Josie loves Christmas, especially making memories with her dog Clementine volunteering at the children's hospital. Oscar's parents are always fighting and it breeds his dislike for Christmas even more. Gabby seems to have it all, but the truth is that her family doesn't have much money and she has a medical problem that causes seizures. These are three very different people, so it's interesting to see them interact with each other.

Oscar is forced to volunteer at the hospital Josie volunteers at, but he isn't much help. Instead, he's a grump who makes Josie's time there frustrating, even though it's something she loves. Gabby wants to keep her epilepsy a secret, but what happens when Oscar and Josie discover Gabby in the hospital getting checkups? What happens when Clementine goes missing and the Christmas festival Josie's been working hard to put on is canceled?

There's a lot going on in this, but it's done well. The story is packed with emotion and holds your attention the whole way through. I like seeing Oscar open up after witnessing so many ill children. It makes him realize that everyone has problems and some have it worse than others. CLEMENTINE FOR CHRISTMAS will get you in the Christmas spirit and lift your heart as these three children come together to make things right.

Final Verdict: This is perfect for fans of Christmas, dogs, and friendship. It's heart-warming and perfect for those who might be going through a difficult time.
