Lumikki Andersson may be innocent, but she’s no Snow White…Three and a half months have passed since she was left for dead in a snowdrift, and the scorching hot streets of Prague in summer provide a welcome contrast to that terrifying time. However, when she is approached on the street by a nervous young woman who claims to be Lumikki’s long-lost sister, the holiday quickly ends.
In the midst of the freezing Nordic winter, seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson walks into her school’s dark room and finds a stash of wet, crimson-colored money. Thousands of euros left to dry—splattered with someone’s blood.
“Limned in stark red, white and black, this cold, delicate snowflake of a tale sparkles with icy magic.” — Kirkus starred review
