Waiting on Wednesday #37

17 First Kisses17 First Kisses by Rachael Allen
Series: N/A
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: June 17, 2014
No matter how many boys Claire kisses, she can’t seem to find a decent boyfriend. Someone who wouldn’t rather date her gorgeous best friend, Megan. Someone who won’t freak out when he learns about the tragedy her family still hasn’t recovered from. Someone whose kisses can carry her away from her backwoods town for one fleeting moment.

Until Claire meets Luke.

But Megan is falling for Luke, too, and if there’s one thing Claire knows for sure, it’s that Megan’s pretty much irresistible.

With true love and best friendship on the line, Claire suddenly has everything to lose. And what she learns—about her crush, her friends, and most of all herself—makes the choices even harder.

In her moving debut, Rachael Allen brilliantly captures the complexities of friendship, the struggles of self-discovery, and the difficulties of trying to find love in high school. Fans of Sarah Ockler, Susane Colasanti, and Stephanie Perkins will fall head over heels for this addictive, heartfelt, and often hilarious modern love story.
There's something about this storyline that just appeals to me. I WANT TO KNOW OF THIS TRAGEDY. AND TO SEE THIS ROMANCE. Oh, it 'twould be an honor to witness it all! And not to mention the fact that they said it was for fans of several AWESOME contemporary authors! I might die and go to Bluegrass heaven, y'all!

    I just got a copy in the mail, but I read it awhile ago because I needed some summer during this year's snowmadness. I like it.
