Wishin' and Hopin' by Wally Lamb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Cute Christmas tale in the vein of A Christmas Story. This centers around the fictional character of Felix Funicello (supposed cousin of Annette Funicello) a fifth grader at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parochial school. Felix has to contend with the school snob, a new student who happens to be a hot and sassy Russian girl, and his best friend who is going through puberty. The class is assigned a major part in the school Christmas program and shenanigans ensue leading up to the big night.
Very funny read that I thought was at times laugh out loud funny. It wasn't as "Christmassy" as I expected, but was still a great read for the holidays!
