Six months ago, the world got covered in snow and it just never stopped coming down.  People are calling it the Freeze and there are rumors that it is the beginning of a new Ice Age.  Stuck in her apartment with her firefighter dad, a mother grieving the loss of her own mom, and an energetic little brother who is struggling with cabin fever, tween Louisa misses getting to see her friends as school is now online and the city has deemed it unsafe to venture beyond her own yard.  Downstairs live her father’s best friend, Brian, his wife and their son and Louisa’s classmate, Luke.  When Brian suffers an accident that causes him to lose his memory, Luke worries that life will never be normal again.  When he and Louisa slowly rekindle a friendship, the two, inspired by a school architecture project and wanting an escape from their respective situations, decide to build a house of ice and snow in the backyard of the apartment building.  Making the house their special place where no one else is allowed, Louisa and Luke soon discover strange magic inside it that could change the course of both their lives.  This story of coping with change, on both a global and personal level, will captivate young readers familiar with the challenges of confinement and climate change.
