Goodreads description--On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she'd become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.

She didn't.

And then she died.

Now she's stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge--as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.

Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly's afterlife has been miserable.

But this year, everything is about to change. . . .

What are you guys waiting on this week? Let me know!

    This is definitely going on my twisted Christmas reads list this year. Every year I liked to read some non-traditional holiday stories and this sounds like a good one.

  3. Oooh, this sounds really goof, and I really like the cover too. Nice pick!
