Additional Information

Unconfident Maisy is 16 and has never been kissed. She makes a pact with her best friend: she will kiss a boy until her next birthday! But this is more difficult than she thought because she has a crush on a guy who is out of her reach. Moreover, she often puts her foot in it and cannot find her way in the teenage world. To become more popular, she breaks up with her old friends and hooks up with the coolest girls of her class. They are annoyed by this intrusiveness and secretly make fun of Maisy all the time without her noticing. Ben is a nerd who has nothing to do with girls. He and his friends try to outdo each other with their good marks. Ben cannot admit to himself that his ambitions and goals may be set too high after all. Maisy’s and Ben’s paths cross by chance time and again until they converse with each other about their lives during a bus ride and suddenly realise how similar they are.
