Book Giveaway #7 - Kissyface

Over the years, many young adult books have been focused on two characters and their first kisses. There are some classic scenes, like Bella and Edward's first kiss in Twilight and the brief, passionate kiss between Eugenides and Irene in The Queen of Attolia. One of my favorites is Westley and Buttercup's first kiss in The Princess Bride. William Goldman writes, "Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind.”

Here's your chance to tell the world about your favorite first kiss in a YA book. Say what your favorite YA first kiss is and explain why. You could win a copy of Rachel Vail's
If We Kiss.

  1. I wish that people had commented on this one! I find this a very hard thing to figure out. Just read a first kiss scene in *Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature* which was not awful but not madly memorable either.
