ABOUT THE BOOK
Christmas is almost here—and for Abby, it will be a Pennsylvania holiday with her cousin Josh. Together they'll sample Philly cheese steaks and whoopee pies; visit Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United States; hear the sound of rocks that ring like bells; and choose the perfect blue spruce from one of the state's 1,400 Christmas tree farms. What a wonderful trip!
