When the location/setting became clear my interest perked.
The premise of giving and being thankful was neat. The "Angels" make me want to do something like the people in the story. Thomas was the best, to me. Very mature for a 15 year old. Expectations of and for the twins kept me on edge as well. This book will be on my keeper shelf!
