Have you ever been reading a book on your ereader and looked at the notification that tells you how far you’ve progressed and it says 53% and you think, “What? How is that possible?” You’ve been so swept up in the novel that you’ve read more than half of it. And then the same thing happens at 90%. But this time, it’s kind of “awe, it’s been a great ride.”
That’s what happened last night while I was reading Kisses on a Paper Airplane. Time flew (haha, pun!) by.
Hannah is studying drama in London when her mother, a single parent after the death of Hannah’s father, asks her to come home at Thanksgiving to attend her wedding. Hannah’s mother is getting married to a man she met in the few months that Hannan has been gone. Hannah has bad feelings about this. Her mother’s fiance does, however, provide Hannah with a first class ticket for the travel from London to New York.
In the first class lounge, Hannah meets a cute red-headed boy, “T,”not realizing at first that he’s pop star, Theo Callahan. He is sweet and nice and looks out for her, understanding that’s she terrified of flying. She fantasizes that he could just be “The One” to give her her first kiss.
Sarah Vance-Tompkins’ writing style is so smooth and the story so well-paced that I was immediately swept up. My only criticism would be the author’s use of perceived teen slang that ‘totes’ stood out because of its infrequency and superfluousness.
Both Hannah and Theo were sweet characters with rapport. This is a light book that fulfills that niche-requirement of romantic, sweet, and smiley. Kisses on a Paper Airplane asks you to go on a ride, encompassing two days and a night, and sometimes that’s just fine.
Sorry for the number of “sweets” but maybe that too tells you something.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Inkspell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
