    Rebecca,
    The author's name is Nancy Ruth Patterson. I came across the book through a fellow teacher. She had ordered a class set from Scholastic. It is about a girl named Megan who buys an antique milkshake cup at an auction. Megan and her grandmother secretly call it the Christmas cup. They put money in it to buy a gift for someone who had been good to them during the past year. It was a secret between the two of them. Megan gets into some trouble involving a Mennonite (similar to Amish) and realizes people are different and is ashamed of what she has done. She also spends some time with an elderly lady. Finally at the end of the book, Nannie and Megan decide who to buy a gift for and leave it at their doorstep in the middle of the night. It has a great Christmas lesson behind it--giving is better than receiving. I know you can buy it on Amazon. You can search by typing in the author's last name. Hope you enjoy it!
