    Charity Jones is a 16-year-old engineering genius who’s much-bullied for being biracial and a skeptic at her conservative school in Oak County, California. Everything changes when Charity’s social worker mother brings home a sweet teen runaway named Aidan to foster for the holidays. Matched in every way, Charity and Aidan quickly fall in love. But it seems he’s not the only new arrival: Charity soon finds the brutally slain corpse of her worst bully and she gets hard, haunting evidence that the killer is stalking Oak County. As she and her Skeptics Club investigate this death and others, they find at every turn the mystery only grows darker and more deadly. One thing’s for certain: there’s a bloody battle coming this holiday season that will change their lives – and human history – forever.

    Will they be ready?


    What They’re Saying About Snowed

    Snowed was a whole ‘nother nightmare about Christmas by that troublemaker writer, Maria Alexander. Her work always keep me up all night and Snowed was no exception! ! I’m already looking in my dusty, cobwebbed Christmas stocking for her next book. C’mon, Maria! Hurry up!”
    —Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author, The Rules

    “Sorry Katniss and Bella… Charity is the hero I’ve been waiting for. She is sharp, fierce, loyal, and not afraid to let her brain move in concert with her heart. If bodies started dropping in my neighborhood, she’s who I’d want by my side.”
    Lilla Zuckerman Writer / Producer Marvel’s Agents of Shield, Fringe

    “…the fantasy elements are fully imagined, and the unique premise may attract horror fans, who will appreciate the teens’ creative solutions for fighting the villains.”—School Library Journal
