Blurb from Goodreads: 
 
Seventeen-year-old Snow lives within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she doesn't belong there, but she has no memory of life outside, except for the strangest dreams. And then a mysterious, handsome man, an orderly in the hospital, opens a door – and Snow knows that she has to leave …
She finds herself in icy Algid, her true home, with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she's destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change everything. Heroine or villain, queen or broken girl, frozen heart or true love, Snow must choose her fate …

DNF @20%


 
Snow has spent most of her life in the Whittaker Institute, a mental hospital. She has strange dreams and one night a man visits her. He calls Snow a princess and tells her that she doesn't belong in the institute.
Escaping, Snow finds herself in the land of Algid. The icy realm is Snow's real home and she is heir to the thrown.
Can Snow survive as secret after secret is revealed?
Will she become Queen?


I was drawn to Stealing Snow by the intriguing premise and the cover.
Unfortunately, I struggled to get into the storyline.
I didn't find Snow to be very likeable and thought she was annoying at times.
The writing style felt clunky and didn't flow easily. Certain words were repeated too often like 'noticed'.


Unfortunately, this wasn't for me.
