The ABC's of Kissing Boys review

Parker loves and lives for soccer. She and her best friends have always played together, kicking butt on the field and off. When Parker gets word that she will be starting off her junior year of high school on the JV team, rather than being moved up to Varsity like anyone else, she's devastated and knows not only will her soccer dreams be crushed, but her social life as she knows it is over.

Determined to find a way onto the Varsity team, Parker concocts a plan to virtually trick her coach into letting her on the team...and all it will take is a cute college boy, a kissing booth, and lots of practice sessions with the boy next door.

Tina Ferraro has created a character and a novel that will definitely cater to those fans of the Clique series and the Gossip Girl thing, but I'm not quite sure it caters to me as the reader. Which is fine....a lot of teen girls will get a kick out of this story, the romancy, make-out filled pages, and the somewhat self-obsessed Parker. The story is cute, the neighbor boy is super-cute, and Parker is often cutesy (meaning a bit ditzy).

The ABC's of Kissing Boys was definitely not the best thing I've read, but it wasn't terrible. Again, great for fans of the Gossip Girl/Clique series.

I love this authors other two books, and even though I like those covers better, I am really looking forward to this one!
