Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 thumbs up! This book is great for people who love Dear Canada and are just discovering the series. 12 of the girl are bought back from the series.These touching stories of Christmas offer a glimpse into each girl’s diary a year after the events of their original diary. Each short story was wonderful in its own way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK I guess It was OK. at some points it was extremely boring. But there were times where it was better. The googd things was that if you didn't read the original books, you can still read this book because it doesn't mention anything about it's original! But I guess if you're really bored, then this is a quick and easy read for you.

About the Author

Maxine Trottier was born in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan on May 3, 1950. She moved to Windsor, Ontario in Canada with her family ten years later. In 1974 she became a Canadian citizen; she holds U.S. citizenship as well. She attended several years of school at Ardmore Elementary in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, but her education was completed in Canada. She is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario. Maxine was an elementary school teacher for 31 years, and it was only after retiring that she began to write children's books. Gillian Chan was born in England on March 29, 1954. Her father was a serving RAF officer, and the family moved every two years as her father was posted to new stations in England and Europe. Chan trained as an English and Drama teacher. She came to Canada in 1990, settling in Dundas, Ontario. Her two collections of short stories for young adults, "Golden Girl" and "Glory Days", draw upon her experiences as a teacher. She switched from writing short stories to novels with her first novel, "The Carved Box," which is an historical fantasy in which myth, folklore and fact mingle. Chan is a Member of The Writer's Union of Canada. She has won the Hamilton and Region Arts Council Literary Awards for best children's book for Glory Days in 1996, which was also a short-listed finalist for the Governor General's Award and the Mr. Christie's Book Award. In 1994, Chan won the Hamilton and Region Arts Council Literary Award for best children's book for Golden Gi
