I checked this book out thinking it would be stories of first loves and how sweet and nice it was, but ended up being a bunch of regular stories about the people's lives that went to the dance which really didn't have anything to do with 'Kissing Tennessee' except for a little bit. I would not recommend this book at all.
Hello, my name is Susan, I'm a University of Wyoming graduate, happily married to the love of my life, Bill. We have two twin boys Michael and Matthew, who are a handful, but I love them just the same. I enjoy croquet, cooking pasta, and knitting scarves. I also like to read this little ol' book right here. This is one of the best books I have read since Cooking with Marie! And that, by the way is a very excellent book and you should read it if you haven't already! Of course I wouldn't imagine why you wouldn't want to read it! I've cooked some very good pasta using that cookbook. Dear me, that book is one swell puppy! But I'm getting a wee bit off track. What I wanted to say was, Kissing Tennessee is a bomb-diggety (I've heard Michael say that word) book and you should really go out and borrow it from the local town library!
Great book that tells short stories of teens at their school dance. It's great for all ages. It shows everybody that people are in love with someone and can not go up and and tell them the truth. From a boy who lost his girlfriend, to a girl who was raped by her boyfriend. It tells great stories of love and horrer.
The stories in this book are great. Plus it's up to date. I loved it!! (I think it deserves more stars!!)
