Giles, Jeff

"I recommend this book because it's fantasy-adventure action packed with a good contrast in the love genre. Main character Zoe and her little brother get entangled with a mysterious boy while out in a snow blizzard. Zoe decides to name the boy 'X' and along the way get's close to him. The choices Zoe makes when she meets X holds the safety of her and her family, along with X's safety. This book is thrilling and overall keeps you on edge wondering what happens next. It's a great read and the way the book is narrated and presented gives a nice setting you can easily imagine."
