This sweet, funny holiday romance from the author of Romeo And What’s Her Name features cute boys, plenty of rom-com mishaps, and a determined heroine readers are certain to fall for.
Charlotte “Charlie” Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He’s a star athlete, a National Honor Society member, and the most popular guy in school. Plus he contributes to the school paper, where Charlie is a co-editor. Basically, he’s exactly the type of guy Charlie’s looking for. The only problem is—he barely knows she exists.
But Charlie has a plan: rig the paper’s Secret Santa and win his heart with the perfect gift. The catch? She has no idea what to get him. Enter J.D. Ortiz–Teo’s cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He’s easy going, laid back, disorganized, and spontaneous—the exact opposite
of Charlie (and Teo). But he knows what Teo wants, so she’s stuck with him.
Yet, the more time Charlie spends with J.D., the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or rather who, she wants for Christmas?
Shani Petroff’s newest young adult comedy of errors, My New Crush Gave to Me, is the perfect read for those searching for some love and laughter along with their holiday spirit.
About the Author
Ahh this book was so cute! I could tell what the ending would be — it was a little predictable, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this book at all. I really loved the writing style and the characters.
Charlie reminded me a little bit of myself. She’s someone who likes to have control of things, and she likes having a plan. It’s something that causes a lot of problems for her with people outside of her friend group, and even those in it. I love how her character grows throughout the novel. She learns how to compromise better and truly begins to listen to others and their opinions.
J. D. and Morgan were easily two characters that complimented Charlie’s well. They give her balance and depth that wouldn’t be there if there weren’t characters who didn’t understand her. I was so jealous of Morgan’s baking ability the whole book! She has some mad talent that I wish I had. Not only does she make things like cookies and cupcakes, she makes donuts and other cool desserts like that.
The plot, while predictable, was good. I liked the whole set up and the idea of a Secret Santa to win over your crush. I have never been this creative in an attempt to win someone over.
All in all, I highly recommend this one. It’s the perfect book to get you in the spirit of the holidays.
