Mistletoe Bell hates Christmas. So would you if you had a name like hers. Her Christmas-mad parents make the festive season last all year, and with another Christmas looming, Mis doesn’t think she can take any more. After her carelessness causes an accident at school, it seems like things can’t get any worse.

Then she wakes up to find The Ghost of Christmases Ruined in her bedroom.

She is taken to the North Pole, to a reform school run by elves determined to make her love Christmas. Stuck in a misfit group of fellow Christmas-haters with a motley crew of the weird and even weirder, watched over by elves day and night, she doesn’t expect to meet cute and funny Luke, who is hiding a vulnerable side beneath his sarcastic exterior. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with him.

But all is not as it should be at the North Pole. A certain Mr Claus is making the elves’ lives a misery, and pretty soon Mistletoe and Luke are doing more than just learning to like Christmas.

A YA romantic comedy in which Santa is the bad guy, teaching reindeer to fly is on the curriculum, and zombies have a fondness for Christmas music.
Suitable for older teens and upwards due to bad language.


I well and truly LOVED this story and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to read this book!

Mistletoe Bell is accused of ruining Christmas after an accident at her school, her punishment is that she now has to go to the North Pole Reform School. Waking up in the North Pole is unbelievable enough, but now she's stuck with four others who also hate Christmas and has to do chores as a means of learning to appreciate Christmas.

One of the other reform students is Luke, a cute guy with a shield of sarcasm and an unusual family and Mistletoe soon finds herself falling for him. However, all is not as you'd expect, Santa is is far from jolly and loving, and doesn't seem to care too much for the elves, and this kind of attitude causes all kinds of difficulties...

Mistletoe is a very likable character, she may hate Christmas but she learns quickly and genuinely cares about other people. She's quietly sarcastic, but isn't afraid to speak her mind.
Luke is gorgeous, and not just in the looks department. He cares a lot more than he tries to let on and definitely uses sarcasm as a shield, but the more you get to know his character, the more he melts your heart.

Jingle, Garland and Winter are totally my favourite elves, while Tinsel and Navi are kind of parental in their behaviour.

North Pole Reform School is absolutely brilliant, the concept is completely unique and so well-written. There is wit and sarcasm, along with an important message delivered to readers. 

Jaimie takes Christmas and spins a whole new story unlike anything you've seen before - a not-so-nice Santa, hilarious elves, grudging reindeers and zombie - an amazing combination that definitely works.

Definitely a new Christmas favourite, North Pole Reform School will have you laughing, have your heart breaking, and will most definitely leave a gigantic grin on your faces.

I rate North Pole Reform School Five out of Five!!!
