ISBN: 9781250059307

School is finally out for Christmas break. It feels like forever since I've sat to do review a book, and as I here here at 11:12 PM, I'm thinking to myself that I am really too tired to do this. But I shall push through because I loved this book, and it's a perfect read leading up to Christmas (which is less than a week away now might I add). 

First of all, how cool is it to look at the cover and see all of the YA names we love? From Gayle Forman (If I Stay series) to Matt de la Pena (The Living) this holiday book has every perspective possible, and it's edited by international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins (Isla and the Happily Ever After). 

While you could read this book anytime during the year, it's especially wonderful during the holidays, and the stories represent all aspects of the holiday season, including Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, and New Year's, so there's definitely a voice for any reader.
