Dilly can't believe her eyes. That new kid, Gedion, is shoplifting from her family's store, and Dilly's mom is letting it happen. Just because Gedion's family is struggling financially doesn't mean that her parents have to let him get away with it. But as soon as Dilly tells on Gedion, she realizes that some things are better left unsaid. Particularly since it means Gedion's father has to give back some groceries in order to pay for the chocolate bars his son has stolen.

Dilly wants to make up for her mistake and comes up with the perfect idea: recreating a wonderful Christmas for Gedion and his parents, just like the ones Gedion's father said they used to have in the old country. enlisting the help of her best friends, Dilly soon discovers that the whole community wants to be involved--but has the party become too big? And will they be able to raise all the money they need without Dilly having to dip into her own savings for that very special pair of skates she's been yearning for?

With its zany cast of characters, smart and spunky heroine, and generous dose of holiday spirit, this book is sure to be a favourite for years to come.
