Was trolling around the Internet and noticed this nice review for WHO I KISSED, which I really think addressed something I've heard a few times about the book...
Here's a section of it... Warning. *It's very positive.
Which is why I'm posting it. Ha ha ha.
On Librarything: WHO I KISSED
"Some people read the synopsis and have a moment of disbelief, as if the story
couldn't possibly be good because the premise is so odd. If any variation of
this thought pops into your head, immediately grab hold of it and fling. Or
better yet, set it on fire and burry the ashes.
Who I Kissed is so much more
than the story of a boy dying from an allergic reaction. Not only does Samantha
have to deal with the tormenting of her peers, the mass media attention, the
hurt appearance of Alex's sister in the hall way, the dissolution of an
important friendship, and the fading of her dreams, but these events are all
added to the important family matters that have been filed away and ignored. The
story isn't about Alex, it isn't even about severe peanut allergies. Not to
downplay Alex's role, but he is more of an instigator to events than the subject
of the novel itself. "
