It’s the fourth Wednesday of November, and Patrick Guthrie is giving thanks. He’s giving thanks that his eight-year-old son, Braden, will finally have a procedure on his heart that will cure him of the same life-threatening condition that took Patrick’s wife several years earlier. But when Patrick suddenly loses his job teaching drama at a New York City high school, his already desperate financial situation becomes dire. Rebecca Brody, a social worker, shows up at his door with a judge’s order for him to appear before the city’s family court to determine if Patrick is financially fit, and Patrick realizes he is in danger of losing his son. Patrick knows that he must somehow make it through the holiday season to a new job waiting for him in the new year. He also knows that Ted Cake, his former father-in-law, blames Patrick so much for the death of his daughter that he, a rich and disagreeable man, is the one pushing the city to call the custody hearing and give the boy over to him. Now Patrick has only three weeks before Christmas to somehow make enough money to pay his bills, present himself to the family court as a fit father, and keep Braden in his life.
My Thoughts: I just received this book so I wasn't able to review it in time. I will post my review once I read it.

My husband and I talked about this and we agreed that I could watch it, so last Thursday night there was nothing on so I ordered it from DTV, I couldn't get past 30 minutes if that!
I was disgusted with both Channing Tatum and Matthew Mcconaughey. These two men are not only gorgeous men, they have both acted in great movies, that have made them famous. In Magic Mike, they used the F word every other word and it was ridiculous.
Matthew has been in great movies like A Time to Kill, Lincoln Lawyer, and How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days, he didn't need to lower himself to make this movie.
Channing blew onto the screen in Step Up, yet showed his softer side in Dear John, and the Vow.
While the ladies will of course cheer with the dancing . . . the language is just ridiculous.
I can't even recommend this!
