Overview

Kasie West meets Morgan Matson in this hilarious and heartwarming debut about a girl’s summer mission to get over her ex-boyfriend by kissing her way through the alphabet.

Getting dumped by her boyfriend is not how Veda planned on starting her summer. When Mark makes it clear that it’s over between them, Veda is heartbroken and humiliated—but, more importantly, she’s inspired. So she sets out on the love quest of a lifetime: use the summer to forget about Mark, to move on, and move up. All she has to do is kiss twenty-six boys with twenty-six different names—one for each letter of the alphabet.

From the top of the Ferris wheel at her hometown carnival to the sandy dunes of Lake Michigan, Veda takes every opportunity she can to add kisses (and boys) to her list, and soon the break-up doesn’t sting quite as much. But just when Veda thinks she has the whole kissing thing figured out, she meets someone who turns her world upside down.

Setting
The setting takes place in Michigan near lake Michigan many if not all of the events that take place in the book take place near the lake and that's also where Veda and her friends all work at a boating shack by the lake which Mels dad owns.
Characters
One of the main character's name is Veda she starts her summer off with getting dumped by her boyfriend, which is Mark they were together for three years. She has a best friend named Mel, Mel tries and talks Veda into doing a kiss list to help take her mind off of Mark. The two girls have another best friend named Seth, who sorta has a thing with Mel but they both won't admit it the last main character is Killian who starts off as a coworker that works at the boat shack but soon turns into something much more.
Good Points
I really liked how the author wrote the book to relate to teenagers and how well she wrote the characters i think that she did a good job with how she put the whole story together.
Bad Points
I didn't like how some of the points in the book were really predictable and "cheesy". I also didn't really like how the author portrayed some of the characters with how they acted.
Plot Summary
Veda is a teenager who started off her summer by getting dumped from her boyfriend of three years. Mark, her ex now, is all she thinks about and cannot help but mope around. Her best friend, Mel, doesn't want Veda to spend her summer being Depressed. She encourages Veda to get out and meet new people. She comes up with an idea of Having Veda kiss 26 guys with names that start with different letters of the alphabet. At first Veda thinks this is a crazy idea but then goes along with it. Many of those kisses don't mean anything to Veda except for one guy she meets.
Ending
For me I wish there was a little more to the ending I didn't really fill satisfying to me on how the book ended but I thought it was a cute ending as well.

Setting
The setting in this book takes place in a town called Butterfield in Michigan. Veda and her friends all grew up in this same town. The live near a lake. Much of the events take place near the lake because Veda and her friends all work at a boating/ tubing center by the lake.
Characters
The main character's name is Veda. Veda starts her summer off with getting dumped by her boyfriend, Mark, of 3 years. Her best friend, Mel, bugs Veda into doing anything to take her mind off of Mark. The two girls have a 3rd bestfriend, Seth, who lowkey has a thing with Mel but doesn't. Killian starts off as a coworker of Veda but soon turns into something much more.
Good Points
Something I believe the author did well was relate how teenagers really do feel now-a-days. I think that most of the reason why I liked this book is because I could relate to how the main character felt in most of the situations. Another thing she did well was creating the characters in the story. All of them were very different and they were the type of people you would definitely find in any high school currently. The ending taught a great lesson for others.
Bad Points
I really wish that this book wasn't so predictable. Through reading this book I already kind of knew what was gonna happen in the end. I wish there would've been some sort of plot twist or turn in the story. Other than that I thought the book was great.
Plot Summary

She comes up with an idea of Having Veda kiss 26 guys with names that start with different letters of the alphabet. At first Veda thinks this is a crazy idea but then goes along with it. Many of those kisses don't mean anything to Veda but a game, except one of them....
Ending
The ending was not satisfying to me because I had already predicted it would happen when reading the book earlier on.
