A thoroughly fun read about an awkward, unnoticed girl who has never kissed a boy, but really wants to. A similar concept to the more well-known "Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging." From one embarrassing venture to the next (not on purpose!), Holly tries her hardest to impress the hunky Luke, but is, not-surprisingly, unsuccessful. Her character, in her struggles, is endearing and relatable.

I think this book would be a good read for young girls, around the same age as Holly (fourteen). A

Holly's never kissed a boy before and can't summon the courage to talk to the boy she likes. She has super-strict parents who don't let her do anything. She doesn't fit in with her athletic family, especially since she hates sports. She thinks life couldn't possibly get any worse.

But then it does. Holly loses her best friend to Claudia, who has had tons of boyfriends and has super-cool parents. Now Holly doesn't know what to do. Not only is Claudi

Dit is een van de latere (wellicht de laatste) Tina Toppers. Toen ik een jaar of twaalf was verzamelde ik er ongeveer 70, daarna ben ik nog een hele tijd de nieuwste uitgaven blijven kopen, waaronder deze 'Is verliefd zijn ook een sport?' (die titel; het trekt mij toch een heel stuk minder). Natuurlijk was ik ouder toen ik deze kocht, maar voor mij halen ze helaas het niveau van de eerdere Tina Toppers niet meer. Het kan natuurlijk zijn dat de meisjes van nu deze beter vinden, en da

Hey, it was OK.

No masterpiece, of course. An abundance of exclamation marks, indeed! But whatever, bro; it's one of those books that'd probably be really good for any eleven-to-fourteen year old reader who read all of the Georgia Nicolson saga and is still going through their "I only read domestic drama" phase.
Unless that isn't a universal thing and it was just me who did that.

Plus, in the li'l foreword it says the author's from the same neck of the woods as me, so I guess it gets a tiny bon

so chick flick and yet so good. it follows the story of a girl who had a crush on someone and the story goes on following her journey towards getting that perfect snog. only to find out it wasn't something she dreamt of, not with how it went.. and not with whom she wants it with.

This was one of my first ya books!
Now I don't really remember what happened but I know my 13-year-old self had a blast reading it. It was really funny and my (german) edition was printed in purple! So cool..
