Yes; though I did not read the print version, I really like the voice of the narrator.
This book is very unique; I can't think of another book like it. Very clever premise.
Her voice is very smooth, and is well-suited for this book.
If I had the time, I would have!
I would not limit this book to "Young Adults"!
Personal trainer since 1988. Love a good mystery!
I hesitated when I read a review that said it is for young people. It's about young people as in Seniors in high school. That realliy isn't the point. It is also one of the most enjoyable books I've read and I read a lot! The characters are wonderful & believeable. The story is good and the ending is a suprise and one op the best parts of the book is the whitty dialog that actually made me lol many times! I can't wait to read more from this author.
There was nothing predictable about this book. The premise was brilliant. Winter is the heroine who discovers on her first date in a movie theatre that she can read people’s minds by kissing them on the lips. She ends up telling her best friend and they have a little fun with her new found power until the mysterious murder of one of her track teammates, Anika, happens in the high school bathroom. Then, Winter finds herself in a dilemma. Should she use her power to seek out the killer? Will her new love interest understand when she goes around kissing everyone? AND … who really did murder Anika?
There is no other story like this one. It is unique. I started this book on a Saturday morning and could not stop until I was finished with it. If you plan on getting something done on the day you want to read this book, don’t! Just set that thing aside, whatever it is, because once you start this book, you won’t be able to stop.
The hero and heroine, Winter and Stumblemeyer.
This story isn’t just funny and quirky, it also deals with some serious issues that teens face while they’re in high school — date rape, teen pregnancy, self-esteem problems, all while trying to figure out who they are and where their lives will be going after they graduate. Dealing with a murder on top of that just adds to the characters’ angst and explains why the heroine, Winter, often finds herself in tears. This cleverly crafted novel has you laughing and crying at every page while at the same time trying to guess what is really going on.Highly recommended for readers age 16 and older.
EVERYTHING. I don't usually answer these questions this way, but this one I must. THIS BOOK IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES EVER! It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made my palms sweat and my heart pound! It was a fun paranormal mystery PERFECT for the YA audience. Think Easy A meets Sabrina the Teenage Witch. (No witches in this story, it's completely UNIQUE paranormal, but the fun sense of magic is there). I just adored this and the characters. If I had to pick one book by Riley to read over and over again, it would be this one. I can't believe it's not a movie already! SUCH a clever concept!
Ummmm.... All of them?! Okay, but some of the character building ones were great. One of the most memorable was when she is outside the club and meets that guy and realize she was wrong about him. That's the thing with Riley's books. She really plays on perceptions, how we don't ever know someone's whole story and they might not be who we thought they were. We might have thought poorly of them when really they are a great person. She did this with Carpe DiEmily too.
There's a set of parents in this book that are HILARIOUSLY outdated in their thinking. I would love to go out to dinner with them just because they would leave you with a lot to talk about once they were gone HAHA.
Riley, please please please write more books like this one! I'm first in line to buy my copy!
One of my favorite genres is humorous mystery. It's hard to find a book I enjoyed as much as this one. The story had a unique premise of a girl who can read the minds of people she kisses. Needless to say, her power got her into some tricky situations! The love story between her and Jason was very sweet and romantic. Plus the murder-mystery kept me guessing until the end. Well written and well narrated. I enjoyed everything about this story.
