"Get him and his big words," said Cat. "But I agree. Kiss. You must..." "Kiss the next boy who comes onto the beach," Squidge finished for her.
Becca's on a losing streak with boys and she's willing to resort to anything to have a little fun. So on a dare, she kisses the next guy she sees: Lal Lovering, who's on holiday in Cornwall and totally cute.
But when Becca realizes she's interested in more than just a holiday fling, she wonders if Lal can ever see through her rather overwhelming first impression. Between her own changing feelings and her parents' disintegrating marriage, Becca starts to see what sort of support a boyfriend can give...and just how important her friends can be.
