Every day is like Christmas for Caroline, a young blond editor at Presents, the shopping magazine. Every day brings more free Guccis and Pradas for her magazine and her closet. But the actual Christmas is a drag: everyone gets presents. And Caroline is feeling the loss of her mysterious father more than ever. Her fabulous designer mother is in dumpy Branson, Missouri, her redheaded assistant Ursula Heep is scheming behind her back, that creepy receptionist Mrs. Defarge won't stop with the knitting, and a 6' 7" football player named Tiny Tim is obsessed with her.

On Christmas Eve, the ghost of Caroline's dead roommate, Carly, returns to warn that three more spirits are coming. Caroline begins a trip to Christmases past, present, and future, but though she has nine closets, she doesn't have a thing to wear.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It's Christmas Eve in uptown Manhattan; self-serving fashionista Caroline is a rude and spoiled narcissist who tramples on everyone's feelings…Caroline's comeuppance comes with sprigs of wit and plenty of designer name-dropping.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A chick-lit tweak of the Dickens classic.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " What I learned from this book was that you should never mess with a classic like the Christmas Carol. This book showed promise I thought, and kept me interested until the last quarter of the book. It then seemed that the author just gave up. I won't be reading this again. "

    " This book was awful. The writing was strange, the characters were the most unlikable characters ever, which I suppose was the point, but I think the author went to far especially with the mother character La. The take on the Christmas carol was a good effort but it didn't fully work and many of the story lines were just random. Like the roommate story on the black box huh was that suppose to be funny? Seriously, it was just bad. I wanted to give up but since I read fast it was really only a waste of a few hours so I just finished. Not worth the time to read it though. "

    " Couldn't even finish it. This book was STU.PID. "

    " For those who love chick literature and the song, "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer." "
