Toby McGarvey returns from his first semester as a freshman at New York University, home for the holidays to the small town of Hopely, Minnesota. He expects to find Hopely preserved as he left it, but now in awe of him. A rude awakening: His girlfriend has dumped him for his brother, and his dad has published in the town paper the letters he wrote home, exaggerating his adventures in the big city and sneering about his hometown to cover up his profound homesickness. Toby is in for a discomfiting but humorous journey toward rediscovering his home. Can he rise above his boiling anger as he watches his brother's demonstrative affection toward his old girlfriend? Is he falling in love with his eccentric old grade school teacher? Can the secret life of Christmas be just as good as or even better than the sentimental Christmas everybody's supposed to want?
