Themes: Brothers and sisters/ Christmas in New York City/ Friendship/ Love stories
Lily has had a hard year and somehow all her enthusiasm for her favourite time of year, Christmas, has melted away like the snow on the sidewalk. It is up to Dash and a mixture of true friends and relations to help her find her passion for life once more. Sounds a little ephemeral? Far from it!  This is a wise and witty novel that will be particularly appreciated by readers who have already met the characters in Dash and Lily’s Book of Days and, as a non-demanding read it is just right for the end of year wind down.   
Year 8 up/ Age 12 up (and adults)
