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.


Advanced praise for Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless

The real charm of the book is its character study of Chloe and her hesitant outreach to the other characters; although billed as a romance, this is a book about forming friendships. Charming, fun and insightful.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Chloe’s narration is upbeat and entertaining, Czukas’s characters are memorably eccentric, and the mystery about who stole the money pushes readers along in this sweet comedy.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“Witty, detailed, unusual and full of spunk, Czukas has delivered a winner. The characters are vivacious and interesting, the plot definitely stands out from the current YA trends and the down-to-earth humor will have readers rolling. So grab your shopping cart–Czukas will provide the lists!” – RT Book Reviews

Fans of self-depreciating, funny narrators like those found in David Lubar’s Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie  or Randa Abdel-Fattah’s Does My Head Look Big in This will enjoy this light, holiday read.” – VOYA
