High school junior Parker Stanhope has played soccer all her life. She's always there for her team and she expects to be moved up to the varsity team as an upperclassman. Unfortunately, this year the coach decides not to move everyone up. Parker and one other player are left in junior varsity.

Her soccer horror keeps getting worse, because her friends now on the varsity team don't want to hang out with her any more. If she doesn't do something decisive soon, the entire soccer season will be over. Parker comes up with the perfect plan to win her place on the varsity team, leaving junior varsity far behind.

Her plan includes a kissing booth at the school's annual sports fair, her brother's college roommate and a perfect kiss. For a price, her brother's friend will play along, but he suggests Parker practice kissing since her experience is limited. Now she has to find someone to practice with. When she really gets into it, she realizes there is a lot to learn. Who knew so many different kinds of kisses exist?

This hilarious novel makes a great beach book and you're sure to learn a lot about kissing, too.
