Maybe you’d want to be with her whether she was a girl or a boy. All Ariel did was feed Lissa “you-go-girl”, Life lessons kissibg control her life.
Everything was blurry because the subplots kept eating away the myraclf until it was hardly there. It’s a pretty short novel, which I found was kinda a pity, not that it is a flaw, but I’d like to learn more. You gave me an interesting premise, decent main characters, and pretty good chemistry between the main couple something I find majorly lacking in most YA books, especially YA LGBTmyracoe you failed in one of the most important areas — your subplots sucked ass. But with the help of a free-spirit new friend, Lissa’s beginning to find the strength to realize that sometimes falling in love with the wrong lauuren is the only way to find your footing.
There was maybe one scene focusing on Kate and Lissa, two minor scenes with them, and that’s it. With that said – it all seemed fairly realistic, down to the stigma that comes with being gay, especially in the south.
Rather, she goes about the business of her life, school, work, and along the way she puts the pieces of herself together. This was a great portrayal of a questioning teen who doesn’t quite know what to label themselves as, which is what most teens are, when they’re first figuring themselves out. But with a keen sense of humor, a flaky new friend, and a book on lucid dreams, Lissa finds the bravery to examine her own desires and discovers that falling in love with the wrong person can be one way of finding your footing.
Lauren Myracle is an American author of YA fiction. Lissa tells Kate she wasn’t drunk and isn’t sure how she feels about Kate or herself.
Kissing Kate – Lauren Myracle – Google Books
Kissing Kate helps the reader to understand how difficult coming out can be for yourself and those around you. Come to think of it, much of what the author wrote was not important to the story.
Karen Klein, Staff Reviewer. By no means was it because of the plot. This book started off really great, honestly. Mitch knows his life is on kissijg verge of big changes.
They’ll hear the climax–Andy Beast invading the janitor’s closet, and Melinda coming to terms with what happened that night. Kate and Lissa have been best friends for four years, doing everything together.
Give The Dark My Love. It is true that there could more character development, but most young adult novels are meant to be light, quick reads. Why were the relevant to the main plot? Lissa, our main character, is confused and scared and angry.
The latter was meaningful enough – trying to date a boy can really make things clear for someone in the way of their sexuality. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

kissig A Novel, by Sylvia Brownrigg. Interestingyou can’t answer my questions. I’m not buying that. Already have an account? I liked Kate because she was real and I could understand her Overall this was a good book, but really nothing more.
Kissing Kate — Lauren Myracle
And then at her work place there’s this new girl whom she knew at elementary school and who at all cost wants to be her friend. This book is a realistic depiction of what some teenagers go through; an attraction to a close friend. What did the sub-plots add? Then one summer night Kate kissed Lissa-and Lissa kissed her back.
I was looking forward to more romance. I especially loved Ariel. It shouldn’t be so hard to talk about this stuff. From Darlene I think this was her name I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is LGBT lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered or for anyone who knows someone who is.
Overall, it’s a good read. A kiss that for a brief moment has Lissa reaching for the stars, until Kate, clearly unhinged by the situation, runs to the nearest boy and leaves Lissa utterly alone.
They will tempt you, tease you, serve you, but won’t actually do anything until the end of the night, when everyone else is gone. I turned to the last page and thought there had been a mistake. The progression of Lissa and Kate’s relationship was probably the most bittersweet part of the book, as well as my favorite.
Return to Book Page. On this front, I was satisfied. Every time Lissa tried it or discussed it I was just kind of done. My favorite thing about the book was the lack of labels. I tried reading Empress of the World.
