Kiss Off Blog Tour (Review, Info and Giveaway Link)

For Review: Sarah Billington
Published: May 2012


When sixteen year old Poppy Douglas writes a song about her ex-boyfriend Cam and ex-friend Nikki, she has no idea that her heartbreak is about to go global.

A local band picks up her song from Youtube and soon she's along for the ride with her own fanbase as they blow up on the local club scene and hit the international charts. Though it turns out leaving Cam behind isn't as easy as she had hoped.

Tangled in a web of unfinished homework, ill-considered sexting and a new lead-singer boyfriend, Poppy has a choice to make between the ex that inspired it all and the rock God whose poster lines the inside of half the lockers at school. But as she struggles to keep her emotional dirty laundry private, she learns that the truth can be hard to find when your life is in the headlines.

I really loved this – it’s sweet, funny and I adored the romance! Perfect for fans of Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway or Awkward by Marni Bates – I wholeheartedly enjoyed it!

I loved Poppy and her friends. All three of them shine in the story – the sensible Vanya and the slightly mad Mads – you could see how the three of them are such great friends. And I loved both Cam and Ty – I liked that the author doesn’t make Poppy’s choice an obvious one!

Plus the story is seriously funny in places. Poo Bum’s first appearance is absolutely hysterical, as is Poppy’s dads reaction to her thinking she’s being cheated on! The family dynamic is awesome – I loved it! They tease each other but obviously love each other to death too.

The romance is awesome as well. Although I would have liked to have gotten to know Ty a bit more I did really (really) like him. I also liked Cam too - he seemed sweet (and you come to realise that he might not be the bad guy after all). Ty’s story, and Poppy brush with fame makes me even more convinced I would hate it! I did love Ty’s ‘grand gesture’ though (*swoons*) And, of course, I loved the ending (I squeed a little) and it made me extra excited for the next book. I can’t wait to catch up with these characters.

Seriously good fun!

And here is some information on the author, Sarah Billington:


Sarah Billington is an Australian writer and editor who likes to write stories with love, laughs, suspense and zombies. Sometimes all in the same story. Her favouritest thing to write about are those horrendously awkward moments that come with being a teenager. Or a human being. Sarah was extremely accident-prone and klutzy as a kid and teen, so her cup runneth over with experiences of horrendously awkward moments to draw from in her writing. Thankfully, she has grown out of her klutziness. Mostly. She is, however, still an embarrassment.

She loves a variety of random things, which include Swing Dancing, Ice Hockey, Roller Derby and is a bit obsessive about paranormal investigation shows and channel E!.
