|About the Book|
Dannielle Nebinski (First French Kiss and Other Traumas)Genre: HumorFirst French Kiss and Other Traumas is a delightfully entertaining book about one boys life and his adventures through childhood and adolescence. The story is written in the voice of a boy named Will, as he recounts his childhood traumas that seem to him to be both major and minor incidents. The book has both a humorous tone as well as a more serious tone at times, as he explains his first make-out session, and talks about how at the age of 10 he became one of the popular boys, but also as he explores life and mortality and begins to ponder what it is that will make him a man.Adam Bagdasarian has written a delightful, engaging book for young adults. It is made even better by the fact that it is told at ponts, from the perspective of Will as an older man looking back and reflecting on these incidents. This brings in some adult wisdom that tends not to be thought about by a normal teenager. This is an excellent read for any young adult looking for a little humor.
