Haunted by the memory of the worst of her divorced parents’ public Christmas blowouts, Kerril, will do almost anything to avoid the upcoming tinsel-filled season. Unfortunately, a teacher with a grudge casts Kerril as the lead in the school’s holiday production. To add to the misery, she will star alongside ultra-awkward Adam as her love interest.
Wanting to ditch the play, Adam, her parents, and Christmas altogether, Kerril accepts an invitation to take off to a cabin with her ultimate dream crush, Perry – only Perry may not be the guy she hoped he was, and it’s not until she’s left Adam behind to fend for himself onstage that she realizes he might just be the guy of her dreams.

What I liked: A Christmas Kerril is a cute novel vaguely based on A Christmas Carol. It’s fun to watch Kerril meander through the intricacies of high school and try to understand how her dreams apply to her life.
I’m not sure if most teens will get that Kerril really isn’t any more self-involved than most. While she’s given an understanding of others during the book, it’s hard to say whether this experience will truly alter her perceptions going forward.
What I didn’t like: I wasn’t too keen on the foul language. I felt it was much more than necessary.
