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.

My Review:

Do you make lists? I love a good list. Chloe might be just a tad OCD but she can make a pretty good list. When I originally picked this up I couldn’t figure how an entire book set in a grocery store could be entertaining but I was totally wrong and I might want to work in this grocery story. The story is told in Chloe’s POV but I really feel like all 5 kids were main characters. This has a very strong progressive character build, as the story moves forward you learn a little more about each character and some things are just hilarious, sad, interesting and crazy. I loved each character, It would be like asking me what kid I liked more, I just couldn’t pick.

The story was really cute, someone steals money from the donation box and the 5 kids are accused. They are asked to stay to have a talk with the police to find out what happened to the money. As much as the story isn’t exactly like the Breakfast Club it had the same feel. Each kid with a different personality stuck together, learning about each other but in this book they are also trying to figure out who stole the money.

My only issue with this book, the thing that sort of drove me crazy was the entire time they were at the store, on Christmas Eve, they called their parents once to tell them they would be late but never again? As a mom, I know this is a book, I would be worried if after talking to my kid, 3 hours later they are still not home. Plus the kids should have told their parents what was going on. You get a hint of why some might not but Chloe I would have thought would have totally told her mom but again that might be the mom/worry wort in me.

I really enjoyed this book it was really cute, laugh out loud funny, light fun read, and great for Teens, Young Adults and Adults. I was happy to give this book 4.5 stars. I would highly recommend and looking forward to reading more from Liz Czukas.

  1. I want to read this! I was already interested in it because I’m totally OCD about making lists. I’m with you on the not calling but I can also totally see my son thinking 1 call is enough.

  2. OMG I keep seeing this book everywhere, including the library. Now that I know you liked it, I’ll be sure to pick up a copy 😀 It’s been on my TBR awhile, anyways. 😀 I know my mom would flip, too. My Mom and I are super close – she’s one of my best friends – and she usually knows where I am at all hours of the day. My older brother just doesn’t get that people – especially parents – worry. He’s always annoyed when I have to ask him where he’s at and when he’s going to be home. I guess it helps that I’m a worrier, too. LOL Anyways great review, I’m psyched to read this, myself!
