The International Kissing Club
The International Kissing Club by Ivy Adams
Piper, Cassidy, Mei, and Izzy have been best friends their whole lives. And they've always agreed on one goal: to get out of tiny Paris, Texas, and see the world. The school's foreign exchange program seems like the perfect escape: Piper will go to the original Paris; Mei will go to China; Cassidy will go to Australia; and Izzy, unable to afford the program, will stay at home. To add spice to their semester away, and to stay connected to their best friends, the girls start The International Kissing Club, a Facebook page where they can anonymously update one another and brag about all the amazing guys they're meeting. After all, these girls are traveling abroad: amazing guys abound at every turn! But sometimes fun, flirty vacation flings turn into more serious romances, and sometimes you don't return from abroad the same person you were. Will the girls' relationships-and their friendships-be able to survive?
This was such a fun read! I read this book in one sitting. It was so cute that I did not want to put it down. I loved that it told the story through the perspective of the four different girls. Each chapter was a different girl's perspective. I loved hearing about what all was happening to them! My three favorite things about this book:
1. The sweet friendships between these girls
2. The kisses. Oh goodness the kisses ;)
3. I've been to all of these places (Texas, China, Australia, Paris) so I knew what they were experiencing in a sight-seeing sense.
It was very cool, and I really enjoyed reading this book.
The one thing I didn't like was that the book seemed to drag on. Once everyone got back home I felt like the book wouldn't end.
