Frozen Heart Summer Thaw

51udnyKtafL._SX379_BO1,204,203,200_Blaire Thompson is a junior at Dysart High School in Phoenix, Arizona. She has dreams of becoming an Olympic skater. Her dad is a Chief Master Sergeant (CMS) in the Air Force, so like most military brats she’s moved around a lot—Spain, Germany, South Carolina, and now Phoenix. Unfortunately, the summer prior to senior year CMS Thompson has orders to move to Moose Creek, Alaska.

Blaire does not want to leave her friends and especially boyfriend Tony. Maybe she can live with a friend? On the way home from skating practice she and her mom have an argument about the move. When the light changes, Chelsea Thompson enters the intersection only to be blind sided by a red semi smashing into the side of her Expedition SUV killing her and crippling Blaire.

Thus begins K.C. Sprayberry’s YA short story. It’s a coming of age tale that draws readers in immediately. We watch Blaire mature after her mom’s death as she learns to put family needs ahead of her own desires.

Frozen Heart Summer Thaw is a quick read, but it’s the kind of story that will evoke emotion and leave a lasting impression. K.C Sprayberry
