The ABC's of Kissing Boys by Tina Ferraro

The ABC's of Kissing Boys by Tina Ferraro
Publication Date: January 13, 2009
Versions: paperback, kindle

Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
Parker Stanhope has played soccer practically since she could walk. And now that she’s a high school junior, everything she’s worked for is finally coming together. She’s paid her dues on the field, and as an upperclassman, she’s a shoo-in for the varsity team. But that’s not what happens.



This year, Coach Hartley moved up every JV player but two—and one of those two was Parker. Now, she’s stuck with the freshmen, her friends are cutting her loose, and her love of the game is seriously beginning to fail. But Parker is determined to get her life back. She has to get on the varsity team, and she has the perfect plan. All she needs now is the right kind of coach.

The ABC's of Kissing Boys by Tina Ferraro starts out with Parker learning she didn't make the varsity team and is very upset about it and the fact that her friends are now leaving her out. So in order to get back into her friend group and on the Varsity team, she has to do something about it-and that something involves her neighbor. This is a really cute book, and it's about kissing-and who doesn't like a book about kissing?

Each chapter starts out with the name of a kiss (starting with A and ending with Z) and then it states the definition of that kiss. And within that chapter, that kiss happens-which is super cute and I loved how she followed the alphabet.

Will I reread it?
Most defiantly.

This book was just a really light, fun read that I suggest it to every age group including those younger teens and older teens. It was just very enjoyable.

Great review! You should read "top ten uses for an unworn prom dress" if you haven't already - that's my favorite Ferraro book! :) It's awesome!
