"Quincy is an average artsy high school girl who one day encounters Cupid, a hot transfer student. He has his clever eye on her, and slowly brings her into his world-which includes family members who have nothing in common except for antlers and jobs in delivery services. As Quincy gets further into the mystery of her connection with Cupid, she has to wrestle with conflicting love interests while dealing with her own unexpected set of antlers. Jean, illustrator for the Miss Peregrine's graphic novel series, proves herself one of the first American cartoonists to truly capture the feel of Japanese manga; the book is barely distinguishable from its Japan-made counterparts. The pacing and length are spot-on for the story's scope, and the artwork features attractive character designs, most notably for people of color (including Quincy, who's African-American). This fluffy, sweet one-shot is well worth picking up for anyone interested in manga romance or an African-American lead."―Publishers Weekly
About the Author
Cassandra Jean, artist behind the lush pages of Beautiful Creatures, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and Hollow City, returns with a sweet tale of her own. She is a freelance illustrator and comic artist who spends her days toiling with a pen in her hand, and her faithful dog sleeping at her feet. The radio is always on and Gatorade is a constant source of power!

From antlers to making it possible to travel anywhere in the world, everything that Quincy learns about totally made sense for this book. Even down to the Christmas wish Cupid was granted, and Quincy's all the sudden sprouted antlers. Well that part was strange for her for most of the story. If it hadn't been for her reoccurring dream she's had since she was little girl every Christmas Eve, things may have been harder for her to accept.
I enjoyed the unique YA twist Cassandra Jean put on Santa and his reindeers. This diverse group of characters are fabulous. It was fun getting to know all of them, especially Cupid and Quincy. This book will definitely have you falling in love with the Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, and even Kris Kringle himself. I loved that the reindeer were a mix of boys and girls. I was fascinated w/ their origin on how they came to be. I'm now looking at Santa and his reindeer in a whole new way.
Reindeer Boy is the perfect Christmas read! It has the right amount of humor, romance, and some great illustrations. Even though this story focused on Cupid and Quincy, I'm left wanting to know more about some of the characters. I'll definitely be re-reading this one every holiday season. I'm hoping that this is not a stand alone, but the first in a series.
