Never Been Kissed by Melody Carlson

Never Been Kissed

New School = New chance for that first kiss

Summer is ending, and for once that doesn't seem like such a bad thing to Elise. She's hoping that starting fresh at a new high school will turn her first-kiss prospects around. New guys, new friends, and a new lease on life.

What she wasn't counting on was all the new pressure--to hang with the right crowd, wear the right clothes, and date the right guy. Just when it seems she's on top of the world, everything comes crashing down. Could one bad choice derail her future?


This book is written from the point of view of a sixteen year old girl who has, you guessed it, never been kissed. It has all the attitude and sassy-ness of a sixteen year old girl. It shows how much pressure a girl can be under to say what others expect and how that can lead to more lies to cover that up. It also shows how we can misunderstand things. Things aren't always as they appear to be. It is hard when you are trusting of others. The world can have some people who are out for themselves and don't care who they hurt to get what they want. 

This is a cute book for young teens to help them understand how to make the right choices and how to handle things if they are going through a really hard and challenging situation. Standing firm when no one believes you isn't always easy, but God is there to help you through it.
