Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys)

Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys)

Sneak out. Make out. Rock out.

Riley and her best guy friend, Reid, have made a pact: they’ll help each other pursue their respective crushes, make something happen, and document the details in a shared notebook.

While Reid struggles with the moral dilemma of adopting a dog to win over a girl’s heart, Riley tries to make progress with Ted Callahan, the guy she’s been obsessed with forever. His floppy hair! His undeniable intelligence! But between a chance meeting with a fellow musician in a record store and a brief tryst with a science-geek-turned-stud-not to mention Ted’s own tentative attentions-cute guys are suddenly popping up everywhere. How did she never notice them before?! As their love lives go from zero to sixty in the blink of an eye, Riley and Reid’s pact may prove to be more than they bargained for.

Filled with cute dogs, cute boys, and a few awkward hookups, this hilarious tale from Amy Spalding chronicles the soaring highs and embarrassing lows of dating in high school.

Praise

Praise for Kissing Ted Callahan:
A 2016 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults Selection
"A not-so-fluffy chick-lit offering rife with angst, rock 'n' roll and lots of kissing."
Kirkus Reviews
"It's refreshing to see a boy-girl friendship built on mutual support that doesn't drift into romance...Riley's voice is irreverent and funny."—Publishers Weekly
"Character driven... this book will appeal most to teenagers questioning and exploring romantic relationships....Most readers will find the notebook entries (done in a handwriting-like font) humorous and relate to the confusing feelings that come from acting on a crush or trying to date in high school. Recommended for teens looking for realistic stories without a hefty amount of drama."—SLJ
"I laughed so hard I cried. Twice. I have a major crush on Ted Callahan."—Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door
"Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) is hugely fun and full of our favorite things: secrets, shenanigans, and SO many cute boys."—Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, authors of Spoiled and Messy
"Riley and I became besties immediately...I cackled (and maybe even snorted) my way through this novel in one afternoon, but don't let that fool you. There's plenty of substance in Riley's story, and her trials and tribulations strike an authentic chord that can still be heard over the din of laughter."—Sarah Pitre, Forever Young Adult
