Book Review #317 - The International Kissing Club by Ivy Adams

The International Kissing Club

Piper, Cassidy, Mei, and Izzy have been best friends their whole lives. And they've always agreed on one goal: to get out of tiny Paris, Texas, and see the world. The school's foreign exchange program seems like the perfect escape: Piper will go to the original Paris; Mei will go to China; Cassidy will go to Australia; and Izzy, unable to afford the program, will stay at home. To add spice to their semester away, and to stay connected to their best friends, the girls start The International Kissing Club, a Facebook page where they can anonymously update one another and brag about all the amazing guys they're meeting. After all, these girls are traveling abroad: amazing guys abound at every turn! But sometimes fun, flirty vacation flings turn into more serious romances, and sometimes you don't return from abroad the same person you were. Will the girls' relationships-and their friendships-be able to survive?
My Rating: 4/5
I received this book for review from Bloomsbury Australia.
I didn't really expect much as the premise didn't really appeal to me. I am really glad that I read it though as I really enjoyed it.
This book was written by a few authors, and for the most part the writing really does reflect this. Piper's personality was too dominant compared to the others in the first half of the book.
I really liked the idea of the book being set in numerous international locations. However, I thought that a lot more could have been made about that.
My favourite character was probably Cassidy, simply because she went to Australia I was able to relate to her experience more than the others.
