JR Wirthabout this book: Though it was never intended to be part of a series, The Town Beneath the Christmas Tree ended up being book one of the "Twisted Family Holidays" series.
Christmas is a time for family, particularly children who keep the magic of Christmas alive. What happens though when children become nasty and fight over the wrapped presents under the tree? Six cousins find out in the Town Beneath The Christmas Tree. In the spirit of Charles Dickens the cousins are placed into an unfamiliar, upside-down world, where they are forced to deal with, and rely on, each other. The journey begins with the heroine, nine-year-old Hailey Jade, landing in a winter wonderland where terror soon sets in as she realizes she is all alone. Soon she is joined by her older cousin, Isaiah. Together they recognize that the younger children have also been catapulted through time and space and are now missing and in danger. The race to find the younger children ends them up in the Town Beneath The Christmas Tree, where they find the true meaning of Christmas and the love for one another.
Before I could answer my own questions, Hayden, Arhi and Bubba ran to the bridge. They stopped at the entrance and looked back. Then they huddled and whispered.
Turning slightly, they stole another glace at Isaiah and me. Then they exchanged sly smiles with each other before running to the top of the bridge. At the top, as I predicted, they all disappeared.
"Oh my God!" I yelled and ran toward the bridge.
"Wait up," Isaiah shouted.
Faster and more athletic than me, Isaiah ran past me and straight under the bridge.
I stopped to watch. "Should I go on top?" I yelled.
In the middle of the passage, under the bridge, Isaiah stopped. All I could see was his darkened, shadowy outline, highlighted by the light from the back entrance of the bridge. He looked back at me, and then shook his head, apparently telling me to stay put. Then he lifted his right hand to give me a peace sign, and immediately turned to continue his journey.
But, he too disappeared. It was as though he was sucked out of the other side of the passage under the bridge.
