All the while, Blair endures the relentless bullying of the Ice Queen and her obnoxious friends, which escalates to new heights when she falls for the Queen’s ex-boyfriend. She desperately tries to escape the Queen’s wrath, but a nasty chain of events lands her in the midst of a cyberwar.
When Blair is finally making headway to get her life back on track, mysterious new cyberattacks threaten both her freedom and her future. Blair and her closest friends must race against time to figure out who is behind them before her entire world comes crashing down.

Good Points
Ice Queen by the talented author/attorney Felicia Farber is a fast-paced and engaging read on a timely and often ignored subject: sexting.

The main character, Blair Evans, has not had an easy time in high school especially with childhood friend now mean girl enemy, Krystal making her social life challenging. Things get worse when Blair and Krystal's ex, David, start dating. The conflict is already fierce when the first day of the new school year David and Blair are arrested for sexting. The twists and turns of their ensuring ordeal sheds light into the myriad legal and social complications of sending photos via text or email. How many teens have unknowingly opened themselves up to criminal charges by sharing photos (even ones that appear "innocent."

Ice Queen does a beautiful job of exploring the harsh laws and punishments that jeopardize the freedom of expression for teens today. You may think you know the law, but do you? Read this entertaining and heart-wrenching novel that makes you cringe, laugh, and cry when good people are unfairly framed. And take notes, so that you can help save a friend from the same horrible mess.

I had no idea about how serious the fallout for teens who sext can be until I read this book. Not only is this an awesome story but it’s a really important one that every kid in middle school and high school should read!

I loved this book so much I didn’t want it to end! I totally related to the characters and the plot was so fast-moving and intense and had that kind of edge-of-your-seat suspense that makes you stay up all night until you finish reading it. I’ve told all my friends about it because when you find something this good you want to share it. And who hasn’t seen how hurt people are when they’ve been cyberbullied? I think most kids will see themselves and their friends in this book.

You will not be able to put down this book! A fast and suspenseful read that will grip you with its intriguing and twisting plot. Not only did I love following the high school drama and budding romance of Blair Evans but I also learned so much about the legal ramifications that accompany modern day sexting. A must read for teens of both genders!
