Lara hates living on the planet Brax. The school and work days are longer, her family can’t make enough money, her Braxan house "ticks like a clock whenever it’s windy outside," and to top it all off, there’s no Christmas on Brax. But when a classmate teaches Lara about the Braxan holiday of Jibblewooch, Lara thinks she sees a way to turn her family’s luck around.
