Classics, at Christmas there are certain classics that we all look to as what Christmas is. White Christmas with Bing Crosby, The Miracle On 34th Street, The Nutcracker, It’s A Wonderful Life, and Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, just to name a few.
Charlie Dixon doesn’t see much need for the classics, especially A Christmas Carol when it comes to doing school plays at Christmas. She would much rather do a popular musical than the classics. Losing her job over this Charlie returns home to her grandmother’s house.
There Charlie has to deal with a few of her own ghosts as Sis, her grandmother, puts her to work helping an old flame, Dustin Kennedy, prepare A Christmas Carol for the high school drama class.
One thing that I like is how Eva Marie Everson has taken a quote from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at the opening of the chapter and wove them into the book. This is one book I had a hard time putting down. Great to read wrapped in a blanket by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa.
