Kissing in America; Margo Rabb

Kissing in AmericaKissing in America by Margo Rabb
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A lot of promise here that ultimately got wasted. A girl obsessed with romance novels decides to travel across country (as part of a reality tv team) to find The Guy. But somehow the middle part, where Eva and Annie go from NYC to LA, fails. It felt like padding, as though there were supposed to be lessons learned or something that the author had to include and this was the only way to do it. Plus, combining all this with the mystery of what happened to the plan Eva's father was on (mechanical failure? something else?) was just too much. One or the other would have been stronger.
