Overview

Shantay's winter vacation is beginning along with the holiday parties, caroling, and special times with family and friends. Unfortunately, instead of enjoying the season, she is focused on purchasing a tube of "Cinnabearry" flavored lip-gloss. When the girl learns the drugstore is out of her favorite flavor, her quest becomes an obsession.
Actually, the elusive lip-gloss is the least of her problems. After witnessing an accident, she becomes caretaker of a "bad" dog. She finds herself sad and lonely when her selfishness alienates her friends, Inez and Vanessa, and also her siblings, Ricci and Clarissa. On top of this, she is confronted with a moral decision when she discovers a box of presents. Will the mounting problems have Shantay yelling, "Bah! Humbug!", or will the magic in the season gift her something more precious than a shopping cart full of presents ?

Meet the Author

Josephine Heltemes is the pen name used by Mary Trost on her series of children's books. Mary's inspiration for her stories comes from many years spent working with elementary students and her own rambunctious childhood as a middle-child in a family of eight children. She likens her method of story writing to home cooking: you open your mind, throw in a couple of ideas, put the concoction on the back-burner and wait for a story to form. Of course, disasters fit only for the trash are inevitable, but occasionally you get a tale worthy of sharing with friends. Mary lives in Vancouver, Washington. When she's not at the computer writing, she enjoys gardening, painting, bird watching and travel.
