"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." - Oscar Wilde
So freakin' ADORABLE!
Maaaaan, I loved this! Ryan had to figure out three personal presents as secret santa for non other than Jamie Peterson. The same Jamie he secretly watched, but openly didn't stand up for when fellow students or his own best friend make fun of him. Quite the opposite, since they usually pick on him because Jamie's gay and out, while Ryan is... not.
This was unbelievably sweet, darned cute and sooo adorable. I loved Ryan. He was the epitome of a young guy, not yet a man, but not a boy anymore - who was trying so very hard to find himself, deal with his hormones and not hurt anyone in the process. He wasn't perfect. He made mistakes and had regrets. But deep down he's such a good guy and it showed again and again. Plus, I freakin' loved his sparkly rainbow spider! Dang, the cuteness was killing me.
This book is only a short read, but it's full of promise, feelings and tenderness. I absolutely loved it, and that's saying something since I'm not the biggest fan of CoA & YA stories. Seriously, if you're in the mood for a little holiday spirit, but mostly sweetness and great MCs, pick this one up!
