*This book is part of my POPSUGAR 2015 Reading Challenge*
Synopsis from Amazon:
Top Five Things That Are Ruining Chloe’s Day
5) Working the 6:30 a.m. shift at GoodFoods Market
4) Crashing a cart into a customer’s car right in front of her snarky coworker Sammi
3) Trying to rock the “drowned rat” look after being caught in a snowstorm
2) Making zero progress with her crush, Tyson (see #3)
1) Being accused—along with her fellow teenage employees— of stealing upwards of $10,000
Chloe would rather be anywhere than locked in work jail (aka the break room) with five of her coworkers . . . even if one of them is Tyson. But if they can band together to clear their names, what looks like a total disaster might just make Chloe’s list of Top Ten Best Moments.
It’s been way too long since I’ve read a book for my POPSUGAR reading challenge so I’m glad I finally got around to picking up this book. I picked this book based on it’s cover, apparently. Honestly, I no longer remember what I liked about it but I liked the book itself so it’s fine.
This was a typical, short YA novel that had a Breakfast Club vibe. Chloe, along with five of her other coworkers that are all around her age, are forced to stay late after work because someone accused them of stealing money that was supposed to be donated to those in need.
Through this unfortunate situation these six kids get to know each other, learning about their pasts, families, and school life. They realize they’re not as different from each other as they once thought and that maybe instead of just being coworkers, they could be friends too.
Overall, this book was cute. It had a good amount of diversity amongst the characters, which I really liked. And there was little bit of romance, a lot of friendship bondings, and a plot twist that you’ll see coming but is still interesting. Will I read this again? No, probably not. Did I enjoy it? Sure did.
If you’re looking for a quick, fun read this is the perfect book for you.
Borrow or Buy: Borrow. It’s a cute, fun read but not one you’ll want to reread.
I keep hearing that being a geek is cool now, but I’m not sure the rest of the world has gotten the memo.
