OK, so maybe I had a different reaction because I grew-up in a place that had real snow and real snow days, but this book just did not work for me.

-How are these the 'luckiest kids in the world' when they never get a snow day, even in a blizzard?
-Why are the parents not upset that their children are being used as pawns in a dangerous competition between Annie and Rhodes?
-Why are the parents going out on such a day?
-Why is no one ploughing the streets?
-How does the superintendent think that the teachers and support staff are supposed to get to work?

-and REALLY why not just HAVE A SNOW DAY?!?

When people live in snowy areas, they need to shovel snow, and walk through it, and dress in layers, and all types of other extra tasks. One of the benefits (among tobogganing, snow people and snow angel making, hot chocolate afterward, etc.) is having snow days! This book just totally missed the whole point of snow and snow days. UGH!
