This is a book about being kind and knowing that God has a plan for everyone in his time, you just have to listen and follow him. When Charlie loses to his sister, she makes him join a society club that is assigned to the Christmas Carol book and is to complete assignments each week. Charlie is not happy about it, but befriends Albert (who is also at the society meetings). They work together to help and guide each other on their weekly assignment, while learning about each other and their faith.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a great read with a surprise ending. I couldn't stop reading this book as it had so many different angles and turns, it didn't stop surprising you until the end. It was a book that I would definitely re-read and share again and again.... it has such a wonderful message. Rebekah Jones is becoming one of my new favorite authors by writing stories about faith and having such a strong message in her books. LOVE THIS BOOK, Want to give as a gift to my friends, family and co-workers.... good read for ALL!

Christmas Carol Society – How Do You Impersonate a Christmas Ghost?

More from Rebekah Jones
Christmas Carol Society is a book very near and dear to my heart. Partly because of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, which is among my favorites, and partly due to my characters. Especially, Charlie Baker.
Charlie is very special to me. He wants to hide in his tiny corner of the world, and give up. He wants to give up on a world that has hurt him tremendously or taken people he loved. He wants to push away any possibility of repeating the past; he doesn’t want to be hurt again.
Charlie doesn’t want to join the Christmas Carol Society. He doesn’t want to find a “Scrooge.” He doesn’t want to make new friends. He doesn’t want to do any of it.
He joins because he loves his cousin. He doesn’t do it for any other reason.
His father encourages him to do it right, if he’s going to do it at all. His cousin calls him out, when his Christianity is at odds with his behavior. And Albert, his would-be friend, just doesn’t give up on him.
In a sense, Charlie is a Scrooge – and yet, he’s not. He has to find a Scrooge of his own. And through it, he finds himself doing all the things that he really doesn’t want to do at all – and it’s a good thing. Painful sometimes, but good. Scary at times, but good.
The characters that the LORD uses to teach me the most, end up being particularly special to me. Charlie is one of them. In some ways, I relate to Charlie rather a lot, and writing this story drove me to prayer often, so I would know what to do next. I frequently wasn’t sure where the story would go. But I learned along with Charlie.
I hope that my readers will love Charlie Baker as much as I do, and that his story, along with the others in this book, will in some way bless and encourage my readers for the LORD’s glory.
To the KING be all the glory!
