SPLIT BY A KISS is published by Corgi Books at Random House Children’s Books.
“A fabulously entertaining tale of a teenager who splits in two when she has a difficult decision to make!”
Split by a Kiss is the story of a British girl who goes to live in the USA for a year and finds that the in-crowd at her new school want to be friends with her – and the hottest boy wants to kiss her. But after the kiss, she splits into two girls and goes down two paths at the same time. On one path she is in with the coolest of the cool, and on the other she… isn’t.
Does either route lead to happiness? And how will she ever be herself again?
