Confessions of A Serial KisserBook - 2008
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 . . .

(Feb 23, 2010) From the back cover of the Alfred A. Knopf printing of the book:
[red]THREE STEPS TO LIVING YOUR FANTASY![/red]
[I][red]1. Speak your fantasy.[i][/red]
I, Evageline Bianca Logan, want a kiss. One spectacular, heart-stopping, life-alterring crimson kiss.
Okay, so I've had very little lip-locking experience up till now, but I've got assets....
[i][red]2. See your fantasy.[/i][/red]
He sweeps me into his arms, looks lovingly into my eyes; his lips brush against mine, warm, tender, full of smoldering passion, and then...
Oh, yeah. I can definitely see it.
[i][red]3. Live your fantasy.[/i][/red]
That's it?! How????
The self help book made it sound easy, but finding a crimson kisser in the halls of Larkmont High is proving even more difficult than Evangeline imagined.
What seem like good kissing prospects turn out to be fish-lipped kissers, or misser kissers, or worse--ear-lickers. Disgusting!
But Evangeline is not ready to give up. She really needs to believe in love right now. Or at least inthe possibility for love. Or--oh, one good kiss isn't too much to ask for, is it?
In this laugh-out-loud-funny and persistently wise book, Wendelin Van Draanen gives us the story of a girl on a quest for the perfect kiss who, in the process, finds herself.
