Must Read: The Half-Life of Planets

I was so surprised to hear that Emily Frankly has a new book out! She's one of my favorite authors, so I don't know how this slipped past me. I missed book signings and everything. Bummer. But I'm very excited to read The Half-Life of Planets (co-written with Brendan Halpin).

Lianna is an aspiring planetary scientist...and also a kissing expert. She's got a lot of experience. Maybe too much. So this summer she decides to conduct an experiment: She's going to give up the kissing part. It shouldn't be too hard for her--after all, none of her kissing partners so far have been worth the lip time. That is, until Hank comes along.

Hank has never been kissed. He's smart and funny--sometimes without intending to be--and a little socially challenged. Hank's got Asperger's syndrome. This means he knows nearly every track that Kirsty Maccoll has ever appeared on, but not when to shut up about it. Despite his loquaciousness, he also doesn't know when to say the things he should. Things like, I don't have a father, I want to hold your hand, I want to kiss you.

It would appear that Hank and Liana are in for an interesting summer--if the planets align correctly.
