Look out Charles Dickens – there’s a new Scrooge in town! And this time, instead of a crabby old man, its’ a self-absorbed, over entitled, nasty teenage girl named Holly Chase! When three ghosts visit Holly on Christmas Eve, she learns what will happen unless she changes her ways. Just like Scrooge, she has a choice – redemption or death. Can she be rehabilitated? Better yet, can she help rehabilitate another Scrooge named Ethan, who is just like herself, except he’s a self-centered, money driven, teenage boy? Laughing and maybe even crying a little, you’ll get to the end of this book and say “Wow”, I didn’t see that coming!— Terri
Before I Fall meets "bah, humbug" in this contemporary YA reimagining of A Christmas Carol from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand.
On Christmas Eve five years ago, seventeen-year-old Holly Chase was visited by three Ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she'd become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways. She didn't. And then she died.
Now she's stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge--as their latest Ghost of Christmas Past. So far, Holly's afterlife has been miserable. But this year's Scrooge is different. This year's Scrooge might change everything...
The Afterlife of Holly Chase is a witty, poignant, and insightful novel about life, love, and seizing second (or third) chances, perfect for readers who loved Before I Fall or Dash & Lily's Book of Dares.
