Book Review For The Kissing Booth

Rochelle Evens – Pretty, popular, and never been kissed.

Noah Flynn – Badass, volatile, and a total player.

When Elle decides to run a kissing booth for the school’s spring carnival, she locks lips with Noah and her life is turned upside down. Her head says to stay away, but her heart wants to draw closer… this romance seems to be far from a fairy tale romance, and more like one heading for heartbreak.

Will Elle get her happy ever after?

it’s fun, funny, cute, full of a beautiful friendship between a boy and a girl, which never goes any further, and acute complicated relationship that blossoms from one kiss. What more could you want from a young adult romance book?

    This looks really cute! I’m a middle school teacher and I’m always looking for books to recommend to students. I like that you said it never really blossoms to more than friendship–I have so many parents that are a little too “helicopter-y” about what their kids are reading and I have had some interesting conversations at conferences when they weren’t happy with books I recommended to their student (usually girls), even though I’ve read them myself and felt they were appropriate.

    Do you think this would be appropriate for readers between ages 12-14? Or is it best left for high school kids? Thanks!

    Hi Jayde,

    Books often contain superior detail and often have a very different story line to films that use the book for their basis. In your opinion, is the book and the film the same or are there some big story deviations? It will be great if film makers have kept to the script and both remain true to eachother.

    My girlfriend is a bigger reader same as I am.

    She is more in detective story and love story. I don’t think she know about that book. I never read it either. 

    I will suggest to her to come to your site to read your review and get the book. The way you explained it seems to be a nice book to read.

    Thank you

    Hi Jayde,

    As an avid reader you peaked my interest from the beginning. Although my genre is usually murder with a tiny bit of romance thrown in, this book is very intriguing. You gave just enough to make the reader want to read it but not enough to give away the outcome.

    I think this would be a very enjoyable read for a younger audience, and I think the beautiful friendship you mentioned will win their approval. Thanks for sharing.

    Good afternoon Jayde,

    Here I am again to have a look at what is new on your website. As I am interested in books I check now and then.

    The Kissing Booth seems like a cute story and I am sure young people will love to read it as it will often reflect their own life.

    You made me remember my first kiss, ages ago. I was in a holiday summer camp and that boy was really nice. One stolen kiss and we never saw each other again. I think I was 12 years old at that time.

    Regards, Taetske
