really liked it
Read from November 05 to December 24, 2011

The story that was the original inspiration for the film "It's a Wonderful Life." The story certainly lacks most of the details of the film, as well as the bulk of its emotional impact, but it was still fun to read and to find little similarities here and there... Also, the illustrations were beautiful.

A fun quote...

"After all, the place you grew up in was the one spot on earth where you could really feel at home." (Currently experiencing this sentiment firsthand while home for the holidays...)
