Happy Book Birthday to KISS AND REPEAT by Heather Truett!

Congratulations to Heather Truett on the release of her debut YA contemporary, KISS AND REPEAT, out today from Swoon Reads/Macmillan!

‘Stephen Luckie isn’t so lucky in love. He’s never been able to catch the eye of the girl of his dreams, no matter how hard he tries, and he wonders if his tics–caused by Tourette’s syndrome–will interfere with his love life, if he even gets that far.

When a game at a party reveals that his body goes still while kissing, Stephen has an idea. Maybe his best idea ever. He uses the scientific method drilled into him by his scientist father to begin an experiment that involves kissing as many girls as possible. Who knew science could be so fun?

But when the experiment gets underway, Stephen begins to question how he treats girls–and if his tics have been standing in his way at all. With two girls interested in him, he has to figure out what really matters to him and what he’ll risk–and gain–by being his true self.’

“Funny and at times irreverent, Truett gives us a cast of well-rounded characters to complement her endearing narrator. Stephen Luckie has the witty self-awareness of a John Green protagonist, so it’s easy to root for him, even when he’s kissing all the wrong girls!” ~ Jen Marie Hawkins, author of THE LANGUAGE OF CHERRIES

“Stephen is a richly developed character who dispels many misconceptions about Tourette’s.” ~School Library Journal
