New book highlights Christmas season
Review by Emily Boyle
The Year We Stole Christmas
by Bradley McBride
It’s 1973, and ten-year-old Scott Hadley and his friends have Robin Hood on the brain.
After seeing someone who could use some Christmas cheer, the gang of friends make some bad decisions…albeit with good intentions.
What follows is a series of hijinks and humor, with a whole lot of heart.
Nostalgic, funny, and heartwarming, The Year We Stole Christmas tells a great story while helping us remember the real focus of the season.
Children of the sixties and seventies will especially appreciate the pop culture and childhood references, while others will enjoy getting a glimpse into a different time.
The Year We Stole Christmas follows McBride’s Christmas novella last year, Up on the Housetop: A Christmas Story. Both books are available to purchase at the San Juan Record Bookstore.
