    I did not like this book at ALL! This book didn't leave at a happy ending, the plot was sad, and basically everything was just about a girl just wanting to see Santa and ask him to make her best friends dad healthy. Only, she doesn't get her wish, and the dad dies. I mean, what book leaves the ending like that??!! So, like I said, I didn't like this book!
