HORRIBLE Book

The movie is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better and this book is soooo inappropriate. It is FILLED with sex and lots of language. It is VERY cringy and it's a horrible book. How it got published is beyond me.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

The kissing booth

I really liked it but I found that it lacked detail. I found myself wanting more. I feel like they should have added more detail to Elle and Noah’s relationship. Also the ending was not the best I wanted to know what happens between Noah and Elle. I feel like it was a glimpse into a teenagers life and how it’s confusing and you find yourself in difficult places. Overall a decent movie

Peek into the chaos of a teenagers life

This book/movie is light hearted with a balance of the hard decisions of reality. Following a girls choice between sacrificing her happiness for the happiness of her best friends or following her heart. The characters are well developed and allow for a real connection. This book details that all people go through tough stages, difficult choices and harsh realities as they grow up. As for the drinking and sexual content- it’s realistic and should not be judged. 10/10 would recommend.

Almost a cute movie!

I watched this movie on Netflix. I couldn’t even finish it. It starts out with a fun and loving relationship with Elle and her best friend Lee and Elle having a crush on his older brother. It soon becomes about the glorification of consequence-free teenage drinking, sneaking around, lying and having consequence-free sex. I was really disappointed. I feel like without the sex and the alcohol the story would have been much better for the audience it was intended. It was very unnecessary. I don’t feel like there is anything uplifting about this movie. I don’t see how this movie will benefit young teenagers in any way.
