" I read this book because an author I enjoy wrote a story in it. First off, I thought he wrote more than just one. And his story was co-written and happened to be a graphic novel. Did I mention I dislike graphic novels. I deemed this book two stars only because I let out a chuckle here and there. Would I recommend it? Maybe to a tweenie. " said.

" Overall it was fairly entertaining. Definitely a one hour sort of read because some of the stories are as sort as a Haiku (Scott Westerfield). My favorite by far, and the whole reason I read the book, was Shannon and Dean Hale's story. Really cute and funny. Makes me think of Star Wars in a whole different way! ;) " said.

" I read this on valentines day. what a sucker. i enjoyed this from a voyeuristic standpoint, particularly reading about shannon and dean hale's first kiss. in between diary-like stories of first kisses, the editor compiled kissing advice/trivia for young readers. i strongly dislike that aspect of the book. " said.

" A bunch of authors' memories of their first kiss(es)... I didn't really identify with any of them SINCE THEY WERE ALL LIKE THIRTEEN. I don't know if I'm just weird, but I don't remember anybody really talking about kissing in middle school in my group of friends. All four of us. Okay, maybe I'm not the target audience. But I can at least weigh in that some of the stuff between stories was suuuuuuuuuuuuper lame advice. Did that sound like a thirteen year old? " said.

"First kisses are mysterious to the young and romanticized by many. In the hands of YA authors like Scott Westerfield and Shannon Hale this book does a wonderful and varied job of shining a proverbial literary flashlight into the dark corners of the first kiss by having these master story tellers write about their first kiss.

An incredibly short and fast read; I loved it. There were times I was laughing, smiling, and even gagging. A terrific idea that will sure to captivate all 7th grade readers, even the reluctant ones! For those of us years beyond the first kiss, it was great tapping into the feelings of the pre-kissed.
" said.

"I borrowed this from one of the writers who was part of it. At first, admittedly, I thought the idea was hokey--who would want to buy a book with just quick true stories about kissing? But considering that I want to write books for teenagers, this was actually a very helpful read! It was cool to read about motivations especially--whether they wanted to kiss their one true love or just really wanted to get a first kiss over with to say they'd been kissed. Plus, I never read this kind of stuff as a teenager, and now I'm thinking I'd like to encourage my own kids to read something like this, just to see the perspective that other's people's stories can offer." said.

" It was all about some of the authors that had their 1st kiss. " said.

" Justine's was the grossest, Scott's was the funniest, but I loved David's best! " said.
