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

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
