Two Exes. One holiday adventure. Merry Ex-Mas?
Seventeen-year-old Lila Beckwith's parents just left for vacation, and Lila's all set to throw the holiday party of the season. But when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is melting the North Pole, he and his best friend, Tyler, take off on a runaway mission to save Santa.Lila has to get Cooper safely home before her parents get back on Christmas Eve. But the only person who can help her is Tyler's older brother, Beau — a.k.a. Lila's musician, anti-everything ex-boyfriend.
It'll take more than a Christmas miracle for Lila and Beau to overcome their differences and find their fugitive brothers. But could a journey destined for disaster help these polar opposites fall in love...all over again?
I don't understand why someone would not like this story. It is soooooooo adorable, I love to re-read it every year for christmas and it puts me in the best mood! And since christmas is just around the corner and I haven't read a new book cause I'm in finals, I thought I'd post a quick, short review of a book I've already read.
this book can be sum up in one word:
It was reeeeeaally cute, but not corny,
definitely not corny, I happen to hate corny, and I happen to
LOOOOOOVE this book.
It was a quick read,
with a lot of quick remarks from the main characters, who
actually hated eachother at the start of the book, but then are
brought together to find their little brothers, who run away together
to go save Santa from global warming.

To see how their perception of eachother and their relationship develoved was fantastic! I couldn't stop laughing or 'awww'ing at all their misadventures, and though I hated Lila for most part of the book (I might still secretly do) I was happy to read that end. She makes up for her snottiness.
Beau was by far the very best of the book. I reaaaaaaaaally loved what he did at the end, sending Lila's brother that e-mail. I practically passed-out at how sweet that was. But pretty much everything else he did was uh-mazing! I looooooove him, and his name is so sexy and of course perfect for him :)
OHHHHHHHHH AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE SONG!
the song he composed for Lila, back in 7th grade, one day she was sick. I actually almost passed-out, I had to stop reading for a bit to happily dance around my room like a moron :D
all Beau's moments were swoon worthy. I WANT HIM IN MY LIFE. T__T
This is one of those books I that puts a smile on your face all while you read it and after you're finished.
