MEET SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD CANDYCANE CLAUS. She's the most popular girl at North Pole High. Her father is world-famous. And every day is Christmas. What more could any girl want?
BOYS! And the new boy, Rudy Tutti, is hot chocolate. But he hates anything to do with
When Candy and Rudy are forced to work together on a school Christmas-tree project, her world is turned upside down: Her grades start to suffer, she loses her taste for ice cream, and now the two North-Star-cross'd teens must contend with her overprotective father — Santa
Claus — before Christmas is ruined for EVERYONE!
Painfully cold water swallowed me whole. I sloshed and screamed and groped for the edge of the ice. I grabbed hold of a corner and started to pull myself up. It broke off. I started to sink again. The cold pressed on my face like a vice. My hair floated up above my head. Rudy’s fingers clutched at my wrist. He tugged on my arm until my head broke the surface.
“Rudy!” I gasped, spraying him with the cold mouthful of water I had almost
“Hold on, Candy! I got you!”
As he strained to pull me out, the chunk of ice under his feet gave way. He slid into the water, on top of me, my body blocking his from falling all the way in. I hugged his legs, nearly pulling him down with me as I crawled up them like a frozen lobster. His muscles tightened as he helped me scrape my way up his rugged torso until my left ear rested on his chest and I could feel his heartbeat thumping louder and faster than mine.
“Are you all right?” he asked.
For a moment I felt safe. Then his face went ashen. He squeezed me hard,
flipping me off of him, onto my side. He scrambled the rest of the way out of the hole shouting, “Run!”
We were not alone.
