North Pole Reform School
by Jaimie Admans
Mistletoe Bell hates Christmas. So would you if you had a name like hers. Her Christmas-mad parents make the festive season last all year, and with another Christmas looming, Mis doesn’t think she can take any more. After her carelessness causes an accident at school, it seems like things can’t get any worse.
Then she wakes up to find The Ghost of Christmases Ruined in her bedroom.
She is taken to the North Pole, to a reform school run by elves determined to make her love Christmas. Stuck in a misfit group of fellow Christmas-haters with a motley crew of the weird and even weirder, watched over by elves day and night, she doesn’t expect to meet cute and funny Luke, who is hiding a vulnerable side beneath his sarcastic exterior. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with him.
But all is not as it should be at the North Pole. A certain Mr Claus is making the elves’ lives a misery, and pretty soon Mistletoe and Luke are doing more than just learning to like Christmas.
A YA romantic comedy in which Santa is the bad guy, teaching reindeer to fly is on the curriculum, and zombies have a fondness for Christmas music.
Suitable for older teens and upwards due to bad language.
Mistletoe Bell hates Christmas. Her family loves the holiday as you can tell by her name. She wants nothing to do with the holiday at all.She ruins Christmas one to many times and gets a visit from the Ghost of Christmases Ruined which is a purple moose. She awakes to find she is in the North Pole and must take a course in the North Pole Reform School. She along with four other people have been told they have ruined Christmas and must change their ways. While the elves aren't to bad she does connect with Luke another Christmas hater. They all have jobs to help out with but they don't like the way things are going in the North Pole. Santa is a jerk, the elves treated badly and there is zombies trying to get in. They have to change their ways to get home.
I have to say this is one of my favorite books I have read this year. I laughed so much in this book. You will hate Santa in this book and you see how they he gets what is coming to him. I love what did happen to him. The elves are hilarious. You have some that are nice, some that are broken down by Santa and even a jerk elf. They all have jobs to do. The reindeer are so awesome and you even get to meet baby reindeer. Mistletoe gets to teach them to fly which really helps her spirits. This bunch goes in hating Christmas but after just visiting through the book even I got in a better holiday mood. Luke is awesome he may seem like he could be a jerk a few times but you see he is truly a great guy. I have to say I love how things turned out for him. oh and if the elves, Santa and reindeer weren't enough you get zombies!! Yes I love zombies and they have a great part to play in this book. If you want a book you will really enjoy that stands out as different and great pick this one up.
