"Frost" by Kate Avery Ellison - who's in her dream cast?

Today is the launch party for "Frost" by Kate Avery Ellison!  Many blogs are posting parts of the dream cast, excerpts and giveaways.  You can find the schedule here.

Today we are looking at the character of Ivy.  Here is her profile and dream cast pic.  Thanks Kate for sharing this sneak peak with us!

  • Age - 14
  • What they are wearing or tend to wear – homespun clothing, pale blue cloak, necklace of snow blossoms (to keep the monsters away).
  • Hobby – telling herself stories, daydreaming, rescuing animals
  • Best memory – Playing with her puppy before it and her parents died.
  • Worst fear – Being taken away from Lia and Jonn and given to another family.
  • 1 thing they would do differently if they could – she would make it so that her parents never died.

Ivy is Lia’s younger sister. She’s fourteen, spunky, and prone to daydreaming and rescuing helpless critters from the forest (all of which drives Lia crazy). Shailene Woodley is the perfect Ivy, in my opinion, because she can look quite young, and her face has this mixture of sweetness and mischievousness.

Here's the Book Description: In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person might end up dead—and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing weather and threat of monster attacks, or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and treachery just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest, a young man from beyond the Frost named Gabe, Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable. 

She saves his life. 

Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in serious trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel, and her village has nothing to do with them. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him. 

But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle her farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but each move she makes puts her in greater danger. Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?

There will be a blog tour for this book  July 23- 28.  This book is YA Paranormal Romance.  If you have a blog and it fits the  age group and genre,  you can sign up at A Tale of Many Reviews.
