Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
Samantha thinks that Winter break is supposed to be all about romance, but she is stuck spending hers in a Vermont Inn with her dad, brother, and impossibly perfect new stepmom. Sam is determined to stay indoors and sulk—until she meets Drew. A blond, beautiful skier, Drew shows Sam how to conquer the slopes and how to kiss, but is Drew really the boy who can melt Sam's heart, or is there someone else at the lodge she should be kissing? Eric is also a helper at the lodge, and Sam finally realizes what is important in a boy and a person, and her vacation life turns around for the better. This is a good story because it truly picks up a piece of a young girl's life experiences. The family relationships also get better throughout the story, providing a fairly realistic experience in the story. There is a nice cover and easy-to-read format. The book lists other "Point Books," along with other series, and information about the author in the back of the book. Overall this is a good book. Reviewer: Naomi Butler
School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up- Sam, 15, is not looking forward to winter break. She is stuck with her dad, brother, and new stepmom at a Vermont inn for a ski vacation but she doesn't ski. She would rather be home with her latest crush, who doesn't show the slightest interest in her, and her best friend, Phoebe. Instead she has to watch her dad and the perfectly perky Kathy together. She spends the first miserable day in the lodge by the fire. Then she meets a hot ski instructor, Drew, and decides to give the sport a chance. After a day on the slopes and a night of drinking in the hot tub, Drew turns his attention to Sam and she melts. But his intentions are not so pure, and she refuses to lose her virginity yet, especially to a ski instructor who only reads Sports Illustrated . She realizes that there might be more to Eric, kind son of the inn owner whom she catches sketching her. Sam and her friends are typical teen novel characters, and the plot moves along like a made-for-TV drama. Average fare for girls who want a light read to curl up with on a cold winter night.-Julianna M. Helt, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA

    cute winter romance

    Sam's having a rough time of things. Her father just remarried a much younger woman and they are all together on the honeymoon in snowy Vermont. They're spending the time (together with her brother) skiing. Sam has no desire to hang out with her new stepmother, but instead might let loose herself and find her first kiss on the slopes. After a morning of sitting in the lodge, she tags along with some girls her brother met that morning. She heads to the slopes for the first time. While she does fall, she gets some private time with the mega hot ski instructor Drew. Could he be the guy she lets loose with or will someone else catch her eye?

    I was surprised to open this book and find VT as the setting. Since I was born there, I <3 reading books about it. Plus it's a cute story that makes me want to sit in front of the fire and reading while drinking cocoa and watching bit fat snowflakes fall softly.

    Leaves some open questions...

    I liked the story of the book and all, but there were a few things that were not summed up at the end.

    It is an okay book and it feels very real since the characters appear that they could be real.

    However, I am left wondering if there could possibly be a sequel?!

It is sure to entertain any reader. <BR/><BR/>After her father marries a bubbly new wife, Samantha finds herself dragged to Vermont for winter break. As if her father's new marriage weren't enough to deal with, there was also the fact that she couldn't ski at all. So when she decides to take lessons one day, it doesn't hurt that her instructor, Drew, is a major hottie. And not only that, but he seems to have a special interest in Sam. <BR/><BR/>But suddenly Drew doesn't seem so interested in Sam anymore. And what's with that guy Eric who seems to keep showing up? <BR/><BR/>This novel is a very good read. The reader is taken to a world of winter wonderlands and holiday festivities. It's sure to leave all readers satisfied.

    Sweet and Fun

    It's winter break, and Samantha, Jeremy, her dad, and her new step-mom, Kathy are taking a vacation in Vermont. All Sam wants to do is relax and find a cute guy to kiss. But things are turning out so perfect. The inn they are staying at has no people that are her age with the exception of the owner's strange son Eric. Her brother is immature, her best friend Phoebe is acting strange and distant, and she and Kathy can't manage to get along. It seems that Sam will have to spend winter break sulking in her room with only her books and cards for company. When she does decide to venture outside and join a skiing class, she meets Drew, a blond skier who brags he's been to the Olympic Trials. Sam's first impression is that he looks like a Ken doll and that he is way out of her league, but she soon finds out he's more than interested in her. After some very excellent kissing, she realizes what a jerk he is because he only wants to get into her pants. Through the course of her very short relationship with Drew, she makes friends with Liz, Heidi, and Deana. She also befriends a girl from Texas named Ashley whose favorite phrase is 'tote hilare'. After running into Eric, the inn keeper's son, several times, she realizes that she really likes him, and things go on from there. I really enjoyed reading this book. I was glad it wasn't completely a romance novel, but I was disappointed that Sam and her friend, Phoebe didn't make up their friendship by the end of the story, but it's refreshing that everything doesn't turn out perfectly. I was also glad that Sam was able to figure out what she wanted in her life. The cover is really cute too! This book is perfect for reading by the fire in the dead of winter. I recommend this book for fans of the Summer Boys series by Hailey Abbott because it's basically the same idea in the opposite season.

    skier vs sketcher? who will take home the lady.

    In my story there is a girl her name is Samantha Levy and she goes by Sam or secretly goes by levy when she talks to herself. Well she lives in Florida when all of a sudden her dad wants to get remarried. So she and her brother go to the inn with Kathy, her new step mom, and her dad. Well Sam does not like her new step mom named Kathy. When her best friend phoebe and she make a plan that she will get a boyfriend. When she is up in the mountains she starts to fall in love with a skier and that he is all over her. But will she still be in love with him when she figures what he is all about. I liked this book because it reminded me of a soap opera. It has so much romance in it that it is good. But the end just drops off after she figures out that she is in love with one of them.I liked this book also because it reminded me of a normal life. It is complete romance.
