Wintersmith (Discworld (for young readers) #4) - Terry Pratchett8.46

Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made one little mistake…

And now the spirit of winter is in love with her. He gives her snowflakes and icebergs, says it with avalanches and showers her with snowflakes – which is tough when you're 13, but also just a little bit… cool.

And just because the Wintersmith wants to marry you is no excuse for neglecting the chores. So she must look after Miss Treason, who's 113 and has far too many eyes, learn the secret of Boffo, catch Horace the cheese, stop Annagramma Hawkin from becoming an embarrassment to all witches, avoid Nanny Ogg giving her a lecture on sex, stop the gods from seeing her in the bath -

‘Crivens!’

– oh yes, and be helped by the Nac Mac Feegles, whether she wants it or not.

It's unfair, but as Granny Weatherwax says, no one ever said it was going to be. And if Tiffany doesn't work it all out, there will never be another springtime…

A glorious and exuberant fantasy tale, crackling with energy and humour, Wintersmith is the third tale in a sequence about Tiffany Aching and the Wee Free Men.

Set on the Discworld.
