Super fast and fun read, with some great laughs. A real page-turner and perfect to get you into the holiday spirit. My wife has it now and is also enjoying it.
Those scenes really take away from the fun atmosphere of the book. Otherwise it's a fun and quick read.
Candycane Claus has every reason to be happy. she is popular, lives in a place where everyday is Christmastime, has an equally popular boyfriend and is the daughter of Santa Claus himself. but the arrival of the new boy Rudy Tutti upsets her winter wonderland in so many ways. plus his presence may possibly ruin Christmas for the first time ever in recorded history.
author Candace Jane Kringle's memoir captures the spirit, colors, flavors and magic of everyone's favorite time of the year - Christmas! it transports us to an enchanting world where polar bears, penguins, elves, seals, fairies and humans live in an endless season of joy and good cheer. it also introduces the reader to unconventional recipes and confections, anthropomorphic creatures, North Pole fashion and conventions and a side to old Saint Nick that few have ever heard of or known before.
engaging from the first page to the last, this book is funny, dramatic, serious at times and overall, an absolute delight! it is also very well written and has the makings of a Yuletide classic.
i enjoyed reading every word of this book and i highly recommend it to advance middle grade readers and adults as well.

+ I loved the setting. Candy canes grow wild, there's a hot chocolate pond. Reindeer poop is chocolate. Honestly, what person wouldn't want to live in such a splendiforous place? I was sucked into the North Pole immediately.
+ It wasn't instant love. In a lot of YA books I've read lately, it just takes one look and the girl is smitten. In this book, there's a bit of time for her to mull things over and decide.
+ Rudy is lovely. As are most of the other characters. Each one was described well, and the proper emotion was conveyed while reading. Santa was mean, for starters. And her best friend was a bit dramatic and moody. But each one was well represented and written.
+ Overall story and premise is adorable. I loved it.
+ The innuendos made the book even more hilarious, in my opinion.
- My one fault with this story is that the gay character's named Queero. Granted, the chef's name is Chefy. But, being LGBT, that was a bit offensive.
All that being said, I definitely recommend this book to YA readers or anyone YA+ who wants a lighthearted Christmassy read. Prepare to giggle, curl up with a glass of hot chocolate and your most favorite blanket, and enjoy the adventures of the North Pole.
Thanks to the lovely Candace Jane Kringle and Northpolehigh.com for my copy of this book!
