Book Review: Glitter Kiss


Glitter Kiss focuses on a teenage girl named, Tinka. Tinka is made fun of because of rumors being spread about her. One day she is walking around and meets up with Sylvia. Sylvia is another teenager who can read palms and tells Tinka she has special powers. A weird event transpires, which for some reason neither of them think anything about. Tinka then goes to the mall and purchases a pretty, glittery lip gloss. This is when it gets really interesting! Tinka meets up with her boyfriend, Jason, and they share a nice little SECRET kiss. You see Jason doesn't want people to know he is dating Tinka because then he would ruin his rep or something.

It's the Kiss!
Anyway, Jason definitely gets his because he wakes up to a huge change in himself. What was really surprising is that even after the change his mother made it seem like all was normal. Also what was weird was that the school was so accepting of it as well and just went on like nothing had happened. This part wasn't very realistic, but then again its a story and hell anything can happen in stories. Either way Jason finds out real quick that girls don't have it so easy, and that our lives are full or torment and other bad stuff. Also Jason finds he isn't alone as the "ailment" spreads to a few of his friends.

Overall the message was good, the drawing was good, and the story was well put together. I liked it and I think you guys will too!
