Story Summary

It's time for Secret Santa, renamed Secret Sharer, when the new girl from California shows up in military boots and faded cloths. Samantha, wearing the same polished Mary Jane's as everyone else, is immediately taken in by the girl's freewheeling manner and spirit but is at a loss when she discovers she is the Secret Sharer for the new girl. But friendships take hold in the most unusual circumstances.
