The Lovereading4Kids comment

United under the banner of flash fiction, this is a collection of stories, or little 'cells', complete in themselves but connected by the overarching themes of betrayal and revenge. Featuring teenagers and often with an unexpected twist, these frighteningly realistic stories takes you to the very edge and beyond.

Reviews

Here's a rare treat. There is care and quality in all his books, and The Kissing Game is a smart, challenging collection that teenagers may find themselves reluctant to leave -- Patrick Ness Guardian Short stories are the perfect vehicle to capture the intensity of emotion experienced by teenagers on the brink of adulthood and there couldn't be a more rewarding and contemporary volume than this ... Provocative and beautifully written, this little book packs a hefty punch -- Sally Morris Daily Mail Chambers has never lost that adolescent vulnerability and openness [so] that, now in his seventies, he still writes stories in which reflective adolescents will surely discover themselves ... Five stars -- Geoff Fox Books For Keeps Aidan Chambers offers thought-provoking short stories for older readers in The Kissing Game. Playful or intriguing, each provides food for thought as he explores the nature of betrayal and revenge - wonderful stuff -- Marilyn Brocklehurst The Bookseller Classy, thought-provoking, witty and always provocative -- Jill Murphy The Bookbag
