I really made a connection when I read this book. One of the characters reminded me of a friend I had in Texas who turned out to be a bully. She did almost everything the Herdmans did! I tried to stay out of the way, but she'd go wherever I went . I learned to choose my friends wisely, just like the six kids in this book. Another character in the book, Imogene, made a big personality change. She always had a bad attitude and bossed other kids around, but by the end of the book she made good things happen for others. I also liked the book because Christmas is one of my favorite holidays.
I recommend this book to any person who likes "lesson books". This one if definitely for them.
