A Real Christmas This Year
Twelve-year-old Megan's efforts to provide a real Christmas for her multiply handicapped brother and the rest of the family cause problems with her best friend and some other schoolmates. Megan loves her little brother Kevin, but she still wishes for the kind of social and family life she could have if he weren't multi-handicapped. An accident causes her home life to become chaotic and unhappy again, but with determination and ingenuity--and in the true spirit of the season--Megan manages to make her Christmas dream come true.
