Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"Sami's Christmas Wish List" is a powerfully inspirational short story. If you think you are all alone and no one cares about you, read this story and discover your FAMILY. This is a must stocking stuffer. I have read all of these books and highly recommend them. PJ Sharon takes teens dealing with real life issues that can isolate and lead many down a dark road, and writes stories that inspire, motivate, make you laugh, and make you cry, but are always a fun and enjoyable adventure.
I don't read much YA, but was given an early review copy of this book, which I ended up reading in one quick sitting. I was impressed by the thoughtful nature of the story, the prose, and how well the author handled the very sensitive topic and consequences of teen pregnancy/abortion. When we first meet Sami, she is struggling with high school, the outlook of her future, and self-doubt/guilt about her choice to terminate her pregnancy. Enter Travis, the college student with his own unhappy past, but who has chosen to pursue a path of helping others rather than rebel. The sweet romance develops naturally, with each character helping the other grow/mature in some fundamental way. The book balances adult-level introspection with teen-level action and thought. As a parent, it also made me reevaluate how I relate to my young teens. While this is not a lighthearted or lightning-paced story, it is thought-provoking and spiritual without being preachy. I'd recommend it to readers who enjoy sweet romance sprinkled with realistic life-lessons.
