Three short stories about kissing, featuring elements of the supernatural.
Three stories about the magic and daring and danger that can happen with a kiss make up LIPS TOUCH. "Goblin Fruit" concerns the modern-day challenges a goblin faces when trying to charm a girl into selling her soul, in the form of the sassy Kizzy feeling intrigued and confused by the hot new guy at school, while "Spicy Little Curses" involves the wonderfully romantic plot of a girl whose voice will kill yearning to tell her beloved how she feels. In the final story, "Hatchling," Esme discovers her life is not what it seems when her left eye changes from familiar brown to a new blue shortly before her 14th birthday. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009 and named a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award for young people's literature.
