LoveReading View on The Truth About Celia Frost

A Lovereading4Kids 'Debut of the Year 2011' selection.

11+. This gripping debut novel unravels a hidden secret in a story about a girl who urgently needs to find out why she has always led such a very unusual life. Celia Frost has a rare disease that means she can bleed to death at any moment. Always going out with gloves on, never playing with other children, Celia has lived in a bubble because her mother is determined to keep her ‘safe’. But what if Celia has nothing wrong with her? Why has her mother been trying to stop her from having fun? Unravelling the truth brings many surprises and an exciting thriller..  A debut author with a bright future.

The Lovereading Comment:

A page-turning thriller that's impossible to put down.  A buried secret; a gripping manhunt; a dangerous deceit: what is the truth about Celia Frost? This gripping, rollercoaster ride of a thriller confronts through-provoking issues about medical research and the good of the individual versus society and is a touching rite of passage about a girl's relationship with her mother.  A breath of fresh air from the multitude of vampires, werewolves and angels from a bright new talent in fiction for teens/young adults.

The Truth About Celia Frost Synopsis

Celia Frost is a freak. At least that's what everyone thinks. Her life is ruled by a rare disorder that means she could bleed to death from the slightest cut, confining her to a gloomy bubble of safety. No friends. No fun. No life. But when a knife attack on Celia has unexpected consequences, her mum reacts strangely. Suddenly they're on the run. Why is her mum so scared? Someone out there knows - and when they find Celia, she's going to wish the truth was a lie.
