When I started looking for a book set during Christmas, I was not overly impressed with my findings. Many modern novels set at Christmas have these ridiculously convoluted romantic plot lines that don’t appeal to me.
And then I realized that I wasn’t actually sure if I’d ever read A Christmas Carol. I’ve seen various adaptations of the story for stage and screen, but when I was in middle and high school, did I actually read the real Charles Dickens version? I had no idea. There are so many YA versions of the the classics and Scholastic always does nice adaptations, but had I ever really read this Christmas favorite as Dickens wrote it?
