Review: The Serious Kiss by Mary Hogan

Any Meg Cabot fans this book has made your must read list! For any teen girl going through a move knows first hand it is tough, leaving friends, your child hood bedroom and your secret crush! Reading it through the eyes of Libby you realise that being uprooted from your home isn't everyones dream but you can't help but hope for the best for Libby because although she can be rude at times she really just needs a little comfort, you can't help but love and despise the characters in this novel!

Although the cover and title of this book can be misleading to make it seem fluffy and girly, through the book you realise that Libby has to deal with some tough things such as her dad is an alcholic, a cruel one also and her family is torn apart by issues and the fact that the family is in a pile of debt.

One summer day, Libby and her best friend hatch a plan: Before their freshman year is over, they will each have a serious kiss. Libby even has the boy picked out. But Libby's too-crazy-to-believe parents have another plan: They're moving. To the middle of nowhere. Far from Libby's friends, all hope of a normal life, and kissing, serious or otherwise.
Just when things are completely falling apart, Libby starts to wonder, Is being happy really about a perfect plan? And if she stops planning, could that be the key to happiness -- and to a perfect, incredible, wonderful, serious kiss?
Being a girl is not simple but if you want to have a few laughs and tears I would recommend this book, for any girl aged 12+!
