"The Christmas Sweater" by Glenn Beck

Although it was the week after Christmas and I thought of "The Christmas Sweater" as a Christmas story, I decided to pick it up and see what it was all about. I absolutely fell in love with this story! I am now a fan of Glenn Beck too, seeing as this story he tells is based on his life.

If you've ever thought back on the way you took things for granted as a child, as you can only see clearly once you are an adult, you will be able to relate. Eddie, the main character of the story, deals with a lot of trauma as a young boy, which culminates in his feeling as if no one can relate to him and what he is going through. It takes quite a wake-up call to make Eddie realize what he needs to appreciate.

Glenn Beck has changed his life story slightly, but it will bring you to tears as you feel for the character based on him. I would highly recommend this book, it makes you realize that a gift can take you back in time, especially a sentimental gift. This is a fast read, and it makes a great gift too, pick it up now!
