A captivating, middle-grade novel.
WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT
Spring has arrived, and yet an unyielding winter freeze has left Louisa snowed into her apartment building for months with parents coping with extreme stress, a little brother struggling with cabin fever, and—awkwardly—her neighbor and former close friend, Luke. The new realities of this climate disaster have not only affected Louisa’s family, but when Luke’s dad has an ice-related accident and it’s unclear if he’ll recover, both families’ lives are turned upside down.
Desperate to find an escape from the grief plaguing their homes, Louisa and Luke build a massive snow fort in their yard. But their creation opens up an otherworldly window to what could lie ahead, and sets them on a mission: to restore the universe to its rightful order, so the ice will melt and life will return to “normal”.

I grew up in New York, where I dreamed of becoming a teacher, a writer, an ice skater, an artist, an interior designer, and occasionally, a professional taste-tester.
Though I’m still not totally sure what I want to be when I grow up, I’ve always loved stories, and I feel so lucky that I get to write them.
