It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, maybe not for everyone. Amanda Peet (The Whole Nine Yards) shares the story of one little girl who loves Christmas more than anything, but is disappointed that her own family doesn’t get to join in on the festivities because they’re Jewish. Can she learn to love her family’s celebrations and get over her Xmas envy?
Here’s the official synopsis for Dear Santa, Love Rachel Rosenstein by Amanda Peet and Andrea Troyer, and illustrated by Christine Davenier:
Actress Amanda Peet brings us a hilarious holiday drama in a story that every Jewish family will relate to and appreciate.
Rachel Rosenstein wonders why Santa Claus never visits her house. But this year is going to be different—even though her family is Jewish and doesn’t observe Christmas. With hilarious and heartwarming mishaps, Rachel visits Santa at the mall with her special request, writes a letter to Santa explaining her cause, and clandestinely decorates the house on Christmas Eve (right down to latkes for the reindeer). And while Rachel may wrestle with her culture, customs, and love of sparkly Christmas ornaments, she also comes away with a brighter understanding of her own identity and of the gift of friends and family.
In the spirit of the holiday season, we’re giving our readers a chance to win a copy of Dear Santa, Love, Rachel Rosenstein and a $25 Visa gift card! All you have to do is tell us what gift you would ask Santa for this holiday season.
