My True Love Gave To Me - Mini Review

Polaris Is Where You'll Find Me by Jenny Han


I absolutely loved this story! It’s a true Christmas story with a touch of magic and hope. My only problem with it was that it was too short. And I don’t mean in a good way, like when you want a story to continue because you like it so much. No, I mean like in a bad way when you feel like the story was cut short, like the end is missing. The end came totally unexpected to me. I turned the page and just stared at a blank page and thought: ‘Wait, what?!’


But other than that I loved the story. It gave me a warm, hopeful feeling. And it had an awesome quote in it:

“The thing about snow is, it’s very quiet. The air is hushed. It’s reverential.”

That! Yes, yes, and yes! That is what I love about winter and snow. Favorite story so far.
