Kiss Number 8

Mads is pretty happy with her life. She goes to church with her family, and minor league baseball games with her dad. She goofs off with her best friend Cat, and has thus far managed to avoid getting kissed by Adam, the boy next door. It's everything she hoped high school would be... until all of a sudden, it's not.

Her dad is hiding something big — so big it could tear her family apart. And that's just the beginning of her problems: Mads is starting to figure out that she doesn't want to kiss Adam... because the only person she wants to kiss is Cat.

Kiss Number 8, a graphic novel from writer Colleen AF Venable and illustrator Ellen T. Crenshaw, is a layered, funny, sharp-edged story of teen sexuality and family secrets.

"Venable (Mervin the Sloth Is About to Do the Best Thing in the World) creates a remarkably full picture of Amanda’s life — family, school, church, baseball, the local music scene, and the corresponding and overlapping relationship dynamics. Amanda’s decisions — confronting her family about the secret, exploring her sexuality — lead to realistically messy consequences that are not easily remedied, and the way these open up and close off areas of her life is handled well. Black-and-white cartoon art by Crenshaw (Test Your Baby’s IQ) complements the narrative, offering distinct characters and conveying what the dialogue alone can’t." — Publishers Weekly
