Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick has a super ridiculous premise that we’re 100% behind: The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand.
One of the authors of My Lady Jane — which explains the bonkers presence — The Afterlife of Holly Chase follows an entity who spends her afterlife stuck as the Ghost of Christmas Past.
It’s basically Dead Like Me meets A Christmas Carol, and we can definitely get behind that premise.
The Afterlife of Holly Chase hits shelves on October 24, 2017, just in time for the start of the Christmas season.
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.
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. . . .
