Megan Gallagher's father is head Santa at the local department store, her mother serves red-and-green dinners at Christmastime (green mashed potatoes and red applesauce are on one menu) and her older sister wears a different Christmas pin every day of her college vacation. Megan, known to her parents as the Scrooge of Lilac Lane, is none too thrilled about being coopted to play Sparkle the head elf to Daddy's Santa, but she's plenty perky all the same, using the holiday season to snag a boyfriend and help a homeless boy. Despite some subversive moments, this one is essentially all sunshine and light. Ages 8-12. (Oct.)

I read the book Confessions of a Reluctant Elf. It's about a girl named Megan, who's dad is a Santa Claus at a department store. Megan is an elf at the same department store. Megaan and her dad meet a kid named Grady. Later in the story, Megan finds out that Grady lives in the department store. I liked the book becausde it was realistic, creative, and well-written. I think thet anyone who reads this book will like it.
