I may never find the mall of my dreams, but I am going to Disneyland. In December. When Aunt Hannah's nieces and nephews turn ten years old, she takes us for a five-star holiday. This year it's my turn! I’m ten-and-a-half and ready to go.
Emily is horrified when Aunt Hannah tells her that for their holiday they are heading north to a housewarming party at an isolated cabin with no indoor plumbing or electricity. When they arrive, it is even worse than she imagined. The snow is deep. The work is hard. Aunt Hannah is bossy. And Blossom, the girl her age, wants her to play ice hockey on a nearby lake. Is it possible that this could turn into the five-star holiday Emily had dreamed of?
