Kiss Number 8

Kiss Number 8 Review

Amanda can’t figure out what’s so exciting about kissing. It’s just a lot of teeth clanking, germ swapping, closing of eyes so you can’t see that godzilla-sized zit just inches from your own hormonal monstrosity. All of her seven kisses had been horrible in different ways, but nothing compared to the awfulness that followed Kiss Number Eight. An exploration of sexuality, family, and faith, Kiss Number Eight is a coming-of-age tale filled with humor and hope.

    I found myself totally engaged with this family drama despite its fairly slow pace and a possibly triggering amount of (view spoiler)[transphobia and homophobia (hide spoiler)]. I didn't feel nearly d...

    This is my first graphic novel/comic book style of writing that was in an actual chapter book length that I’ve ever read. I was hesitant at first because I generally steer clear of this type of writ...

    This is a really hard story to read in places. Many of the characters are blatantly transphobic and homophobic, but that doesn't mean that this work is. Kiss Number 8 is an important coming out story ...
