  Publishers Weekly Review

In a sweet and satisfying Christmas Eve romance told from alternating perspectives, two strangers embark on an epic night of soul-searching and adventure. Charlotte, having completed a semester of high school in New York City, is at the airport on her way home to England. She was in love with the city and a boy named Colin, until he dropped her. Meanwhile, Columbia student Anthony just got dumped by his long-distance girlfriend after waiting to greet her at J.F.K. When Charlotte's flight is canceled, she and Anthony commiserate over an airport bookstore copy of Get Over Your Ex in Ten Easy Steps!, then decide to follow its instructions together, crisscrossing the city with comically disastrous and poignant results. Rider (a pen name for Stephanie Elliott and James Noble) creates enticing chemistry between Charlotte and Anthony in this giddy ode to the Big Apple. Ages 14-up. Agent: Alexandra Devlin, Working Partners. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Summary
It's Christmas Eve at JFK in NYC. Charlotte's flight is cancelled when a blizzard blows in, and Anthony can't bear to go home and face his break-up. So, they set out into the city together, focused on fixing their broken hearts. They start to fall for each other, but are split up by a subway ride mistake! Part Before Sunrise, part Sleepless in Seattle, this delightful story will appeal to anyone who sees the romance in a swirl of snowflakes at the top of the Empire State Building, or anyone who's wondered if true love was waiting at the other end of the airport ticket counter.
