Ferris Bueller’s Day Off meets 10 Things I Hate About You in this fun, contemporary novel about two sisters who have twenty-four hours to fulfill a pact and overcome the secret that threatens to tear them apart.

Sisters April and Jenn haven’t been close in years. Jenn’s too busy with school, the family antique shop, and her boyfriend, and April would rather play soccer and hang out with the boy next door.

But when April notices her older sister is sad about staying home for college, she decides to do something about it. The girls set off to revive a pact they made as kids: spend an epic day exploring the greatest hits of their childhood and all that Los Angeles has to offer.

Then April learns that Jenn has been keeping a secret that could rip their family — and their feuding parents — apart. With only one day to set things right, the sisters must decide if their relationship is worth saving, or if the truth will tear them apart for good.

Cool Yule is a special seasonal event on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I put a fun twist on some of my regular features and share a number of new, holiday-themed posts including wallpapers, reviews, recipes, gift guides, and much more!

Anyone who knows me even a little knows that I love the holidays. I love the food, the music, the decorations, and especially the extra time spent with those I love. I also really love giving gifts.

For me, gift-giving is a year-round affair. Did you mention in May that you were searching for a book on Old Hollywood scandals or couldn’t wait to read the sequel to a book you absolutely loved the year before? Chances are I was surreptitiously making a note on my phone and you would eventually find that very thing waiting under the tree for you come December.

Of all the gifts I love to give, I particularly love book-inspired ones. Shocking, I know. There’s a particular joy in sharing what I love with others, and seeing that thing inspire joy in them, too. This year, I thought it might be fun to share a series of gift guides that will do just that. From mugs to enamel pins, jewelry to artwork, over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing a number of different gift guides for the literature lover in your life that will hopefully make this holiday season a little more fun, a lot less stressful, and maybe even help you love gift-giving, too.
