Kate and Lissa shared a kiss at a party over the summer. Kate was drunk at the time, and now she is humiliated and won't speak with Lissa. Lissa doesn't understand why Kate won't speak with her anymore or why she is so insistent that the kiss was a complete accident. As Lissa struggles to come to terms with herself and her sexuality, she also is struggling with her friendships, both with Kate and with her new friend Ariel.

This book was a very quick read, and like many of the books published by Penguin's imprint Speak, dealt with a major teen issue: sexuality. I didn't find this book to be as definitive or essential as the other works of fiction I have read. It was worth the read, but probably would be better checked out of a library than purchased at a bookstore.
