This was a amazingly great book. I love it so much that I want to buy the book now! I am not a big reader at all. I barely finish any book I start but this book was a good one. I read it one whole day. I really enjoy the book. The book told me that true miracles can happen and gives me hope. If you don't want to read this book because it a Christmas. yes, it has to deal with Christmas. But this might change your mind about Christmas. Anyways don't let the thought of it being a Christmas book let you miss out on a great book. It has to deal with Christmas but it has much more to point out and say. It gives details about life. Again the book told me that there are such thing as true miracles. It gives me hope. It really made me think. There where some problem in the book, that might me stop and think. It give also gives a good lesson to not judge people how they look or act. Because you never know that might turn the opposite, depending on the impact you make on them.
