Review of Kissing Vanessa, a book by Simon Cheshire about an average guy who falls for the beautiful girl in school.

Author: Simon Cheshire

You've probably read a million romance novels, but Kissing Vanessa stands out from the typical teen romance because it comes from a guy's perspective. It'll give you a first-hand look at the comical situations that clueless guys find themselves in when they're crushing on girls and falling in love.

The Road to Love

Fifteen year-old Kevin Watts falls in love at first sight with Vanessa Wishart, the new girl in school. She's pretty, friendly, smart and even loves photography - just like Kevin! He thinks they're absolutely perfect for each other, but he soon realizes it's hard to win over the girl of your dreams when you're an average guy who fades into the background.

What Boys Will Do For Love

Enter Kevin's best friend, Jack, a cool and confident guy who seems to get any girl he wants. Thankfully, he's writing a dating manual to help the less fortunate studs in the school land babes. He dishes out advice like, "Look cool to be cool" and "Never spend much time together - keep her guessing." At first, Kevin doesn't want to follow in Jack's dating footsteps, but his clueless desperation forces him to do so! Will Jack's love tips help Kevin become a babe magnet, or will it just make Vanessa think that he's a big dork?


The Bottom Line

Kissing Vanessa is an entertaining read for both girls and boys. The best thing about this book is that girls will get a better understanding of why guys do the things they do for love.

    All hallows eve, Do not look, For I am the Night, the Night I am, The earth, I am, The air, I am, The fire, I am, The water, I am, Look me in my eye, And see the color of rainbows. I have seen both worlds, Of happiness and darkness, Neither is wrong,  On the Night when its thin, When the spirits can roam, I will be there for you, Through my Darkness.
