Aidan Chambers offers thought-provoking short stories for older readers in The Kissing Game. Playful or intriguing, each provides food for thought as he explores the nature of betrayal and revenge - wonderful stuff. (Marilyn Brocklehurst The Bookseller 2010-12-31)

Chambers leaves readers with much to contemplate. (Publisher's Weekly, US 2011-03-01)

Far from the romance suggested in the title, this short-fiction collection from the author of the Printz

Award-winning Postcards from No Man's Land (2002) explores dark, volatile territory in selections that

often lead to explosive, bomb-grade conclusions... the

variety of experimental formats, including scripts and letters, is refreshing, and teens will want to talk

about the recurring themes of betrayal, violence, and shifting identities, and the fleeting moments of

connection and mercy that can change a life's course.

(Gillian Engberg Booklist, USA 2011-02-15)

a provocative and varied collection of short stories for teenager... His sophisticated yet simple style is perfectly suited for an exploration of the new form of flash fictions... Thoughtful, challenging reading for teens on the cusp of adulthood. (Kirkus Review, USA 2011-02-15)

... each one will incite, surprise and stimulate... the prose is precise, witty and elegant... The Kissing Game is classy, thought-provoking, witty and always provocative. (Jill Murphy The Bookbag 2011-02-14)
