High school drama--and magic!
By QB Bookworm
The Quail Bell Crew's Christine Stoddard recently confessed that she didn't mind Twilight all that much. Does that mean we're going to loosen up and share some of our current YA book picks? Hell, yes! If you're looking for some rousing romance, supernatural powers, and oodles of high school drama, we'd like to recommend Kiss & Make Up by Katie D. Anderson. First off, mad props to another Southern girl debuting her first novel. Anderson attended The Collegiate School in QB HQ, Richmond, Virginia. Now she's living in Oxford, Mississippi, the long-time home of William Faulkner.
But back to the book: Kiss & Make Up is about a lip gloss-obsessed teen named Emerson Taylor. She's tasked with navigating the typical high school maze. You know, grades, tests, homework, friends, boys, boys, and more boys, etc. The difference between her and everyone else is that she can read the mind of anyone she kisses. So, yeah, she's smart (and manipulative) enough to use that to her advantage.
Bury your nose in this book to find out exactly how Emerson handles her plight. There's a lot of smooching and it's a quick read. Kick back, relax, and transport yourself to the days when (hopefully) all you had to worry about was forgetting your lock combination.
