First book of the Never Trilogy... As I grew up, my mom would have an explanation for almost everything. Presents at Christmas is Santa. Eggs hidden during Easter is Bunny. Getting quarters for my teeth is Tooth Fairy. Good dreams is Sandman. As I grew up, I stopped believing and my mom gave me new explanations for everything. But I never quite understood Winter. It was the only one that my mom didn't have a magical explanation for. No snow falling or frost forming on windows. I wonder if Winter has a Guardian?
