Kiss Number 8 by Colleen AF Venable (Author) and Ellen T. Crenshaw (Illustrator)
Roaring Brook Press: First Second
Publication Date: March 12, 2019
Amanda “Mads” does not understand kissing. Kisses 1- through 7 were nothing exciting at best, and hardly tolerable at worst. Kiss number 8, with a girl, threw her for a loop. As her own experiences run parallel to a family history she previously knew nothing about, Mads discovers much about kissing, and about herself.
