BOOKLIST, STARRED REVIEW
...a vibrant, visually exciting treatment .the upbeat tone of the writing is matched by Paschkis\' lively, jewel-like art...
Warm, lovely, homey.
Sweet and visually striking, this is a good choice both for children who celebrate these holidays and for others seeking a bridge to their culture.
A hilarious romance told from two perspectives. One a girl who is determined to show her worth and smarts. The other a boy who believes in true love and meeting that perfect someone. What happens when the two meet? Well, coffee in the face and so much more. Great teen romance. - Jessica
