Top Ten Clues You're Clueless
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

Chloe is late to the store where she works on Christmas Eve, but she doesn’t expect to be detained after work as a suspect when someone steals some charity money from the store.
Who really stole the money? And will Chloe ever make it home?

This book started out okay, but I got bored.

Chloe was an okay character, but I hated how she let her diabetes get so out of control! Fair enough she had an insulin pump, but the way she skipped meals, and threw away the breakfast her mother gave her, not to mention not telling anyone at work that she had diabetes was downright irresponsible.

The storyline in this started out okay, but I just got bored. I liked the mystery around who had stolen the money, and that was basically what kept me reading, but the rest of the book was just dull. A handful of teens forced to stay at the supermarket where they work after hours on Christmas eve – not all that exciting unfortunately. I also wasn’t very impressed that the teens were kept behind whilst other employees were allowed to go home, when there was no proof that it was one of the teens who had stolen anything!
There was some romance, but it wasn’t really developed enough for me, and it felt like a side story rather than being part of the main story.
The ending was okay, but to be honest I was just glad that the mystery was solved and the book was finished.
Overall; dull,
6 out of 10.
