Zig Reid-Harris has everything an eleven-year-old girl could ever want: a great home, two fantastic fathers named Deacon Reid and Lang Harris, and all the books she could possibly read.
When a school assignment about holiday traditions unexpectedly broadsides her, she discovers burying the past isn’t as easy as it looks, and the stark reality of her life before her adoption sinks in. Ashamed of the bleakness and poverty she came from, Zig struggles with the assignment until an epiphany strikes the whole family—it’s time to start their own traditions.
Zig and her fathers plunge into the insanity of holiday joy, exploring everything the season has to offer and learning how precious family truly is along the way.
This book was AH-DORABLE! What’s more is that I didn’t even read the first book where these guys met and fell in love. But it was written in such a way that you didn’t have to read the first one. Spoiler alert- I am definitely going back to read book 1.
Zig’s mother died of a drug overdose and she never knew her father. She was then adopted by her uncle and her uncle’s husband (maybe boyfriend then? Like I said, I haven’t read book 1). Until she got her two new dads, her life was pretty awful. So when she gets an assignment about family holiday traditions she doesn’t know what to do.
Make new ones!
So we got a really cute story of 2 dads wanting to make new happy memories and traditions for their daughter. By blending some old and some new and making them their own.
Zig is amazing really. Potty mouth, combat boots and tutus who loves her dads fiercely while still dealing with past traumas.
This was a lovely palate cleanser book just right for Christmas.
