The Girl Who Steals Christmas
Last year Christmas didn’t happen because their mother had just died...
It's a hot miserable December and the De Lainey family are actively ignoring the festive season, but when Moxie finds her little sister's screwed ...more
No, but for reals, I ADORED this short story so, so much. The De Laineys are so loveable and them trying to do Christmas... without a special someone... just... UGH. My heart. *cries*
Heartwarming and funny and a bit sad... perfect recipe for how all Christmas short stories should be!
Highly recommend it! ...more
Wow... Super cute and heartbreaking.
Content really bothered me though. I wish people actually realized that Christmas isn't Christmas without Christ.

I was supposed to read this prequel in the morning of Christmas Day, to feel like I would be opening a gift considering I celebrate on the night of Christmas Eve. Unsurprisingly though, I got caught up in the festivities and didn’t have the time, or at least the energy, to commit to reading it. Now I have though, and I absolutely loved it.
I’ve missed the De Lainey’s a little too much ever since I first read The...more
I LOVEEEEE little character developing stories (see: my review for Stars Above ) and I absolutely LOVED this story! It was such a well written prequel, featuring one of my favorite fictional families. It was also set during Christmas in Australia, and it's the first book I've ever read in that setting. Also it made me cry again so Cait is three for ...more
