Author: Cynthia Hand
Summary: Jo, disheartened that at 16 she still hasn't kissed a guy, auditions for Much Ado About Nothing for a shot at a first kiss with Ryan Daughtry, only it's Eric Bradshaw she's been cast to lock lips with.
Thoughts: I LOVED this! A story that includes my favorite Shakespearean play and a solid John Green/Pizza John reference is amazing, but even without those things this was a fantastic piece. The honesty, chemistry, banter, everything. I definitely want to read more by this author and I desperately wish this were a full-length novel!
