Overview

Top Ten Clues You're Clueless by Liz Czukas

Top Five Things That Are Ruining Chloe's Day

5) Working the 6:30 a.m. shift at GoodFoods Market

4) Crashing a cart into a customer's car right in front of her snarky coworker Sammi

3) Trying to rock the "drowned rat" look after being caught in a snowstorm

2) Making zero progress with her crush, Tyson (see #3)

1) Being accused—along with her fellow teenage employees— of stealing upwards of $10,000

Chloe would rather be anywhere than locked in work jail (aka the break room) with five of her coworkers . . . even if one of them is Tyson. But if they can band together to clear their names, what looks like a total disaster might just make Chloe's list of Top Ten Best Moments.

I couldn't stop reading this book. As an adult I can relate so much with Chloe I have been writing lists my whole life. Such a great and fun read. I will be reading the other book available as soon as I can get my hands on it. I hope Liz keep writing more books. I am a fan!!!!!

I think Chloe and I could be great friends as we have so much in common. Her love for making lists blew me out of the water, as I am the queen of list making. I have lists and then sublists for my lists with post-its being my favorite means of notation as I can easily make additions to the bottom of my original list, making it longer or branching off into another list. Chloe had lists for everything: the people she saw, what she knew, her ideas, the things in her life, anything that was important to her, she put them into a list. I could relate with Chloe as she works in a grocery store, as I also had a part-time job there. Chloe likes to have fun at work and her job is important to her. My girlfriend and I reminisce about our years working at the grocery store, our “good ole’ days”. We’d laugh at the melon thumpers but we also knew there was a time and place for fun and games. It’s the holiday season and the donation box is getting lots of attention. Being one of the largest stores, the box should be busting at the seams but with the cameras rolling when the contents of the box is finally revealed what they find inside is not what they expected. Who wants to take the blame on this one? As the suspects are rounded up and the conversation circulates, they realize they are more alike than they thought. Chloe needs to be honest with the group and that honesty is a stepping stone for the friends.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) Chloe is late to the store where she works on Christmas Eve, but she doesn’t expect to be detained after work as a suspect when someone steals some charity money from the store. Who really stole the money? And will Chloe ever make it home? This book started out okay, but I got bored. Chloe was an okay character, but I hated how she let her diabetes get so out of control! Fair enough she had an insulin pump, but the way she skipped meals, and threw away the breakfast her mother gave her, not to mention not telling anyone at work that she had diabetes was downright irresponsible. The storyline in this started out okay, but I just got bored. I liked the mystery around who had stolen the money, and that was basically what kept me reading, but the rest of the book was just dull. A handful of teens forced to stay at the supermarket where they work after hours on Christmas eve – not all that exciting unfortunately. I also wasn’t very impressed that the teens were kept behind whilst other employees were allowed to go home, when there was no proof that it was one of the teens who had stolen anything! There was some romance, but it wasn’t really developed enough for me, and it felt like a side story rather than being part of the main story. The ending was okay, but to be honest I was just glad that the mystery was solved and the book was finished. Overall; dull, 6 out of 10.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down! The characters are so real - and hilariously true to life. You can't help but fall in love with Chloe, the main character. Everyone has thought an felt like this young lady. Her obsession with lists is awesome as I totally relate. If I don't have more than one list going something is just not right in my world. And some of her top ten lists really should be considered by late night television. I recommend this book to anyone who want a fast, funny, charming escape!

This book was all kinds of cute! I read Ask Again Later early this year and really enjoyed it so I had to pick up Czukas' sophomore novel, Top Ten Clues You're Clueless. The synopsis sounded hilarious! locked in work jail? having all the supermarket to yourself? and with a couple of people you don't know and one is your crush? It was a load of fun! I loved the main protagonist, Chloe. She really stands out in terms of contemporary main characters for me. She is diabetic (and Czukas really knew her stuff, trust me, I've done research on diabetes and artificial pancreas systems for a while). She is also a notorious list maker.. i mean she is pretty obsessed with it. I loved how each chapter began with a list she either literally wrote down or made in her head. Some of those lists were hilarious and I ended up sending to my friend for some good laughter. The one I liked the most was "Top Ten Worst Mom Phrases". More than one of those applied to my mother.  The mystery element in this book, even though it was very light, was also very entertaining. I really wanted to know who stole the money and didn't suspect anyone too much. It was a great addition to a romantic contemporary. I think the whole novel centers more around the friendship forged between the six teens than the romance or the mystery. It really warmed my heart. Each character was very unique and I totally was able to tell them apart from the beginning (you know how that's sometimes hard to do?). I definitely recommend it to all contemporary fans and fans who want a light hearted read that centers more on friendship.

I believe that this book caused legit hearts in my eyes. I started it one night before bed with the intention of starting a few chapters and putting the book down and going to sleep. Less than two hours later I put it down. Because I was finished. I devoured it during a period that I was unable to get into any book I was able to inhale Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless. I related to Chloe pretty much from the first page. Chloe is a list maker and as someone who jokes that her lists have lists, I get how and why they calm her down. And being insecure makes me want to write more lists, which makes me feel nerdier, which makes me write more lists…you can see my problem. –eARC 2% That part made sense to me. Chloe’s life currently does not make sense to her, her BFF has recently moved and can’t even like her posts anymore on facebook. I wanted to hug Chloe, growing up and even growing apart is scary and something as simple as a facebook like can make or break a day because you just want to know that your friend cares (even though typing that out/saying that sounds silly. It’s true.) That’s what made this book work for me, it was believable and at the heart of it was the story of a girl who was just trying to survive a day of work on Christmas Eve. I get that saying “survive a day of work” sounds like zombie’s were coming after her, but let’s be real, the day before Christmas in retail is its own version of hell. Chloe just wants to get home, and maybe see her crush for a bit. What Chloe doesn’t expect is around $10,000 to be stolen and her to be suspect. What the robber doesn’t expect is the group of misfits to band together and defend each other. People who barely acknowledged each other before hand to become friends who slowly understand each other and see that they aren’t that different ultimately. I cannot recommend this book enough because it is the type of YA everyone should read.

*Such* a cute book. I am such a fan of Liz Czukas' writing for when I wanna read something fun with humor, heart, and personality. (Which is pretty much always.) It was also a cool surprise to me to see a diabetic main character, which I haven't since the days of Stacey McGill. And there's a nice diverse cast, which brings me to something I feel like might be a Liz Czukas signature I love - letting characters say ignorant things in a way that feels realistic and inspires a conversation... like the way a lot of learning about other races and cultures actually does happen in real life. The comp "Empire Records meets Breakfast Club" kept coming back to me as I was reading, and it does indeed totally have that vibe. Czukas has totally become my go-to author for reliably fun, entertaining YA with heaps of personality, and I will 100% be buying whatever she puts out next.
