Ruth usually spends Christmas curled up on her parents’ sofa, watching feel-good movies whilst being fed festive food and drink until she can no longer move. But Ruth’s perfect Christmas is shattered when her mum receives a DIY-induced injury and Ruth is forced to take over the preparations.
Shopping. Cooking. A house full of hyped-up kids.
Christmas may no longer be the most wonderful time of the year.

The story deals with those family situations that can, and often do happen, during the holidays. Witty and in some instances, unfortunately true. Anyone who has had to deal with family during the holidays can relate to this story. However, it is not a story for children. It also deals with some adult situations and there is a bit of foul language scattered here and there. There isn't a lot of this but some people may find it offensive. The characters were well developed. You can clearly picture them through the author's words. Approx 60 pages long. Takes place in England so there are some words and phrases that are specifically British. I enjoyed this bok and would read more by this author.
Tried too hard to funny. Mostly about adult sibling rivalery, parents playing favorites. A daughter resenting helping out her injured mother at Christmas, a lazy boyfriend, an obnoxious Aunt and children without disclipine and manners. The list made by the daughter was childish and inane. Short story, pretty well edited. Inane, no adult themes, cursing, violence or religion. AD
