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.

Throwing your gorgeous face into the mix would only make it even worse.

So do people judge you by your profile picture because you have a bad personality or because they disregard your great personality and assume you're a bad person because you support Trump? Definitely the second.  Meaning your initial statement isn't entirely correct. There are indeed people who will or will not want to befriend you for your personality instead of for whatever your picture is, yes. But if someone doesn't know much about you as a person or is just too ignorant to care about your personality, then they're gonna judge you solely by that picture. You're genuinely one of the very last people I'd have thought would ever make such a weak point and contradict themselves like that, bud. And you are the last person I'd have thought would come up with such an interesting dilemma. Good work. I wasn't making a serious statement. I was referring to how my boundless charisma is enough for people to want to know me, without having to resort to my dashing good looks.
