When Mike Kissed Emma by Christine Marciniak

Emma Landon has a plan: she's going to be in the high school musical and sing the most romantic song possible to her boyfriend. She's not looking for the lead, just a decent part where she and Trevor can dance together on stage. The plan starts to unravel when she gets the starring role, and playing opposite her is not her perfect boyfriend, but the school loner, Biker Mike. When Mike kisses Emma at the school dance, everything changes. Emma must figure out what is more important—the way things look or something deeper.
I enjoyed this book. It was short, but I thought that the author got her point across, even if the book didn't have 300 pages. The book starts out with the main character Emma trying out for a play. She gets a part in the play and so does Biker Mike, a new student who is different from everyone else. I liked how the author made Emma into a strong female character. Emma started out a bit shakily, but she worked herself up to the point where she didn't care what everyone else thought of her. I also enjoyed how Mike wasn't like everyone else thought he was. All in all, this was a good book and I'd be interested in reading another by the author.
