Frozen Billy

Frozen Billy was an interesting and scary read. Written from the point of view of Clarrie when her mother is sent to gaol and she is left at home with her uncle Len, her brother and Frozen Billy, her uncle’s dummy. When Len spends all his money on drinks and ends up destroying her brother’s life she decides that she must do something, but what?

Will she ever smile like the girl on the cocoa tin? Will her mother get out of gaol? Will she ever get to see her father again? This book is full of questions that keep on coming right until the end. Though it can give you nightmares if you are scared of creepy wooden dolls it is an OK book. I’d give it seven out of ten, definitely taking points off for it being creepy and for not having vampires in it. 🙂
