    Three novellas about 90 pages each but boy did they pack a punchChristmas Child SO SAD but I liked the message Melanie was a really sweet girl who really matured a lot and I loved how supportive her friends were Absolutely heartbreaking though 4 stars Last Dance my least favorite of the three but still was cute Doug was likable enough but it wasn’t as deep or meaningful as the other two 3 stars Kathy’s Life a sweet story with another really good message Ellie was a good friend to Kathy and Kathy helped Ellie too 4 stars

    I found these three stories although not read during the holidays sweet and touching Although I have to admit it wasn't Lurlene McDaniel at her best Since there were three stories made to fit into a 255 page each story was at least 80 which didn't leave much room to elaborate My favorite story was Kathy's Life I felt that was the most touching of all to give up your son so he could have a better life no matter how much you want to keep him The other two stories were just okay for me For Last Dance I was so sure that Doug was going to die because I looked for a deeper meaning in Brenda's wish on a star But I was wrong Don't get me wrong I didn't want the guy to die but I felt that the ending for Last Dance was too sudden and nothing really happened I will most likely pick up this book again during the holidays just for some holiday hope It was a great and fast readRating93100

    These stories were beautifully written and showed that even though life can seem tough sometimes all you need is to believe and hope I feel like I really needed to read these right now Loved them

    Overall I liked it I'm not that big of a fan of it being chopped into 3 different stories However I enjoyed each story individually Each one had characters that a reader can empathize with
