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.

Dickens-Essie dissppointment

Starts out strong, then languishes in the middle before it's slapstick ridiculous end. A disappointment.

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.
