"I hate Christmas," Earl said. He expected that would do the trick - tell most kids that and they'd get the hint. But not this little girl. (from inside cover)
This book will bring you through all emotions. What one girl does to make a down and out "bum" come to see the true meaning of christmas and God's love for him. It may also cause you to look at those down and out a little differently. I loved it!!
Big Earl gives up on God because God does not protect him like he believes that God should from big losses in life.Then he meets a sick child in a shelter and she touches his heart. Gideon the child is dying of leukemia. She gives Earl a gift and prays that he will believe. Gideon's prayer is answered and so are a lot of other prayers because of her prayer and gift to a homeless man.
