Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-10-Noelle has a crush on Charlie. Ryan has a crush on Noelle. Celia has a crush on Jake. Froggy has a crush on Celia. David has a crush on Shawna. Shawna has a crush on Connor . . . and it all comes to a head over an ill-conceived "Secret Santa" game in which the principal of North Ridge High School requires all students to participate. Of course, all the right guys end up with all the right girls, but it's hard to keep them all straight, or to care. The book features sensitive nerds and evil rich girls-straight out of central casting-along with big misunderstandings and clichés galore, and labels and brands and performers so up-to-the-minute that it reads like an advertising supplement. The language is tame, the romance is limited to a few kisses, and other than extreme conspicuous consumption, the worst thing that happens is a shoving match between two girls at a dance. Not destined to be a classic, but there's probably an audience for this out there somewhere.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
