    Tender & Witty!
    From the first few pages of Shelton's Kissing Games of the World, I was hooked! Her characters just spring to life and become people you know. She writes about ordinary people living their lives the best they can. She does it in a tender and witty way and she's made a fan out of me. This is the first time I've read one of Shelton's books, but now I will definitely go back for her others.

    Great Story
    This is the first book I've read by Sandi Kahn Shelton and I loved it! The author is a great storyteller and I had trouble putting it down. Her easy, readable style brings complex characters and situations to life. I'm purchasing Shelton's other two novels after fully enjoying this one. Highly recommended!

    This wonderful book is going to need a sequel!
    This latest novel by Sandi Kahn Shelton is one of those rare stories that truly grabbed me on page 1. I got caught up with everyone's life, even Nate, whom I found to be a bit TOO obnoxious at first (sorry, I instinctively LOATHE anyone who calls anyone, especially children, 'dude'). The dialog rang true - I could hear all of the characters speaking in my head, something that only happens when I feel the author has really nailed how real people talk. These are some messed up characters, but I liked everyone anyway!

    I was sorry when the book ended, but really, really want to revisit these characters down the road, maybe when Arley and Christopher become teenagers?! I have already passed this on to my sister with glowing reviews and I plan to go back and read Shelton's previous novels.
