Lisa Atwood is spending the Thanksgiving holiday in California. But so much has happened in the last months that she can't relax and enjoy herself. Then her brother arrives with a big surprise, throwing the family into turmoil, and making Lisa question what she has to be thankful for. Stevie Lake is no longer grounded, but no one can spend time with her. Still, she ought to be thankful, right? And Carole Hanson is just beginning her punishment--no riding, no Pine Hollow--so she really doesn't feel like celebrating. The holiday spirit is in very short supply this year!
