Goodreads:  Five college friends, three men and two women, have been getting together every Thursday night to share humble meals and an abundance of laughter. But when tragedy takes one of them, leaving the others to question the fairness of life, the Thursday Night Club decides to embark on a contest in the memory of the generous spirit of their fallen brother. The objective of the contest is simple: whoever performs the kindest deed by Christmas night wins the pot – four quarters. And there are only two conditions: the benevolent deed must be anonymous, and it cannot cost a single penny to pull off.

As the four friends undertake the contest, the healing begins and they become inspired beyond their expectations. There might be a winner in this competition, but it is very clear there will be no losers.

Kritters Thoughts:  A short novella that takes the reader on a great ride in just a few pages.  Five college friends are in their senior year and the boys decide that they will try to out prank each other.  In the middle of the game, a tragedy occurs and the friends must take the game in a new direction.

Most books concentrate on one gender or another and if both genders are involved someone is in love - not so with this book, it was great to see a group of friends who were just friends and just enjoyed each other's company.  This book took me immediately back to my senior year of high school and that year where you are starting to change from a student to a full fledge adult and reminded me about the people that were there at that time.  

Steven Manchester was already an author that I completely adored and this novella is perfect to curl up with in the middle of the holiday hub bub.  If you haven't read a Steven Manchester book, try this one and then keep reading through his catalog - you won't be disappointed!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Ebook 2014 Challenge: 67 out of 100
