Bryony Lavery's Frozen uses elements of a fairy tale as pegs on which to hang her portrayal of a mother's quest for her lost daughter. This chapter analyses a selection of journalists' accounts of the children's deaths in relation to Frozen. It also discusses Shelagh Stephenson's award-winning The Memory of Water, Alice Sebold's highly acclaimed novel, The Lovely Bones, and Martin McDonagh's play, The Pillowman.
