Got a fun review from VOYA that I thought I’d share:

“Fans of holiday movies, rom-coms, and “All I Want for Christmas Is You” will enjoy My New Crush Gave to Me.” -VOYA

VOYA’s full review is below!!

Author: Shani Petroff

Publisher: Swoon Reads/Feiwel & Friends
Pages: 214
Price (Paperback): $10.99
Publication Date: October 2017
ISBN (Paperback): 9781250130327

High school junior Charlotte “Charlie” Donovan pursues Operation Secret
Santa to win over the senior she thinks is the perfect guy, Teo Ortiz.
Charlie needs a date for Noelle’s big Christmas party. She also wants to
fill the emptiness caused by a breakup and by her single mother being
too busy for her after a promotion at the hospital. An over-scheduler
whose pet peeve is lateness, Charlie works as co-editor-in-chief of the
student newspaper where J.D. Ortiz—who happens to be Teo’s irritating
cousin—is her photography editor. Charlie strikes a deal with J.D. to
help her win over Teo. After spending so much time with J.D., however,
her goals for holiday happiness shift.
Petroff’s newest novel
will put readers into the Christmas spirit as easily as the costume
Charlie is tricked into wearing for a caroling party. Fans of holiday
movies, rom-coms, and “All I Want for Christmas Is You” will enjoy My
New Crush Gave to Me.
From the holiday sweater cover to the multitude of
eggnoggy details, the tone of the book is fun—with a tinge of
melancholy at the possibility that everyone else’s Christmas is better
than yours. While some readers may find Charlie rigid and selfish, she
is a unique character who grows to realize that not everything can be
measured and categorized. Supported by a memorable cast of characters,
Petroff’s festive story will have readers baking gingerbread cookies and
bunuelos at any time of year.
—Amy Cummins.
