Does the perfect kiss exist?
This smart and funny modern romance explores the pleasures and perils of love. A great book for fans of romantic reads like "To All the Boys I ve Loved Before" by Jenny Han.
Evangeline Logan wants a kiss. Not just any kiss a crimson kiss, like the one in a romance novel she's become obsessed with. But the path to perfection is paved with many bad kisses the smash mouth, the ear licker, the misser, the tentative tight lipper.
The phrase 'I don't kiss and tell' means nothing to the boys in her school. And worse: someone starts writing her name and number on bathroom walls. And worst of all: the boy she's just kissed turns out to be her best friend's new crush.
Kissing turns out to be way more complicated than the romance novels would have you believe . . .
