The Kiss

book | Fiction | 2015
World → Hachette Children's Books

'Aphrodite kissed a mortal once by the light of the moon. It drove him crazy. The next person that he kissed - boum! The craziness travelled from person to person. It travelled through time. Everywhere - boum! And now I'm going to pass it to you...'

Imagine the perfect kiss. A legendary kiss that makes people crazy with love.

One summer's night, on a moonlit beach, French boy Laurent kisses 16-year-old Delilah.


Delilah is pretty sure the Kiss is fiction, despite her head-spinning holiday fling. But with all the sudden crushes, break-ups and melt-downs happening back at home, the Kiss starts looking a little too real for comfort. If only Delilah could keep track of where it's gone...
