Everyone in Devil’s Lake knows the three golden Malloy sisters—but one of them is keeping a secret that will turn their little world inside out….

No one knows exactly what happened to Kit in the woods that night—not even her sisters, Tessa and Lilly. All they have are a constellation of facts: icy blue lips and fingers cold to the touch, a lacy bra, an abandoned pick-up truck with keys still in the ignition.

Even though everyone is quick to jump to conclusions, Tessa is certain that her sister’s killer wasn’t Boyd, the boy next door whom they’ve all loved in their own way. Still, there are too many details that don’t add up, too many secrets tucked away in the past.

But no matter how fiercely Tessa searches for answers, at the core of that complicated night is a truth that’s heartbreakingly simple.

Praise For Frozen Beauty

“A lyrical, raw, stay-up-all-night-to-finish kind of book. This story about three sisters, a boy next door, and too many secrets, is not only beautifully told but is also an important narrative about the dangers that sometimes lurk closer than we think. My heart still hasn’t recovered.”
— Shea Ernshaw, author of The Wicked Deep
