EVANGELINE LOGAN WANTS a kiss. A spectacular, heart-stopping, life changing kiss. Somehow The Crimson Kiss (a romance novel she’s become obsessed with) and Four Steps to Living Your Fantasy (a self-help book she’s reading) have fused in Evangeline’s mind and sent her on a quest for a kiss. But the path to perfection is paved with many bad kisses—the smash mouth, the ear licker, the “misser.” 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 . . .
Beth says 4 Stars...
I was very skeptical of this book when I started it. From the pink cover to the title it appeared like another terribly shallow chick-lit book. I'm willing to admit that I was wrong. This book was so much better and deeper than the title implied. The main character, Evangeline, had to confront her own demons and issues raised by her parents' divorce. The plot moved along fairly well, and the commentary on romance was biting and spot on. It served as a reminder that quite often we end up looking for the wrong thing , or that we look for the right thing in the all of the wrong places. I enjoyed the book and found it to be a fun and insightful read.
