Jingle Boy Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

If youre lookin for a festive read this Christmas season, grab hold of the teen novel Jingle Boy for some real Christmas joy!

Author: Kieran Scott

"Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus lane..." By the time you've gotten through Jingle Boy, your head will be buzzin' with Christmas tunes and lots of cheery vibes. Find out why you should pick up a copy of this festive book during the holiday season!


Christmas Blueprints

If you're lookin' to get into the holiday spirit, Jingle Boy will definitely get you there. It starts off with Paul Nicholas spreading all his Christmas joy, eager to start his Christmas shopping the week after Thanksgiving. Paul is a certified Christmas nut but when he loses his favorite Santa hat, things start to go wrong. His GF dumps him for a lame mall Santa, his dad gets electrocuted and his house almost burns to the ground. Suddenly Paul's not so jolly anymore.


Jingle Boy Rocks!

Not only does Jingle Boy deliver a warm and fuzzy holiday message, there are a ton of really great characters in Jingle Boy - especially Paul's best bud, Holly. When Paul loses his Christmas spirit, Holly recruits him to join the Anti-Christmas Underground - a group of delinquents bent on ridding the town of Christmas joy. Their actions are pretty grinchy but they're the exact reason you keep flipping the pages - so you can see what evil plot they have planned next. There's also a good love story intertwined, but it's cool that author Kieran Scott doesn't make it all mushy-gushy.


The Spirit of Scrooge

Jingle Boy does have its fair share of cheese when it comes to telling Paul's story - but isn't that kind of what Christmas is about? There are some lame cliches and a few predictable turns in the plot, but overall Jingle Boy's storyline is pretty solid and original.


The Christmastime Bottom line

Cozy up to the fire with a cup of hot chocolate, have some Christmas carols playing in the background and crack open a copy of Jingle Boy. Christmas just wouldn't be the same without a tale of misfortune and crazy shenanigans - think It's a Wonderful Life, just a lot hipper, and in book form!


Jingle Boy Rating: 5
