Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Jerry Spinelli and Gary D. Schmidt, this heartfelt coming-of-age story will make you believe in the power of second chances.

Eleven-year-old Sam Brattle is already having the worst Christmas ever - his dad's bakery is going bankrupt and his mom is spending the holidays with her new family. To make things worse, Nickel Bay Nick, the anonymous Good Samaritan who leaves hundred dollar bills around Nickel Bay at Christmastime, is a no-show, so this year the rest of the town is as miserable as Sam.

When he stumbles upon the secret identity of this mysterious do-gooder, Sam is stunned to learn that he might now be his town's only hope. But before he can rescue Nickel Bay, Sam has to learn the skills of a spy and unravel some even darker secrets that will change his life forever.

Layered & Entertaining

LOVED IT! This is a GREAT book with amazing narration. If you like this book as much as I did I recommend Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
