The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand


Book Summary:

On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly 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 the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.

Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly’s afterlife has been miserable.

But this year, everything is about to change. . . . 

My Review:

So I kinda end up reading this Christmas book early. Thinking it was Halloween theme but I was so wrong. I did end up loving this book and perfect for the holidays seasons. Love this different take on A Christmas Carol. I would have never thought of an world where there people helping other scrooges out there. Plus have an failed scrooge helping them out for years. At first you like wanted to dislike Holly Chase for all the bad things she done to everyone. Can a scrooge be redeem after they fail? Lots of nice twist and turns you don’t see coming and prefect for the Christmas spirit this coming season! Happy Reading!
