Andrew looks really cute on the cover. I felt bad for him that he got injured before he could race. I think that my favourite part of the book was when the Brewers and Thomases had family day and all made a family out of snow.
^I agree Virgo. I also loved that Andrew got to shine. I thought it was awful on the ghostie's part to have had him be seriously injured. I also have to say Elizabeth really does sometimes come across as a better parent in the LS than BSC. It was her idea for the indoor breakfast picnic in this and I think she even went Skiing or did some snow related activity with David Michael. Then there is the typical Emily having a cold and Nannie baby-sitting her while the others are outside on the slopes. I know Nannie said she thought she was too old and Emily too young to ski but surely once Emily was better, she could have enjoyed playing a little in the snow, yet all she did was stay in the lodge with Nannie, something she could have done in Stoneybrook! I think that also bothers me a little more now that I have read Karen's School where Emily actually interacted with Sari and finally (IMO) had some personality of her own. It would have been nice to read about her doing something at Shadow Lake. Yes, I know she took many walks with Claudia and Andrew at SL in the super special. I meant maybe there could have been one other young toddler for her to play with in this even for a few minutes. I know that is getting sort of off topic! I much preferred Karen's Snow Day as a LS wintry book and leave it at that.
You know, I've read this book a half-dozen times and it has just now occurred to me to wonder why David Michael wasn't taking skiing lessons with Karen and Andrew. Did he already know how to ski? Elizabeth the overworked single mom had taken her kids skiing before but Watson the millionaire hadn't taken his?

This is my first time, reading this book. I enjoyed reading this book. I'm shock, that Karen didn't mention about Ricky. The lodge, sounds like a nice dream lace to stay at. I'll love to visit that lodge. It was nice, Andrew was good at skiing. I agreed. They should had Emily Michelle, played with other kids or played outside, in the snow for a while. After her cold was better. I give this a four stars. I rent this book, from the library.
