During Thanksgiving holiday Charlie's house will be crowded. Mom and Dad are a little stress because of this. Charlie is expected to be a good host, and he know this is gonna be challenging. But when they ask Charlie to share his room with his cousin Chip, this is just plain insane!

Now Charlie has to write a personal definition of family for a school assignment. That could be so hard when your big brother teases you, your little sister bugs you, and you have to share your room for two days with the most annoying boy in the world! Charlie is really having problems feeling inspired... Family seems to be a big pain in the neck.

But all this difficult situations will be the opportunity for other surprisingly good arise. His siblings will be a great support, his uncle a lot of fun, and the food delicious (not the Brussels sprouts, of course!)

Family can be complicated some times, but it's good to be surrounded by people you love.

Great story to read next Thanksgiving holiday!
