Behind door number 18 of my advent calendar, we find The Festivus Miracle by Kim Fielding. It’s the perfect book if you want something short that will make you smile from ear to ear the entire time you’re reading it, and go awwwww every other sentence. Just my kind of story!
It’s finals week during Tony McNeil’s second year in law school, and he’s struggling to keep up. Frankly, he’d rather be cooking. Then he meets first-year student Eddie Cohen-Fernandez, who’s heartsick over missing his family’s annual Festivus celebration. Tony can use his culinary skills to lift Eddie’s spirits, but finding long-term happiness? That just might require a Festivus miracle.
Today’s quote from the book:
Seemingly deciding to abandon his own studies in lieu of interrogation, Eddie cocked his head again. If he ever did that when cross-examining a witness on the stand, the witness wouldn’t dare face such adorableness with anything but the truth.
Today’s song to go with the story
I’d Like You For Christmas by Julie London, because Eddie literally gives his family Tony for their festivus celebration 🙂
