Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"Caroline's comeuppance comes with sprigs of wit and plenty of designer name-dropping." (Publishers Weekly)

Witty

Witty take on A Christmas Carol while making fun of high fashion. Narrator managed to portray the main character, Caroline, as both annoying and sympathetic.

She's a modern day Scrooge

Who was the most memorable character of A Christmas Caroline and why?

Caroline's so mean that you can't help but root for her when the things start going wrong.

It's a great modern day version that is perfect as christmas approaches.
