Editorial Reviews

Barbara Corrington
Terri Pepper Gavulic has written a delightful and insightful story of first love. Honest and straight- forward, First Kiss is a gem! Perceptive and sensitive, First Kiss is a remarkable story.
James Grippando
A must read with heart, FirstKiss is a charming story of a high school girl caught up in the confusion of young romance. What sets this novel apart is the strength of its characters, who are funny, sympathetic and totally believable. Ms. Gavulic has also done a wonderful job with the pacing of her story. It never lags, and there are enough twists to keep you guessing along the way as to whether her young protagonist will make the right choices...
Anonymous Reviewer
A YA aimed at the very young adult, probably the 11-to-14 set, FIRST KISS is a delightful and insightful look at one girl's first steps toward maturation. Ms. Gavulic has ably created a character that is bewildered, searching, and, as yet, unable to trust her own knowledge of what is right and wrong for her. FIRST KISS is, very obviously, a book for girls and I would recommend it to mothers with daughters in this age group. It is innocent but very much a 90's book. Good job, Ms. Gavulic!
