The Warmest December is an emotional book about one woman's healing after surviving a childhood lived with alcoholic parents. Not only do her parents drink, but her father is physically abusive and leaves physical and emotional scars on the main character, Kenzie and her brother. As a reader, I felt for Kenzie, but was angry with her mother for not leaving when she had the support of Kenzie's grandmother. McFadden grabs the reader's attention and maintains it throughout the novel with an effective use of time shifts. Not only does the reader find out about the main character's past but also their current conflicts. This book describes a serious subject with an element of hope for the future.
