Teenage age angst is at its high when Kathleen is torn between two boys: Atticus, the unassuming boy who is different in more ways than one and couldn't care less about popularity, and Bobby O’Hara, the “it boy”… athletic, popular and all around dreamboat. Kathleen and Atticus’ connection formed well before the teenage years and Bobby’s after elementary school. As a matter of fact, Bobby doesn’t even acknowledge Kathleen until a fateful boy/girl party. The decision roller coaster ride overwhelms Kathleen as to who is the best fit for her, Atticus or Bobby. Will she go with what her friends feel is best or does she go with her heart?

Stephanie Hoina’s debut young adult novel will have the reader cheering Kathleen on as she makes milestone decisions that any teenager can relate to and will bring back memories for adults too. Superb fast paced storytelling expertise. I adored Kissing Atticus Primble and look forward to more fine works from Ms. Hoina! Well done!
