Elena Chestnut has been chatting with an anonymous boy late into the night. It’s a very You’ve Got Mail situation, and she has no idea who he is. He can’t be Oliver Prince, hot-and-bashful son of the family running the rival sporting goods store. Their fancy sales strategies are driving Elena’s family out of business. Elena’s mystery boy has teamed up with her in their latest sales strategy, an augmented reality game, to help her win the grand-prize plane tickets. Money’s so tight Elena’s going to miss senior year spring break with her friends if she can’t win this game.
The girl Oliver's fallen head-over-heels for online had better not be Elena Chestnut. She's his angry, vindictive Latin tutor, the daughter of his dad’s business rival, and the one girl he’d never even think of kissing. She’s definitely not his online crush, because that girl is funny, sweet, and perfect.
When Oliver asks to reveal their names at the Valentine’s Day dance, their IRL relationship will either ruin what they have online, or they’ll discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.

Any Boy but You
Great Start to the Series
When I read the blurb and the comparison to You've Got Mail, I was hooked. Throw in a Romeo and Juliet aspect and you have the awesome first book in the North Pole series.
This was a really cute book about two teens who have no idea why they are supposed to hate each, only that that is what is expected of their families. Even the people in the town have taken sides between these two families and it has always been that way.
For the most part, this was a fun, lighthearted story but it did touch on some issues that can be especially difficult to navigate during the teen years. I absolutely loved Elena. She's feisty and an amazing friend. Oliver was hilarious once he started to come out of his shell. I can't wait to see what's in store of the rest of these characters as the series continues.
