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 possible 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.
Told from multiple points of view Tutus and Tinsel focuses on different traditions and how the Reid-Harris clan then incorporates them into their holidays. It’s sweet and it offers a longer glimpse into the lives of the characters we’ve grown to love and the bonds they share with one another.
There’s really only one question you need to ask yourself before reading Tutus and Tinsel.
Do you love the characters Rhys Ford created in her Half Moon Bay series? If the answer is yes, then you’ll enjoy the sweet vignettes leading up to and through Christmas in this short story.
Tutus and Tinsel is not a standalone. I would definitely recommend you read Fish Stick Fridays and Hanging The Stars before reading this.
