Summary

Sylvie and Carl have been friends since they were tiny children. They've always played together, called each other boyfriend and girlfriend and, deep down, Sylvie has always believed that they'd end up married to each other. They even have a magical fantasy world that belongs to them alone.

But as they become older, things are starting to change. Sylvie would still rather spend all her time with Carl – but Carl has a new friend, Paul, who is taking all his attention. Now, Carl seems much less happy to be called Sylvie's boyfriend – and in a game of spin the bottle, he avoids having to kiss her. Sylvie can tell his feelings have changed and that their future together might not be so clear-cut after all. But can she guess at the true reasons behind it all?

Touching and compelling, Kiss is a delicately handled treatment of love and sexuality from award-winning author Jacqueline Wilson.

Fine

It's so sad how Jacqueline Wilson does the audio for her books would be so much better if she didn't because it ruins what would it been a good story it's about a gay boy and straight girl and the girl likes him but he doesn't like her back, bye (sorry for the spoilers)

Good

Very good, the only issue I have is that it is very similar too Jacqueline's new book 'Love Frankie'.
Overall,y daughter really liked it, though would say that if you already have the book ' love Frankie' maybe get another book. Really liked the audio.

Written By Heterosexuals for Heterosexuals

Full of silly stereotypes with no insight into the struggles of coming out. Very disappointing.

Amazing 💕

I love all the characters especially Carl. He would be a great best friend to have! I also like Sylvia and Marnda ☺ if you already read love Frankie it's quite similar to this book but I think you can still read them both.love Frankie was my favourite book by JW so that's why I really liked this book so much! So if you liked love Frankie and sad your done reading it this book is like it but a slitley difernt version of it. The narration really makes the book ☺ I love JWs voice. I definitely recommend this book for age 10+ as their are a few swear words and some older children's contents if you know what I mean. Amazing great book 💕 loved it. I
