The book featured a boy named Nick as the main character. He and his best friend Marta get suspicious after their Biology teacher – Bunny Starch – goes missing and the principal tries to tell everyone that she had a “family emergency”.
When I first heard about this book, I was so excited. But I was also nervous. Wonder Woman is one of my favorite superheroes and I didn’t want this book to not meet my expectations (especially after that awesome Wonder Woman movie).
I did not expect Kiss and Make Up to be like this. Actually, I forgot most of my expectations. I just know that I was shocked after trying to read it.
The main character is a girl named Emerson. And she wants to kiss a boy so badly that it’s not even funny. Oh, and when she finally does, she finds out she can read the minds of the boys she kisses. And she finds a way to use her power to her advantage. She starts kissing all the nerdy boys so that she can absorb all their knowledge. And she starts falling for a nerdy boy, which is a problem because she doesn’t want to date someone who isn’t popular.
I love superheroes, so I’m usually kind of biased whenever I read books like this. I always want to give them five stars. But I didn’t feel the need to with this one.
Normally, when I read, I get so involved in it, smiling at the dialogue and screaming mentally at the antagonists. But it wasn’t like that with this book. It was a quick, slightly entertaining read.

Okay, so this book? The perfect beach read. I couldn’t put it down. Honestly, I looked at the blurb for this and was like “Meh.” I mean, it sounded super cliche and over-the-top romance-y. But even though I low-key hate cliches, I always have to buy books like these just in case there are hidden gems out there. I’m obsessed with books that execute cliches perfectly because any author who turns a cliche into something lovable is damn good. (Because let’s face it, putting a new spin on something that’s been done before is hard.) Not many authors can do this.
But Jenn Bennett somehow managed to spin straw into gold with her words.
