Listen to Is Kissing a Girl Who Smokes Like Licking an Ashtray? on your phone!
Meet Biff, a weird, wild-haired high school senior with a couple of problems. He’s 18 but looks more like 14, which makes it hard for people—especially girls—to take him seriously. He’s too shy to say anything more than “Hi’ to Tommie, the girl he’s had a crush on for two years. The way things are going, it doesn’t look like Biff will ever find a girlfriend or get the chance to kiss a girl. That is, until he meets Heidi. A beautiful, brash cigarette smoker, she’s the kind of dangerous girl Biff usually tries to avoid. But the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes Heidi may be the best friend he’s ever had. If he trusts her, she might even teach him how to talk to Tommie. Randy Powell delivers an authentic and poignant look at the real-life anxieties of today’s teenagers. Smart dialogue, sassy characters, and swiftly-paced prose make this ALA Best Book for Young Adults an exciting choice.
