It begins as a romance between two teenagers searching for a deeper meaning in life in their small town. When the enigmatic Anna—who prefers to go by Anastasia—shows up in the halls of Hamilton High, she changes the narrator’s life, opening his mind to Baudelaire and Mozart and revealing a world of magic tricks, ghost stories, and affectionate mind games. Together the couple probe through enchanted woods, the Internet, and everything in between—until, one winter evening a week before Valentine’s Day, Anastasia disappears, leaving only a dress on a frozen river.

Suddenly alone, the narrator is hit with the weight of life’s less playful mysteries, possible signs from the supernatural, and the mystery of what actually happened to his missing love. Determined to find Anna, he begins to retrace their past five months together and finds that the fragments of memory coalesce into haunting revelations.

A mesmerizing labyrinth of art, magic, and cryptic codes that sparks the imagination and teases the intellect, As Simple as Snow is a mind-bending mystery, as well as a poignant and wise look at young love, loss, and family.

    " I have to admit, I didn't finish the book. One day, I will and when that day comes, I'll write a proper review, but for now I'll say that this guy must have had a love affair with this book because the amount of detail and pop cultural inclusion is tremendous. "

    " This was a real shit-show. A bland high school dude falls in love with this goth chick who has all these obscure interests she forces on him, and long story short, she disappears and you have to try and figure out if she was murdered, committed suicide, or ran away. There are a bunch of so-called "clues" throughout the book that are actually all red herrings and the book concludes with no resolution. That didn't bother me so much as the fact that the road to nowhere was boring. I would only recommend this to someone who I was sure wanted to punch me in the face already. "
