – that none of them have been able to move on from Rebecca’s death all those years ago.

The third book, written during her first summer holidays off from university, found a home with Gollancz.Aside from all these wonderful things that made me love Frozen Charlotte, do you know what my favourite thing was? Overall, this was a pacey, fun read – spooky and atmospheric – with a lot of genuinely scary scenes! When Rebecca finally reaches the cliff edge, Piper kicked her sister in the face and threw snowballs at Rebecca causing her to fall. I was hooked for a while, totally on edge when it came to the uncomfortable exchanges between characters and the constant misdirects. Jackson’s debut is well-executed and surprises readers with a connective web of interesting characters and motives.
