i read it in 90 minutes. i liked the book, and it was fun to read.you'll love it! but the bad thing was everything that happened was pretty obvious, so like if you guessed people's secret santas you probly guessed it right. if you want something kid appropriate for christmas you should read this book.

Confessions of a Bitter Secret Santa By: Lara Bergen This is about a girl named Noel and in her class her best friend Claire decides to have a class room secret Santa. Claire gets Noels crush! Well Noel REALLY wants her crush Nick but who does she get? The new girl Mia, Noel thinks she's stuck up and doesn't care about anyone but her self. But at the end Noel discovers that Mia is nothing like she thought. To go secret Santa shopping with Claire, they went to Target. Also they had to decorate the persons locker at school. And the last place is Noels home. It takes place all through December. The meaning of the story is don't judge people on the outside and you can give them a chance. Especially if you're the new kid. No one likes to be judged on what they were, what they like and even who they hangout with. I personally liked this book is because its what I like to read about. I enjoy these kinds of books! I connected to this book because I used to be like Noel and judge people myself. My best friend now wasn't my friend in the past. But now she's my best friend. I tell her everything! Another way is I know a lot of people move. To a new state, town, and school. I also know those new kids are judged. Its not right. You shouldn't do that. Cause think if you were the new kid would you liked to be judged? Right, you wouldn't so don't do it to other people.

This book was a little to sassy and snappy for me, but it had a pretty good lesson in it though. I defintily reack amend this book for people who feel like Scrooge this Christmas.

Well the story is pretty good but I'm not sure if this would be a book I would read again though. It was an ok book I would recommend it because of the comedy in it but the story line isn't that great it's basically about the main character Noel being the other character Mia's secret santa but there's some other stuff it the book that makes it interesting and makes you want to keep reading it! I must say I did enjoy the book but I may not read it again only because it's some what boring I would mainly recommend the book around the holidays because if you read it around the holidays it gives you that heart warming Christmas spirit feeling! But if you read the book and it's not Christmas yet then you definitely could not wait til Christmas!

I am still reading this book but it is suprising and very unike. it is a good book if you like to just sit down and read to have fun. The story just pulls you in to make you not want to stop. Even though it is not christmas time it is still a good book for a good rlacsing time to read a book that is amost realalistic.
