Kissing Kate by Lauren Myracle | Scholastic

Ray Vs the Meaning of Life. The topic of Lissa questioning her sexual identity turns out to not be the only prominent theme in the book.

You gave me an interesting premise, decent main characters, and pretty good chemistry between the main couple something I find majorly lacking in most YA books, especially YA LGBTbut you failed in one of the most important areas — your subplots sucked ass.



Yet reading it as an adult, I can see the things that could be construed as flaws. Dear Kissing Kate, Why did you do that to me? I would definitely recommend this book to laurej who is LGBT lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered or for anyone who knows someone who is.

Move on and see the happiness of life. Did not do anything. With that said – it all seemed fairly realistic, down to the stigma that comes with being gay, especially in the south. I think they were just added in to pump this novel up to 50k.

They were really alive in this novel. They suffer when needless, boring subplots are added. Now, for the love interest — Kate.

No wrap up, no amends, no nothing. If there’s still a story beneath all that subplotting, that is. Lissa goes through a great many emotions while she comes to terms with her new feelings for Kate.

Jun 18, Andrea rated it really liked it Shelves: Still, I’m trying to keep up with all of the books that I’ve read this year I think that I’ve only missed a couple of reviews so here it goes.

Besides that, the story could have been so. I’m not buying that. Why have Lissa question it, have Ariel act possessive and strange, have Finn act all self-conscious and no one say what was really wrong with it? The latter was meaningful enough – trying to date a boy can really make things clear for someone in the way of their sexuality.

This is a quick read, which covers a couple of months in the life of Lissa, whose point of view the story is told from.

If you call Kate having to deal with being gay and outing herself to society, which can be harsh, Kate “treating you like crap”, then you have a serious problem, Ariel. Refresh and try again. I borrowed this book from the library because first of the all, I really liked the cover and second of all, the blurb on the back sounded interesting. The Key to Everything.

Which didn’t bother me, because Ariel was just another random subplot, and didn’t affect the story in anyway. I wished something more dynamic had happened, but some books do work better as quiet character studies. Lissa is a character that definitely goes through a lot. We’d like to think that Lissa is going to be OK, but you’re left with the feeling that you can’t be sure.
