Nicole Luiken launching new YA novel May 4 in Calgary

Nicole Luiken will be launching her new teen paranormal novel Frost (Great Plains Publications) at Chapters Southpoint in Calgary on May 4 at 7:30 p.m.

Here's a description of the book:

Johnny Van Der Zee is a talented hockey player and seems to have everything going for him in his hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut. But his friend Kathy knows something is very wrong.

Why did Johnny deliberately crash his snowmobile? Why do mysterious accidents befall anyone Johnny gets close to? What is the secret Johnny is so desperate to tell, if only someone would listen? And who is the stranger with the cold eyes and silver hair? The one Johnny knows only as Frost …

In this supernatural thriller, Johnny’s ex-girlfriends and brother must piece together the reason for his strange behaviour to save him – and all of mankind – from Frost’s plan for a nuclear winter.
