Three Kinds of Kissing

by Helen Lamb

Once upon a time, there was a girl who lived in a house of clocks, a house that ticked like a bomb…

Officially, Olive’s only been gone one day, but Grace knows she’s been lost much longer. Her schoolmate’s disappearance forces Grace to recall the dark secrets she and Olive still share – including the one that shattered their friendship four years ago, the one that haunts Grace now. With the adults around her caught up in their own dramas and deceptions, Grace struggles to make sense of her past and present before she too becomes lost.

“Three Kinds of Kissing is a modern classic about friendship, loss of innocence and the myriad ways families can self-implode.” – Cynthia Rogerson

“Three Kinds of Kissing is the sort of book that makes you forget there is an author involved. It captures both the mood of a small-town community at a particular moment of change between the late 1960s and early 1970s, and the sulky, eager, sniping, adventurous minds of the girls who are its central characters, caught between childhood and adolescence, yearning for the security of home and family yet also desperate to escape. And it shows with unerring accuracy how, as adults, most of us never stop being the children we once were.” – James Robertson
