Charlie Saves Christmas
Your new Holiday Classic.
Very Bright. Very Bright.
Charlie’s world collapsed the day her sister Cassie left for a prestigious boarding school. Lost between confusion and anger, Charlie finds herself magically transported to the middle of a dark forest where her sulking attitude swiftly leads to her captivity. As Charlie works to escape her confinement, she discovers that her presence in this new world has tipped the balance of power, threatening to destroy not only this new world but her own as well.
While tasked with raising the legendary stone army, Charlie’s absence is soon discovered in the real world, tipping off a series of events that threaten to break her family further apart. A devious building manager calls Child Protective Services as Charlie’s adoptive aunt hunts for her through the dilapidated public housing tower where they live with the help of an elderly neighbor and the building’s maintenance chief.
