A Goodreads user asked:
Did I read the right edition? Is the book only 182 pages long and does it end with Jonas and Gabe going down the snow hill?
Nathan It does seem like there are different versions. The one I read in 5th grade and that an English class I TA'd for included more Christmas at the end and maybe even used that word during the memory. It also gave more detail about the "stirrings" (wet dream). The one I just finished seemed incomplete.
