Synopsis

Split By A Kiss by Luisa Plaja

Jo has just moved to America with her mum. She's always been a fairly average girl - not a nerd but certainly never one of the popular kids. But on her first day in her new school, she seems to be adopted by the It girls - and is invited to one of their parties. There, she meets Jake Matthews, officially the hottest boy in school.

Reviews

A teen chick lit novel, but one written with intelligence, humour and subtlety . . . The story is slick, funny and a really good read for anyone feeling the peer pressure * The School Librarian * It's rare to find a book like this - that has a brand new, never told before story, brilliant writing, lots of very realistic scenarios and some hilarious but usually overlooked characters. It really is the ultimate in teen fiction -- Zoe Page * The Bookbag * Split by a Kiss has a strong narrative voice and punchy contemporary dialogue. The moral of this novel is that it's important to speak your true voice. And at the beginning of what will undoubtedly be a long career as a children's author, Plaja has done just that -- Vanessa Curtis * Glasgow Herald * Cute, sweet, and funny read. Fans of Louise Rennison will love it, and should be sure to put it on their Christmas wish lists! * Meg Cabot * A fast paced and touching story about teenage identities * Lovereading.co.uk *
