Santa Claus and Little Sister

Adult
“Santa Claus and Little Sister” is autobiographical in nature, selfishly therapeutic in design, and hard proof that we cannot control our future regardless how hard we try. This is a journey of one young optimistic East Coast teacher who taught at New Beginnings, a Los Angeles placement home for at-risk, mentally and physically abused, abandoned, gang, and socially-emotionally disturbed girls.

"SANTA CLAUS AND LITTLE SISTER"

"This book was extremely informative and took the reader to places and experiences that are not normally encountered. The author Dr. Brian Snow, reveals a complete underbelly of society that most people are not aware or their casualties. This book was extremely moving and makes you want to do something about making changes in these childrens lives.

I would totally recommend this book to anyone who is going into education, social work or volunteering with under-privileged children."

*****

"If Dr. Brian G. Snow's purpose for writing Santa Claus and Little Sister was to make his readers feel like crying and rushing out to do good in the world at the same time, he certainly achieved his goal. "

Reviewer: Flamingnet

*****

"Wow this book was so moving. I am so happy I read it. I hate what happened to those girls and I was so sad that Lupe took her life. I am glad that everything worked out for Brian and Maria. Its a beautiful tragic story."

Amanda - Goodreads

*****
"Powerful, true, dark and yet inspiring. This is an important read. Can't wait for the edited version!"
Beth - Goodreads

"Santa Claus and Little Sister" takes its title from a sad poem found in Lupe's papers. The highly well-written text conveys Dr. Snow's often self-endangering activities as he involves himself in the lives of his students to protect them as well as ensure them a good education."
Reviewer: Alice D. - Readers Favorite

****
"This story was full of surprises. The main character starts off as naive and you think he realizes this later in the story but at the end, he is thrown by another surprise. It's a modern day story, very real feeling and funny, too."
AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL EXPERT REVIEWER
*****

"This is a quick read and feels like a memoir/biography. Very entertaining and interesting....I liked the story.."

AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL EXPERT REVIEWER

******

"Highly Recommend! This is a wonderfully uplifting book that shows the old addage "you can't judge a book by it's cover" is true. The characters seem 'real' and not flat. Real people living real life. Sometimes a life is not so pretty, but the love and caring always shines through."


"Inspirational and captivating - highly recommendedI found this extraordinary story inspirational and absorbing. The author tactfully incorporates the serious and unfortunately current subject matter of teenage suicide in a compelling and heartfelt story. I found myself laughing, crying, and cheering for the unlikely group of misfit heroes. I hope they turn this book into a movie. I highly recommend it!"


"Wow, this story just grabs you! Heart and mind! It begins so innocent and pastoral and before you know it you're headlong into the frightening and troubled world of young girls on the streets of LA. Such an important work. Everyone must read!"
-Barnes & Noble Reviews

"This book was excellent. I read it through in 2 sittings and I plan to re-read it very soon. It is a heartwrenching story, that made me happy, sad, mad and just wanting to help the "victims" of abuse. I would highly recommend this book to any adult, but especially to those who are teachers or who work with
children in any way."
