Two Exes. One holiday adventure.
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?
When 17-year-old Lila's plans to throw the party of the year are derailed by her third-grader brother, Cooper, her revenge involves a news article about melting polar ice caps, which strikes terror into his Christmas-loving heart. So when Cooper and a friend head for the North Pole to save Santa, Lila must chase the kids up the Pacific coast with her indie rocker ex-boyfriend. Readers will easily predict the story's trajectory this is the stuff of romantic, made-for-TV holiday specials which is as conventional and crowd-pleasing as the candy canes on the cover. Ages 14 up.
