Title: Kissing in Cars Author: Sara Hassinger Ney Rating: Studious and (mostly) sensible, the only thing Molly Wakefield wants to do is get through Senior Year and graduate. Well, that and hit the beach in her spare time. Okay, fine - and go shopping every once in a while for a new dress..
And things are going according to plan - until the day she spies Weston McGrath, handsome start athlete and scholar, spying on her in study hall.
A tad creepy? Maybe.
You see, Weston McGrath happens to be one guy no one can get close to.
Despite her best efforts to avoid it (because let's face it - the guy isn't exactly "boyfriend material") Mollly and Weston form a friendship.
But it's a friendship that comes with a price - because Weston just cannot seem to stop screwing things up. Or saying all the wrong things. Possibly in that order...
And who has time for an 18 year old "fixer-upper" that should know better?
Or does she?
Kissing In Cars begins with Molly sitting in class waiting for the day to end. She's just ready to go home until she feels someone staring at her. When she looks up she catches Weston staring at her. The local hockey star who doesn't "date" or have "girlfriends." So Molly isn't sure what to think, but she knows she doesn't want to deal with any of that. And Weston who is just now noticing how beautiful Molly is doesn't know how to react to her either, but he knows he wants to ask her out. And this may pretty much be only the second date he's ever been on, but he knows Molly is different from all the other girls. And Molly doesn't understand Weston he acts one way, then another in front of others so she's just not sure what he wants. These two take journey through friendship and more that has parents, and friends butting into their relationship, and Weston doesn't handle that so well.
This book was really good. I loved the plot line, and I also loved the characters. Weston isn't exactly your typical "bad boy." Mainly because almost all the stuff that has been said about him isn't true, and if it is true it's not for the reasons people think. He's completely focused on hockey, and while he's not been a monk he hasn't really dated anyone before, and he doesn't know how to deal with that. Then there is Molly who is seriously awesome. I felt like she was actually "real" though out the book. Because she wasn't some super sweet nice girl who only gave it up to the guy she loved. She actually did things before Weston, and to me it just made her more likable. I also felt like she was really mature for her age, and I loved her and Weston together. Now I wish I could read more about them. Oh well, I highly recommend this book if your into young adult romance!
