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.
