Horn Book Review

After her friend's death, Sophie visits relatives on the Isle of Skye to recuperate. But her cousins have had their own bad luck; the youngest child swears it's because of a set of creepy Victorian dolls called Frozen Charlottes. Part horror, part mystery, readers will enjoy deciding if the dolls actually have powers as tension mounts and Sophie finds herself in more and more danger. (c) Copyright 2017.
