Publication date: 6/17/2014 ISBN-13: 9780062281340 Overview In this incandescent page-turner, sixteen-year-old Claire learns the unfortunate truth that sometimes a girl has to kiss a lot of frogs. . . . Brilliantly capturing the complexities of friendship, the struggles of self-discovery, and the difficulties of trying to find love in high school, Rachael Allen has crafted a rich debut that's impossible to put down. No matter how many boys Claire kisses, she can't seem to find a decent boyfriend—someone who isn't afraid of her family's tragic past or her own aspirations for the future . . . until she meets Luke. But Megan, Claire's closest friend, is falling for Luke, too, and if there's one thing Claire knows for sure, it's that Megan is 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. About the author Debut author Rachael Allen lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where she's working furiously on her PhD in neuroscience. When she's not doing science or writing YA, you can find her chasing after a toddler, a baby, and two sled dogs. Rachael may or may not have had 17 first kisses. . . . Luckily she doesn't kiss and tell.
