Book Review: Confessions of a Serial Kisser

Confessions of a Serial Kisser by Wendelin Van Draanen

This sounded like a cute YA novel, and I remembered it being heavily promoted at ALA this summer, so I thought I'd give it a read.

Evangeline is looking for that perfect "crimson kiss" - the kind you read about in trashy romance novels. So, she goes on a quest to find that kiss, and ends up turning things upside down with the boys she kisses, her best friend, and her reluctance to forgive her father for some unauthorized kissing of his own...

This was a cute enough novel - the quest for the kiss was cute, but the rest of the tone was at times quite serious, as Evangeline struggles with her parent's impending divorce, her struggle to find herself, and risking the loss of her best friend.

It wasn't my favorite YA novel, but it was a satisfying read nonetheless...
