North Pole High: Rebel Without A Claus
Blurb from the book:
MEET SIXTEEN YEAR OLD CANDYCANE CLAUS. She's the most popular girl at North Pole High. Her father is world-famous. And every day is Christmas. What more could any girl want? BOYS! And the new boy, Rudy Tutti, is hot chocolate. But he hates anything to do with Christmas! When Candy and Rudy are forced to work together on a school Christmas-tree project, her world is turned upside down: Her grades start to suffer, she loses her taste for ice cream, and now the two North-Star-cross'd teens must contend with her overprotective father — Santa Claus — before Christmas is ruined for EVERYONE!
I would like to thank the author for providing a copy of the book for review. When I read the summary for the book I was excited because the summary was great and I love a good Christmas book! When I began reading though, I was highly disappointed by the cheesy details of the novel. The chef to the Claus family was a penguin named Chefy and a high school teacher was a polar bear named Mr. Polar Bear! What took the cake for me was one of the main character's names was Rudy Tutti!! All I could think of when I read that was 'fresh and fruity' from IHOP. These details made it difficult for me to enjoy the book and I found myself working to read it. Not exactly how I like my reading to go. Although the premise of the book was a good one, the details were too distracting for me to enjoy it. Two stars.
You can pick this book via Amazon.
