What You're Reading, volume 4

A 6th grader at McKnight Middle School turned in this book review of The Winter of Candy Canes by Debbie Viguie:

What is this book about?
"Candace Thompson applies for a winter job at "The Zone." She qualifies for the job and becomes an elf. A job as an elf sounds easy, but it's not. On the end of her shift one day, 3 little boys attack her and leave. Candace is rushed to the hospital and is badly damaged. As she goes through her wild adventures, she discovers the true meaning of Christmas. For that winter, she is known as Candy Cane."

What did you like/dislike about it?
"I enjoy how Debbie Viguie makes her story so realistic! She puts in perfect details that go with the plot of the story. Now I look forward to reading more of her books."

Who would enjoy reading it?
"I personally think pre-teens or young teenagers would enjoy. They will be able to connect well."
