A book to remind us of the giving spirit of the holidays. Impoverished Rico teams up with affluent Zan in an enlightening journey which showcases the detriments of living “paycheck to paycheck.” In classic Nic Stone style we are introduced to a host of diverse and supportive characters that make this work sing. Stone touches on absurdity, romance, and generosity of spirit, leaving the reader not with a bitter taste of the unfairness of it all, but rather a belief in the possibility of our actions being the means for change. ~ Reviewed by Dous Madany
