I first heard about this book through an email in which I was invited to review it. After reading the synopsis, I thought it would be a cute fun book to read. Although at times I was slightly bored, in the end I'm very glad I read it.
The main character's mother, Ophelia, died three months prior to the beginning of the story so the family is still trying to pick up the pieces. Ophelia does not believe in magic and wizards. She has an older sister Alice, and her father is a sword expert and was hired to prepare an exhibition in the museum where the Marvelous Boy was locked. Ophelia finds him and he pleads for her help to free him and defeat the Snow Queen before the quickly upcoming deadline.
This was a very cute book. Although I would never buy it, a nice read for the library would be perfect!
