North Pole Reform School--Review

Hello you guys. It's only a couple of days 'til Christmas so it is but fitting that a Christmasy book appears on my blog. That said, welcome to North Pole Reform School's stop on my blog!

                            Title: North Pole Reform School              Author: Jaimie Admans      

                           Purchase the book on: Amazon 

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 atschool, 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.

If you're looking for a good but quirky kind of Christmas Story, then North Pole Reform School is certainly the book for you.

Set in a modern world where Santa, the Elves and the Reindeers are all real, this book will remind you to take things with a grain of salt--to take things easy, and remember the value of family, love, friends, and Christmas.

Mistletoe Bell, alongside some other people wake up in the North Pole. This is because Mistletoe, alongside these new "friends" of hers, do not believe in the Spirit and magic of Christmas. Little did they know that everything they know about Christmas is not enough, and that there's so much more to learn.

I really like how fun and easy to read this book is. It's not your usual sappy Christmas story (not that there's anything wrong with that, but, you know...), and it's something that you will definitely enjoy. Zombies love Christmas? Who'd have thought, right?

I guess the main message of this book is to give Christmas a chance. Give new people in your life a chance. Give yourself a chance to see things differently, and to try out something new. And most importantly, realize the value of love, friendship and family--because these are the things that make life worthwhile.

Great book. Best served with hot chocolate sprinkled with mallows on top ;)
