    2. Inhalt: Düstere Botschaften aus der Vergangenheit Lily Frost zieht mit ihrer Familie in ein altes Haus in einer verschrobenen Kleinstadt. Ihr Zimmer auf dem Dachboden ist ihr unheimlich: Immer wieder fällt der Strom aus, die Tür verriegelt sich von selbst und Lily entdeckt Buchstaben, die in die alten Dielen geritzt sind – sie ergeben ihren Namen. Jemand – etwas – scheint mit ihr kommunizieren zu wollen. Ist es Tilly, das Mädchen, das früher hier gelebt hat? Warum traut sich niemand [...]

    3. I heard about a new Aussie YA novel, The Haunting of Lily Frost by Nova Weetman, during the same week that Jo, Jenna, and I decided to go on a ghost tour - spooky, right? No, not really, but I will say that this book was scarier than the ghost tour! The ghost tour was like an evening bush walk with not-very-scary stories whereas Lily’s story gave me chills.Fifteen year old Lily Frost lives in Melbourne with her parents and younger brother Max, until her parents decide to move them to a small t [...]

    4. The book was ok. I may be a bit fussy but i expected more. It took me all but 4 hours to read this 232 page book and i was sad. I would rather the book had shown more about tilly rose or showed an indication of a sequel. This story is more teen angst than an actual girl being haunted. I also wonder why the author even added a sort of romance between the protag and her li, as they are 15 after all, was it really necessary? Also Lily was a bit ooc at the end.The Haunting of Lily Frost

    5. I’m not normally a fan of ghost stories, but this hooked me in and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened at the end. Creepy!

Doch etwas zieht sie magisch an in diesem Haus, es geschehen seltsame Dinge. Türen öffnen und schließen sich wie von Zauberhand, ihr Name ist in die Holzdielen geritzt und Lily hat das Gefühl, nicht ganz allein zu sein. Lily vers [...]

    8. This was on the reading list for the school book club. It was on the Aurelius Awards shortlist, which is the list we were going off as required reading. This novel is not my cup of tea, I'd like to make this clear. Ghosts, hauntings, and that sort of thing are not really the genre that I enjoy. However, I decided to keep an open mind and read it anyway. The Haunting of Lily Frost reminded me of Fairytales for Wilde Girls, mainly in regards to the fact that there's a girl who's being haunted (sur [...]

    9. I’m really not one for ghost stories. I scare easily, my imagination goes into overdrive and I end up sleeping with the light on. But every now and then a spooky story draws me in. A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon Marchlands, a mini-series telling the story of three families living in the same house in different time periods. The families are linked by the spirit of a young girl who died mysteriously in the 1960s. I’ve been looking for a story with the same amount of mystery, creepines [...]

    10. Lily zieht mit ihrer Familie in ein winziges Dorf, in ein verfallenes, unheimliches Haus. Gefrustet von der Geldnot der Eltern, die den Umzug nötig machen, muss Lily ihr altes Leben hinter sich lassen. Doch richtig ankommen kann sie in ihrem neuen Zuhause auch nicht. In ihrem Zimmer entstehen aus dem Nichts Pfützen, im Dunkeln hört sie ein fremdes Atmen und eine rote Kapuzenjacke taucht auf, die Lily nicht gehört. Dann erfährt sie, dass in ihrem Haus vorher ein Mädchen gelebt hat, das eine [...]

    11. Actual Rating: 3.5I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewIn a nutshell: The Haunting of Lily Frost is an atmospheric ghost story that combines contemporary and paranormal elements.When Lily Frost moves to the country - much to her annoyance - she gets more than she bargained for. It's hard enough having to leave her best friend, Ruby, and settle in a new place where she knows no one, without the mystery of her house's previous inhabitants. As she uncovers the mys [...]

    12. I am continually impressed with the lovely Australian YA published by University of Queensland Press, and the Haunting of Lily Frost doesn't disappoint (and how good is the cover?). The novel opens with a memory: Lily as a young child, terrified of next door's dog and almost drowning in the pool, foreshadowing things to come and setting the scene beautifully.I would recommend this to younger YA readers (let's say twelve to sixteen) though I'm very wary of putting age suggestions on books because [...]

    13. Lily Frost is 15 and not happy about being forced to move from the city to the country town of Gideon. Removed from all that is familiar, including her best friend, next-door neighbour Ruby, Lily is sullen, sarcastic and determined to hate her new home. As she arrives at the house, Lily feels uneasy - the house is huge and rambling and just doesn't feel "right". Choosing the creepy attic as her bedroom intially as a way to annoy her mother, Lily soon discovers that there is more wrong with the h [...]

    14. Lily ist gar nicht davon begeistert, dass sie mit ihrer Familie in eine Kleinstadt ziehen muss. Sie muss ihre beste Freundin Ruby zurück lassen und auch sonst kann sie der neuen Stadt nichts abgewinnen. Das neue Haus ist seltsam, hier gehen komische Dinge vor sich. Wie sich herausstellt, hat in dem Haus die 15-jährige Tilly gelebt, die einfach verschwunden ist. Lily macht sich auf die Suche nach Antworten, was nicht so einfach ist, denn noch kennst die fast niemanden in der neuen Stadt. Was is [...]

    15. I decided to read this book because I really like reading scary stories and I saw this book at the library and thought it looked interesting. The book is about a girl named Lily Frost who has to move house because her parents are having financial problems. She is forced to leave her best friend Ruby and settle in a small town called Gideon. Soon after Lily and her family move in, strange things start happening and Lily begins to get haunted by the ghost of Matilda Rose. She then has to figure ou [...]

    16. I was given this book by my teacher to read and I haven't really read books like this one before so I was a bit wary about it. But I don't regret reading it at all! The book was amazing. The characters were so well written and Nova gave me a clear image in my head of what they looked like. The suspension and the creepiness was out of this world and I loved every last part of it. It gave me chills and I couldn't stop reading it! I especially loved the relationship between the characters and their [...]

    17. A solid read. The ghost story elements provide a level of tension that reflects Lily's disquiet at being forced to move to the country, away from all she holds dear (basically, her BFF, Ruby).Gideon, the country town is portrayed in perfect detail - the boredom of the teenagers, the nosiness of the neighbours, and as in every town everywhere, the snootiness of the Queen Bee, in this case, a girl called Julia.Lily meets Danny, and their back and forth relationship annoyed me. But some of that was [...]

    18. Finding ghost stories that are appropriate for younger high school students can be hard, so I was very pleased to read this story, and find that it ticks all the boxes. It's not a demanding read, but the characters are engaging and the ghost is scary, but shouldn't give readers nightmares! There's a sprinkle of first time romance, and a true portrayal of girls and their relationships with best friends and family. Highly recommended for Years 7+.

    19. A gripping ghost story for teenagers. Lily has to move house with her family, and as soon as she enters the old, country house she feels cold and senses unseeing eyes are watching her. As the days pass by, Lily learns the girl who used to live in the house mysteriously disappeared. Lily starts to have the uneasy feeling the girl, Matilda, is dead and her ghost is haunting Lily looking for answers.

    20. It's interesting to go back to read books that are designed for young people and work out whether you can have the same experience as a young reader. This story of girl who's reluctantly relocated to a country town has some great strengths in its story telling but I felt distant from it all. I'm sure that's just age.
