"Inspiring, cozy, and full of heart!" --Lisa Greenwald, author of 11 Before 12 and the Pink & Green series

A thirteen-year-old girl spends her first holiday away from home completing a scavenger hunt that takes her across Europe in 12 Dares of Christa, the first contemporary novel from Marissa Burt, author of Storybound. Christa is a holiday junkie. What's not to love? There's decorations! Gifts! Caroling with friends! But thanks to her parents' recent separation, Christa's favorite time of year is now filled with heartache. And when her mom announces that she's taking her on a mother-daughter trip to Europe over winter vacation, Christa knows she should be excited. She just can't imagine spending the yuletide season without her dad. However, waiting at her hotel in Italy is a special package from her father: the first of twelve dares that take Christa to landmarks in three beautiful countries and introduce her to people who will show her that hope is alive in the strangest of places. Funny, genuine, and feel-good to the core, The 12 Dares of Christa is one fa-la-la-filled adventure that fans of Wendy Mass and Lisa Greenwald will love.
