  • Here's a rare treat. There is care and quality in all his books, and The Kissing Game is a smart, challenging collection that teenagers may find themselves reluctant to leave

    Patrick Ness, Guardian
  • Short stories are the perfect vehicle to capture the intensity of emotion experienced by teenagers on the brink of adulthood and there couldn't be a more rewarding and contemporary volume than this . . . Provocative and beautifully written, this little book packs a hefty punch

    Sally Morris, Daily Mail
  • Chambers has never lost that adolescent vulnerability and openness [so] that, now in his seventies, he still writes stories in which reflective adolescents will surely discover themselves . . . Five stars

    Geoff Fox, Books For Keeps
  • Aidan Chambers offers thought-provoking short stories for older readers in The Kissing Game. Playful or intriguing, each provides food for thought as he explores the nature of betrayal and revenge - wonderful stuff

    Marilyn Brocklehurst, The Bookseller
  • Classy, thought-provoking, witty and always provocative

    Jill Murphy, The Bookbag
