Review by Lauren - The ABC's of Kissing Boys

pThe ABC's of Kissing Boys by Tina Ferraro

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.

Haha well the premise of this story seemed really similar to that of The Comeback (review); popular girl loses everything and tries to get it back. Truthfully, her plan seemed really weird to me - ok let me try to make it not sound super complicated... Her brother's hot friend, who is 4 years older than her is coming to like a carnival and demanding that he kiss her... Umm but he can't because the kissing booth isn't for the JV team so he's supposed to offer 300 $ so that she gets put back on varsity and he can kiss her.


Makes sense? :/

Yeaaahhh I think this entire review is going to be confusing... Sorry guys :(

So I thought that could have been a little better thought out lol. So poor Parker is going to have to make out with this guy but she's never been kissed. So her freshman neighbour decides to give her kissing lessons, which just makes the plot even weirder. ALTHOUGH: He is a freshman but he's only a year younger than her because he got held back or something... a little less of the whole cradle robbing thing...

Even with all this wonky plot, I really enjoyed The ABC's of Kissing Boys. It was so cute :) :) I loved Tristan and the whole "I have to become popular again" wasn't quite there as much as in The Comeback. A little less desperation lol and a little less... uh... evilness? Ha. Quick, light, happy, cute read. I really enjoyed it.


Yay for half shelves!!
