Top Ten Clues You're Clueless by Liz Czukas

Top Ten Clues You're Clueless by Liz Czukas
"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."- summary from Amazon

If you haven't yet read Czukas' extremely awesome debut, now you have two amazing books of hers to read. If you love quick, funny, page-turning reads, these are the books for you. I absolutely loved her sophomore effort and read it very quickly considering how long it takes me to read books lately. I finished it in just a day or so, and may have taken more than my allotted time for breaks at work because of how compelling the story was.

Chloe is a funny, realistic character that I think readers will relate to. I definitely related to her as a retail worker during the holidays and how crazy and stressful that job is. It was interesting to see how very right Czukas got it. And all of Chloe's co-workers were written very well and made for such an engrossing story. And of course the simmering romance between Chloe and Tyson was such fun to read.

Overall, a fantastic follow-up to Czukas' debut Ask Again Later and I am so excited to read whatever she writes next, both as herself and as her NA counterpart, Ellie Cahill.
