Acclaimed writer Margo Rabb’s Kissing in America is “a wonderful novel about friendship,
love, travel, life, hope, poetry, intelligence, and the inner lives of
girls,” raves internationally bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert.
In the two years since her father died,
sixteen-year-old Eva has found comfort in reading romance novels—118 of them,
to be exact—to dull the pain of her loss that’s still so present. Her romantic
fantasies become a reality when she meets Will, who understands Eva’s grief.
Unfortunately, after Eva falls head over heels for him, he picks up and moves
to California without any warning. Not wanting to lose the only person who has
been able to pull her out of sadness—and, perhaps, her shot at real love—Eva
and her best friend, Annie, concoct a plan to travel to the West Coast to see
Will again. As they road trip across America, Eva and Annie confront the
complex truth about love.
In this honest and emotional journey that National
Book Award finalist Sara Zarr calls “gorgeous, funny, and joyous,”
readers will experience the highs of infatuation and the lows of heartache as
Eva contends with love in all its forms. Download and start listening now!
