Told through texts, emojis and status updates is the classic story of Scrooge. Told in a way that captures the younger generation's attention by writing it in a way that is familiar to them. As soon as I saw that this book was written the way it is, I knew I had to check it out, and it's just like I thought it was going to be like and I loved it! There's something about the writing style that made me want to keep reading and reading until the very last page. It's written so that you can enjoy a classic story in a fun way and still get the full story. Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
