I'm usually hesitant to pick up a YA novel from an unknown author. So many times, YA is peppered with sex, foul language, and paranormal topics I'm not comfortable with. But when I read the description for Sarah Vance-Tompkins' Kisses on a Paper Airplane, I couldn't resist giving the book a shot. It just sounded adorable!

Drama student Hannah Evans isn't kissing any frogs on her path to find Prince Charming. She's determined to share the perfect first kiss -- with the perfect boy --in the perfect place -- or she's not kissing anyone at all. When Hannah meets a cute ginger-haired boy in first class lounge in the London airport, she knows he's 'The One.' 

Pop star Theo Callahan is on the road to get as far away as possible from his back-stabbing best friend, and his supermodel girlfriend who broke his heart. Until one shy smile from Hannah has him rethinking all of his travel plans. Theo is smitten, but he's worried she's just a groupie in search of the ultimate selfie. 

Can Theo learn to trust Hannah in time to share one perfect first kiss, or will Hannah be forced to kiss a frog?

What teenage girl hasn't dreamed about meeting a famous boy and having him fall for her? (Really, it can't be just me!) Those dreams come true for Hannah—with a twist—in Kisses on a Paper Airplane.

Though it's incredibly short (I read it in under an hour), Kisses on a Paper Airplane is simply adorable. Most of the action takes place in airports, as Hannah and "T" (as Theo introduces himself to the girl who clearly has no idea of his identity) travel from London to Chicago. Their "meet cute" is really cute, and I enjoyed watching them get to know each other.

While it would have benefitted from a bit more length—I would have loved to get to know Hannah's family a bit better, and a few details were left out here and there—the content that is there is really cute. 3 stars.

Content note: A few mild curses are in the novel. There's also one kissing scene that gets pretty passionate. It's mild compared to many things, but I'd still be uncomfortable giving this book to a young teen.
