MEET SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD CANDYCANE CLAUS. She's the most popular girl at North Pole High. Her father is world-famous. And every day is Christmas. What more could any girl want? BOYS! And the new boy, Rudy Tutti, is hot chocolate. But he hates anything to do with Christmas!

When Candy and Rudy are forced to work together on a school Christmas-tree project, her world is turned upside down: Her grades start to suffer, she loses her taste for ice cream, and now the two North-Star-cross'd teens must contend with her overprotective father — Santa Claus — before Christmas is ruined for EVERYONE!

Inky's Blurbings:
This is a book that can be described in three words. Laugh. Out. Loud. Seriously! It's like this big Christmas spoof and nearly everything in this book is a PUN of some Christmas element. I had a lot of fun getting into this one. Totally a book to get you in the holiday season. Hence, a Christmas Eve review!

Candy, was a pretty hilarious narrator. She's sweet and funny and a bit sarcastic. She was a total laugh. I can't say that I really bonded or connected with her anyway, but I had lots of run reading from her perspective as she dealt with the horrible things coming her way. It wasn't hard to get into her voice and follow the story. She'll definitely keep your interest with her narrative. The supporting characters were very well done. I enjoyed them, and despite the easy predictability of them, it was totally fun to have them along for the ride.

However, I do think the writing was a little shaky. Oh it was descriptive and not too confusing, but I think that the main issue for me was the texting lingo woven in. Lol's and OMG's were use quite frequently. Not to mention, the first 1/3 of the book, they are heheheing and hahahaing and hohohoing too just about EVERYTHING. Um. Enough laughter. Please!

But, despite that, this book totally made me laugh with the hilarity of the Christmas puns. And I do have to admit that Rudy is a darling, hot boy. It was a very complex relationship but totally adorable. Nothing says problem like a big jolly man to get in the way of your new crush.
