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.

**And don't forget the Goodreads giveaway is still going on**
