Kissing Snowflakes

Before I say anything about Kissing Snowflakes you should know that a) I am not in the target demographic for this book, being neither a teenager nor a girl and b) I'm friends with the author, Abby Sher (improvista, essayist, and now novelist). Having gotten those caveats out of the way: it's wonderful. Sam(antha) Levy is headed to a Vermont ski resort with her brother, father, and brand-new step-mom, and without her best friend. Can anything good come out of the trip? Maybe Drew, the handsome, blond ski instructor? You'll find, in alphabetical order, art, betrayal, caddish behavior, a dog, drinking, friendship, kissing, literature, mom-issues, (talk of) sex, and some skiing.
