Being human is her greatest strength.

Sixteen-year-old Frost understands why she’s spent her entire life in an abandoned apartment building. The ruined streets below are hunting grounds for rogue robots and Eaters.

This book has a really cool concept but it was so slow and, in my opinion, poorly written. It was pretty
predicable and I didn't connect with the characters at all. Everything seemed... plain. I really liked the concept though and there was a lot of cool ideas through out the book. But this book just wasn't for me. Maybe if you're not a critical reader, you'll like this book a lot more than I did.

Frost knows full well why she's spent her entire life cramped in a tiny apartment and why she's never met another human aside from her father. She even understands why he expressly forbids her to go out and find medicine for her dying pet. After all, their city is a ruined wasteland and is a hunting ground for Eaters and robots gone rogue - any other human caught outside is fair game. But, her father isn't exactly her father, not anymore. Technically, his memories are giving the orders from thei ...more

Um ok. Just realized I never reviewed this book (and it's been a year lol)
But my general thoughts have been and still are this was an enjoyable book.
The main character is a bit annoying, but I loved the multiple plot lines and the world building 😊
For a while I thought there would be a second book, but never saw anything come of it? I'll still keep my eyes open, just in case. If there was a second book, I'd definitely pick it up.

A post-apocalyptic world, slowly laid out and explained as the story moves along, is the backdrop for a story of human love and hope.
Frost, a teenage girl, is losing all of her loved ones. In an attempt to save her beloved pet, the last thing she can physically cling to, she leaves the relative safety of her apartment to risk the streets of a city torn apart by the Days of Bedlam.
The people she meets along the way and the horrific sights she endures fight against the hope she carries within her.
This was so slow. It was an interesting idea, but unfortunately poorly executed. The ending was not what I wanted after reading all of that.

I received an ARC in order to write an honest review for School Library Journal.

The following is the review written for and published in School Library Journal.

Kozlowsky, M.P. Frost. 341 p. Scholastic. October 2016.
Gr 7 Up - Described as a dystopian fairy tale, Kozlowsky’s novel will appeal to many genre YA readers. Sixteen-year-old Frost must cross a treach
I don't like / won't read zombie books, but I decided to make an exception with this book because: robots! The idea of a world with both robots and zombies (rather, 'eaters', which are different from zombies because they can talk and still somewhat control themselves and their "dietary cravings" and even appear normal) intrigued me.

This was a bit slow for my liking. There are parts where I not only doubled the speed, but I also thought about dnf-ing it. I'm glad I finished it though. Something

This book was absolutely wonderful. I had thought it would be cheesy and cliched, but the book fleshed out (pun fully intended) right from the beginning. Best book of the year so far!!

Quick & Dirty: First read of 2017 and unfortunately a disappointing one at that.

Opening Sentence: In the middle of the bombed-out room flickered a small fire, and near it sat Frost.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

In Frost, we see a young girl who is almost an orphan in a land being overtaken by robots or ‘broots.’ I say almost, because although both her mother and father are dead, her father built robots and somehow left a piece of him inside one so that sometimes the r

An intriguing dystopian novel filled with suspense on every page. From the Eaters to the robots to the Good John Lord, page turner till the end. The main character Frost is a likable young girl who just wants to save her dog Romes and she is willing to risk everything to do it.
After the first chapter I was hooked. The suspense of the Eaters grabbed me and the journey Frost embarks on with Romes and her protective robot Bunt sent me on a roller coaster ride that I didn't want to end.

I went into this with low expectations. At first I saw why. I wasn’t really fond of the writing style and the plot line seemed very predictable. Boy was I wrong. So much raw emotion and love throughout this entire book. Frost taking on an entire conquest and dangerous journey because of love, which holds true throughout the entire novel.

The ending! Where is the second book? The ending and moments leading up to it were some capturing scenes I wasn’t expecting, yet they were delivered perfectly. T

Eh. I actually didn't finish this audiobook, but I made it to the 80% mark before DNFing, so I'm going to give it 2 stars for that. I was actually at the part where things were really starting to get interesting, but my commute was over and it was a Friday evening and I was just never able to make myself pick it back up to see how it ended. I think it was just a tad too out there for me, with human consciences in some robots and other robots trying to assimilate humans while still others wanted ...more

Loved it. Absolutely loved it.

Heartbreaking. Hopeful. Sad. Pained. Beautiful. Surprising.

This book was amazing. I love the characters and the world building. i love how it tackles the question, "What makes us human?"

Please, oh please. Let there be a sequel!!

A great dystopian book! A page turner in every chapter.

I read a lot of Young Adult books. Personally, I find the genre fascinating, given where the characters are in their lives. Not quite a child, not quite an adult. On the cusp of the next chapter of their existence, while trying to figure out who they really are. Everything is intense, everything is confusing, and even frightening at times. They also experience many things for the first time, monumental events that they'll remember for the rest of their lives: falling in love, driving a car, or g ...more

I will be eternally grateful for this book to get my 12 year old to be interested in reading.
His friends at school read it and he asked me to get it. We were reading it together and it’s a pretty interesting story, with some plot twists and well written.

There is a place where a war has past and everything you loved is gone that’s where Frost lives but she does have her best friend a broot named Romes. The author (M.P. Kozlowsky) wrote this book because he wanted to entertain the readers with a science fiction book. The main theme of the book is Family, because Frost cares about her pet Romes. She laid eyes on this little animal and instantly fell in love with him. This book is such a cute story, but it is also an adventurous one as well. The au ...more

I'm not very big into reading, i'm guessing because i'm not very interested in most books. This book is definitely and most positively my favorite i 100% recommend it to any new or old readers. It's so suspenseful and made me read more and more! I demand a part 2, I demand a series. I see some bad reviews saying it was too "slow" but ...more

My goodness, This book really kept me going. I think it has become one of my favorites. Frost was unexpectedly entertaining. When I first borrow the book from the Library, I thought it was going to be one of those fairy tales retelling story involving Frozen, but as soon as I encounter my first eater, I was hook. So I went and brought the book. It was not a disappointment. The story line was captivating from the very beginning. It started with some sort of innocents, but it quickly turn into a s ...more

I gave this book four stars because it was a fascinating read, and is a great addition to young adult literature. It is an easy read, the main characters are well developed and the story is not predictable. The only part I felt was lacking was the development of the world in which the story takes place. I was left with a number of questions as to how it came to be.
I highly recommend this book to students who enjoy dystopian worlds, robots, and zombies! Not only was the story full of action, the
