Book Review: First Kiss by Cindy M. Hogan

Book Description
VL. Virgin Lips. You may not have heard of it, but where I live, it’s a thing with a card, even if it is a figurative card. I was Brooklyn Hill, certified virgin lips, and I planned on clinging to that figurative card with all I had—while dating as many of the hottest guys at school as I could.
Maybe that’s a bit strange. I mean, what teenage girl isn’t interested in kissing? Locking lips definitely interested me, but the drama that came with it didn’t. No kissing, no drama. Simple.
But on my sixteenth birthday, on my first real date even, the drama found me. His name was Luke Graham—cute, funny, and bad news for the whole female race.

My Review
4.5 out of 5 stars
First Kiss is episode one in the Confessions of a Sixteen-Year-Old Virgin Lips series. I loved it! This short story was a breath of fresh air. The voice of the main character was full of personality. With her strict adherence to rules but ability to still have a fun and playful side, she broke the mold of typical teenage heroines which I really appreciated. Brooklyn also reminded me a lot of myself in high school, which made the story fun and relatable.  

I really love that this story is about the mistakes and mishaps teenagers experience in the world of high school romance, and not about how teenage love is wonderful. The warm narrative voice made reading this a delight. I cannot wait to find out what Brooklyn learns next in episode two.
