Secret Santa is something I always enjoy doing with my class or a group of friends around Christmas time. At North Ridge High School, a school- wide game of Secret Santa leads a group of teens into romantic mishaps. Noelle is positive her gifts are from her crush. While Froggy, the school geek, thinks the game is the perfect way to get Celia to fall for him, but there's just one problem. Celia, starts to develop feelings for Jake, the bad boy, thinking her gifts are from him. It's a wild roller coaster of emotions, leading up to the Winter Dance, where secret santas are finally revealed. Although, yes, I enjoyed the book and the plot was very cute, there wasn't anything special about the characters or the plot. There's the school geek who ends up falling in love with the popular girl. It's been used a million times! What about Noelle? The hopeless romantic who thinks her love life should be like a fairytale. Oh, and of course, the stereotypical bad boy, Jake. There was really nothing amazing or memorable about these characters. However, all in all, the way Sabrina James wrote the story is so light and amusing that it's worth a read. If you're looking for a nice, little book to read over the holidays, "Secret Santa" is your choice!
