A Soul’s Kiss

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: It was cute. Ms. Chapoton isn’t going to be accused of writing the next epic work of literature, but she’s a great storyteller. The prose was cleanly written, the characters were multidimensional, and the supernatural elements straddled the line of believability perfectly. Ms. Chapoton manages to convey the dark issues modern high school students face without offensive language or imagery, and she tosses in just the right amount of levity to keep her story afloat. Her years as a high school teacher have paid off — Ms. Chapoton captures the undulating, hormonal emotions of teenagers with expert accuracy and tells a romantic little tale in the process.
Would I recommend it: Yes. It’s a great addition to the Young Adult genre.
