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.

My Thoughts:

This is a very cute book about a high school girl who works at a grocery store as a cashier. She is very isolated from others because of her overprotective mother and her type 1 diabetes. She doesn’t discuss her diabetes with people and few know she has it.
The story at first is a little slow, she seems a little anal with all her lists and the way she is. But she’s sweet and cute, and a lot self conscience. Her job is one that she likes and she has a MAJOR crush on one of the bag boys. The story really picks up when the store manager accuses ‘the younglings’ of stealing almost $10,000 dollars from a donation box for a Christmas drive they are holding. Because they are held for about 3 hours after closing, they really start to get to know each other. Plus, they figure out who actually stole the money! Helping the police catch him too.

The one ‘problem’ I had is after accusing them of stealing the money, holding them against their will for hours and hours, and being a complete douchenozzle, the manager offers them a free bakery item as an apology. Umm, excuse me…how about a raise? or a day off?

4 out of 5 stars. Very cute read and quick.
