Never Been Kissed: A Novel paperback Never Been Kissed kindle edition

Vertical Reach = 3
We know that Elise is a Christian and she does pray a few times during the story. The relationship she has is God is not shown so much as it is told.

Ministry Message = 4
Wait on God's timing, His ways are not our ways. Also, the truth will set you free...ALWAYS!

Craft = 4
Melody Carlson has written over 200 books so her ability to tell a story is beyond rock solid it is excellent. Her dialogue is spot on for the young adult reader and paced well to enjoy the story. The characters are fleshed out well and easy to follow. I would have liked to see a little more diversity in the secondary characters.

Aesthetics = 4
Cover is very accurate which I LOVE! The girl on the front is easily the Elise. You will absolutely believe it. It is great for the young adult reading market targeted.

Dollar$ & $ense = 3.75
If you are looking for a relevant and clean read for the young middle or high school girl in your life this is a great book. Teen bookclubs in church youth groups especially would be able to have very relevant discussions about what happens with Elise and her frenemies.
“Available January 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
