It was an OK book. It helped pass some time for me.I just think so much more could have been done with it.It explores feelings most of us go through from lonliness,embarrassment,to anger and confusion when we are younger and having feelings for others for the first time .Although it's through a girl(Lissa) who is in love with her best friend Kate. One night before school began at a party Kate gets drunk and kisses Lissa. Lissa who isn't drunk has all these feelings because of it. She tries to talk to Kate about it but Kate chooses to ignore her for a couple weeks. Lissa soon realizes she has feelings for a girl and doesn't know if she's gay. And when Kate finally does decide to be friends with Lissa again she refuses to talk about the kiss with her. And it makes it harder on Lissa.

being gay isnt nasty . if u love a girl and you are a girl. or if you love a boy and you are a boy it is still love. love is love no matter in what form. we r still humans with emotions we love with our hearts not our eyes. love sees no race gender or age. we dont say ur love is degusting why should u say ours is. when we are no different than you!

Kissing Kate is, hands down, the best book I have read in a very long time, if not forever. I read it in two days and loved every second of it. Her sister reminds me so much of my sister. This book is sensitive, funny, touching, and so realistic. The characters stick with you and I can relate so much to both Lissa and Ariel. Kate not so much, but I can see what she might be thinking at a situation like this. She must be scared and feeling awkward and angry at herself and Lissa. I feel sympathetic for her, but I HATED what she called Lissa towards the end. Same with what Vanessa called Beth! Ariel and Finn are much better friends to Lissa. I love Darlin's character. Same with Jerry's. As you can see, BUY THIS BOOK PLEASE!!! It is amazing! One more thing: I am Christian and BEING GAY OR LESBIAN IS NOT A SIN. Jesus loves you so much He doesnt care who His children are born to love! He made you that way, and God is such perfection and loves His children so much He makes you just how He wants you and whether you are gay or straight , that is God's plan and ut will all work out if you STAY STRONG AND LOVE WHOEVER YOU ARE BORN TO LOVE. JESUS IS PERFECT AND LOVE IS LOVE! Y'all can know both! Love is Love and back off haters!

Kissing Kate is a well written reminder to girls everywhere to never settle for less. All over the country I know girls can relate to this book. Sure, not the majority of them, but in a country with millions of people a minority is a lot. Reading this book may help girls confused about their sexuality become a little more comfortable with it. It might push them to find out more about the situation there in so they don't feel left out in the dark. Coming out can be a very scary thing in the world, this book and other could make it feel not so bad.

Okay so this is what I have to say to people about being gay. Im christian and I think looking and people and judging them because theyre gay is wrong. And people who are christians will around treating gays wrong. It just makes christians look bad. I dont think being gay is a sin. I think having gay relationships is a sin. Not actually being. Think about everyone has the ability to lie. But that doesnt mean theyre going to. Everyone even straight people hav ethe ability to have relationships with someone of the same gender. Doesnt mean they will. So I will also ask people who think christians all hate gays to back off. An I also ask christians to stop giving people that impression. If someones gay I will love them the same way as I love others. Being gay doesnt define somone. I hate how people put labels on everyone. Its horrible. Just be yourself. So thats my oponion and I live for Jesus.

I want some of you on here who are christian or whatever your religion may be who think being gay is wrong to read the book "The childern are free" it is written by two pastors who think being gay is perfectly fine and deals with the bible and taking a closer look at what it really says

I really enjoyed this story. I feel like it was a very realistic look into the life of an lgbt teen. It was honest and the characters are extremely relatable. I wanted more at the end.

I know this book is about a topic people dont like to talk about but it is an amazing book. I wish people would give it a chance. My best friends friend is bi but that doesnt change a thing between our friendship. Just like it is in the book. Give it a chance you will love it.

I find Kissing Kate to be a pretty cute yet realistic coming of age story. I related to the main character, Lissa, a lot throughout the story. It's a pretty short novel and I read it in two days, but I was captivated by the plot and writing. The secondary characters are great, too. There isn't that happy ending that so many people long for here, so it makes the book more realistic to me. Don't get me wrong, I love a happy ending like the next person, but I get a little sick of it when I read it all the time. Life doesn't work that way. I wish I had read this novel earlier, I think it would have helped me a lot with my own sexuality. Lauren Myracle is a great writer.

So i was really into this book amd it was something i could relate to, to an extent but what got me was i was all i to this book waiting for what was going to happen next then it just ended. The ending is what really left me a little annoyed but i still loved the story and i still reccomend.

IGNORANT. That is the worst thing to be in this day & age. Very sad. I would gladly read this book, & I'm in my 30's. Gay, straight, black, white, Muslim, Christian, who cares? As long as you are a decent person & kind & good hearted. That is ALL that should matter. ~Hippie Chick~

Peop need to grow up. If you dont like how these people live there life then maybe you should just be quiet. Its not their fault if they are gay they cant help it so why cant you just accept them for who they are and move on with your life? I dont think being gay should be something to be ashamed of and people like you who think its wrong make me so angry because you are all immature people who dont understand. And if youre going to bring religion into this then why dont you think about how god made them that way and if the are sinning by being gay then why would god make them that way? How would you feel if yoi were mean to someone for being gay and then you found out they killed themselves? Or what if your best friend who you had known for years came out and told you they were gay? Would you treat them any differently? If you said yes then you are a horrible person and deserve to be shunned for your entire life. I kniw this probably wont change anyones mind about being gay but i hope you at least think about it before you go and say something about it. And to ms myracle i say You rock!

This book was ok... it wasnt anything amazing I was waiting the whole time for it to really get going but it never did. I would reccomend this book to someone who likes to read something with no meaning.

I enjoyed Kissing Kate, even though it really let me down. I had been expecting a better plot, although the character development was okay. I liked Kate's character, but I couldn't get emotionally attached to her fate. It's a nice book, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to read it.

This is a good book and why are people worrying about likeing the same sex being a sin? If you have a problem with gay dont read the book. And people cant help if they are gay or not its how they were made. And for the people saying its wrong to be gay your the reson people that are gay kill their self. So stop worrying abot if its wrong or not,is it affecting you?NO SO STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
