Description

Carlota and Bethany are best friends. Bethany is the sensible one with a long-term boyfriend, Carlota is the crazy one with a wild past and rebellious nature. All is fine in their world - apart from Carlota hating her stepdad and longing for a old flame. And apart from Bethany thinking her boyfriend is about to dump her and that her period is late...Carlota comes up with a plan to put all their troubles behind them and go on a girls-only wild day out, with only their favourite magazine to guide them through the day. If they open it on a fashion page they have to get hold of a fabulous new outfit and pretend to be models. If they open it to a page on snogging, they have to find a boy to snog. The magazine will take them everywhere they need to go - but will it help them to reveal the secrets they are keeping from each other?show more

Review quote

"Plaja's humour is subtle and the dialogue betwen the girls is spot on. The idea to write the novel from the point of view of both girls is genius" -- Carly Bennett The Bookbag "Luisa Plaja's second novel is as brilliant as her first, if not better. The story flows and the characters are well developed and extremely easy to like and relate to" So Many Books So Little Time "Once again, Luisa Plaja has taken a chicklit book, and made it so much more than that" About Books For Teens "Bridget Jones meets the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. A hilarious and entertaining read" Ultimate Book Hound "I'd recommend Extreme Kissing to anyone who enjoys a fun, girly story with genuine heart. Heck, I'd recommend it to anyone who has a heart. It's a must-read" I Was a Teenage Book Geekshow more

Our customer reviews

Bethany and Carlota have been best friends ever since Carlota moved from Brussels. Ever since then, Carlota has been pining after her ex, Yves, though she doesn't let on, having everyone believe that she's only interested in Kisses Etcetera with a bunch of random guys. With her boy snaring techniques, Bethany soon finds herself with her own boyfriend, Declan, but what happens when she has a pregnancy scare? Before knowing Bethany's secret, Carlota comes up with a day out doing extreme challenges using magazines to reveal another secret to her best friend. EXTREME KISSING was a very interesting novel. Throughout the book, the two girls are hiding things from each other but would rather run around London doing crazy tasks instead of owning up to the truth. However, in the end, Carlota's plan to make Bethany chill out does work, but Carlota begins to understand all the worries that Bethany used to carry around. I was quite shocked by the end of this story. Things aren't quite what they seem in EXTREME KISSING, and it just added to this story's greatness. If everything was obvious with a happily-ever-after ending, it wouldn't have been as good, but instead, you get romance, lies, mystery, breaking out and living life, and the true meaning of friendship.show more
