My most recent review.
The first book for two so far, Split by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja. It has a brilliant cover, and is defiantly a brilliant story. I have much praise for it. The main character is called Jo and she has recently moved with her Mum to America.
Jo’s Mum has been moved on a business trip, and Jo has decided to leave her irritating father and his awful fiancé behind, in rainy England. But once they get there it’s not all dandy and swell. The first party she goes to ends up being the worst two. After an ‘interesting’ encounter with jock Jake Matthews, she splits. Literally. Into nerdish before kiss Jo, and popular loved Josie. The book explores the two split lives of Jo, and tells you both sides of her story. Eventually Jo joins back together but which side will she choose?
I defiantly love this book. And to be honest I think anyone would. It’s a generally a good, nice book to read. I think it’s great how you get both sides of the story, so you can make you own choices about Jo. The plots good, and there’s always something happening, which is always good. Plus the cover is brilliant. Like all the other Lusia book covers. They are catchy and bright.
The only thing that annoyed me, and I know this is really stupid but anyway, was the writing in the cool girl side of the story looked slightly bigger than the other writing. And I don’t know why but that was a little annoying.
But generally and all round great book. For this I would most certainly give a 4 out of 5 star.
This is the review I have done of Lusia PLaja's Extreme Kissing. Be sure to get yourselves a copy. It's brilliant.
Extreme Kissing by Luisa Plaja is a fantastic well written book. I defiantly recommend to teenage girls who love stories to stick to. It’s split into two people’s point of view. Normal, plain steady boyfriend, boffin Beth . And crazy Spanish senorita Carlota.
One morning Beth goes round Carlota’s house to save her from being grounded. The plan is to go to the library and get some hard core studying done. But Carlota has another plan. She wants to go and live it up in London. Eventually she guides Beth into coming with her, and they start to extreme travel. The extreme travel is guided by Carlota’s favourite magazine teen spice. They set each other daring challenges to do and a series of events ends Carlota meeting up with someone she didn’t expect to. Or did she? Whilst in London the girls encounter many problems and end up kissing, fighting crime, suffering injury, test stressin’ and much more.
I’d give more of a detailed but I’ll give too much away! So much happens and it’s so exciting. And very very gripping. Defiantly one I found hard to put down. I think my favourite character would have to be Beth. She was constantly stressing (like me!) about tests. And quite a lot more. . . but you’ll have to read it for yourself to find out what. I also liked Carlota’s trade mark laugh mwaa-ha-ha. Who doesn’t want an evil laugh like that.
The only bad thing was sometimes it was a little confusing. With the book written in two points of view, it was sometimes a bit hard to remember who was thinking what. But other than that I LOVED IT! I give it 4 out of 5 stars. A break from all the mythical books (vampire, werewolves, fairies etc...) and wonderful. Be sure to check it out yourself. If you don’t you’re missing out.
