Charlotte Charlie Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He s the school s star athlete, in the National Honor Society, invited to every party, contributes to the school paper (where Charlie is co-editor), and is about to be featured as One to Watch in a teen magazine basically, he’s exactly the type of guy Charlie s meant to be with. The only problem he barely knows she exists.
But Charlie is determined to be Teo’s date to the Christmas ball. And she has a plan: To rig the paper s Secret Santa so that she can win his heart with five perfect gifts. But to do that she needs help. Enter J.D. Ortiz Teo s cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He s easy going, laid back, unorganized, spontaneous, and makes a joke out of everything the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he s willing to provide insight into what Teo wants, so shes stuck with him.
Yet, the more time Charlie spends with J.D., the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or rather who, she wants for Christmas?
In this new fluffy holiday read, Charlie is an upbeat girl and everything has to be perfect for her even her date to the school dance. This book reads like an 80s teen movie in a very good way. This positive book can cure any holiday blues out there. Charlie may seem annoying at first with her rules and with being perfect but at times I even laughed when she messes up which made her relatable. Charlie is not as perfect as she seems and with help with another classmate JD, will she be able to loosen up in time for the Christmas to start? This book has some fun, teen romance and we were all rooting for the underdog. In the end, can Charlie get the perfect Christmas she wants?
Happy Reading and Holiday!
