Overview

This B&N Exclusive Edition has a special jacket (foil/metallic effects) along with a bonus chapter.

What if Anna and Elsa never knew each other?

As the future Queen of Arendelle, Princess Elsa's life is full of expectation and responsibility-not to mention, questions. What type of ruler will she be? When will she have to pick a suitor? And why has she always harbored the feeling that some critical piece of herself is missing?

Following the unexpected death of her parents, Elsa is forced to answer those questions sooner than she'd hoped, becoming the sole ruler of her kingdom and growing lonelier than ever. But when mysterious powers begin to reveal themselves, Elsa starts to remember fragments of her childhood that seem to have been erased-pieces that include a very familiar-looking girl. Determined to fill the void she has always felt, Elsa must take a harrowing journey across her icy kingdom to undo a terrible curse…and find the missing Princess of Arendelle.

If you adored FROZEN, you need to get your hands on this Twisted Tale which reimagines the story if Anna and Elsa did not know they were sisters. CONCEAL, DON'T FEEL follows Anna and Elsa in alternating perspectives, where Elsa grows up in the castle wishing she had siblings, and Anna grows up in a bakery making cookies with her adoptive parents. After their parents die, Elsa starts to develop powers and hides away so that no one will know. Luckily, she accidentally creates Olaf, a snowman with a delightful personality who keeps her company. Olaf tells her that she had made him for Anna, and Elsa knows that Anna is important though she does not yet understand. Anna dreams of going to Arendelle and working at a bakery there, even though she loves her parents a lot. Anna is hoping to attend the coronation of the new queen when the world turns to ice. As she sets off with Kristoff, a boy she has met who intrigues her, her world will change quite a bit, leading her back to the sister she has forgotten and putting her in the way of a curse which has been dormant for years. The book flows beautifully and hits all the beloved characters from the books (and those less-adored like the duke of Weselton) perfectly. The story is again ultimately one of love and sisters, and I enjoyed this take. I would definitely recommend for fans of the movie, who will gush over meeting their favorite characters again and going a little deeper into their minds and actions. There are not a lot of surprises here, but mainly just some variations on events. Although the book is billed as young adult, I think it could be well-suited to the middle grade audience also. Would highly recommend for fans of the movie. CONCEAL, DON'T FEEL is an engrossing and delightful read that brings the reader deeper into Anna and Elsa's minds and hearts. With all the characters known and loved making appearances, this is a lovely read for FROZEN fans of any age. Please note that I received an ARC. All opinions are my own.

This was a good and easy read that took the story from the original film and had a fun with it. With a title that says ”Twisted Tale, ” I was expecting something a little more sinister, but that wasn't the case. Some parts followed a little too close to the film, in my opinion, but other than that, it was still a fun read.

For those purists of the tale of Frozen I can see where they are upset. However the twists have always found ways to spin the story for a new branch. I found this tale to have a nice new coat of paint that kept the bond alive, but tried to hone the preachiness of the film. It does not have musical numbers and it does not have the Disney dialogue to go with it. What it does have though, is a sense of adventure that is fun, quick, and somehow captivating of the characters. I like the curse separating memories, and i liked the integration of characters well that supported it. I think it tells a lot fo the original story without getting too lost is copying the forms of the film, but yet never straying a way from the plot too much to potentially upset fans. The problem is, the book is a little too short. It's plot is very crammed, obstacles are very easily overcome, and feats feel a little plain in perhaps an attempt to please the attention spans of the new age. Around halfway through the book, the answers come too readily, and the solutions are rather plain after a decent build up. No trial by fire, no major failure, just a force dynamic of love triangle, with insecurities, all while trying to establish the strength and bonds of sisterhood. As such, the book misses the target on really delivering that punch. Like most of these twisted tales only 2 to 3 have managed to deliver that final ending of a Disney worth, but still they are entertaining to read. Given all this, the tale is fun, will be great for target audiences of young adult to early teens or for those who are loyal to Disney works. Purist beware though, you are in for a scare, because the magic of Frozen has thawed a little in this rendition. My score is actually closer to a 3.5, but i have not mastered the star system so it gets a 4.
