Emma’s whole dream is for both her and her boyfriend to be cast as the leads in their high school’s production of The Song of Music. It’s basically a shoe in too. Or so she thought.

Things don’t turn out the way she thought. Emma doesn’t get cast next to her popular boyfriend. Also Biker Mike, the resident bad boy, gets into the play. Things go topsy turvy when she finds out maybe the rumors of Mike might not be true. Emma’s not sure what to do as her friends don’t accept him. Plus she’s feeling things for Mike that she shouldn’t considering she has the so-called ‘perfect’ boyfriend. Or does she? Is it possible feelings can change?

WHEN MIKE KISSED EMMA is one of those romantic tales you want to curl up with and read. Add the excitement of the school play and a cute guy with a past that is mysterious. Marciniak does a great job showing the emotions that go through Emma as she struggles with that age old problem of fitting in. Should she go with what she feels? Or stay with the safe more acceptable solution?

The pacing is great. So is the dialogue set behind The Song of Music. Very appropriate for middle graders too. Those who enjoy clean romances will love WHEN MIKE KISSED EMMA. Romance, mystery, drama, friendships, and loyality--this book has it all.

And the kiss? Let’s just say it’s one that all girls imagine and want. This is a sure hit for those who love clean romantic tales set behind the drama called high school.

Christine Marciniak loves to write and even dreamed of acting when she was younger. A former editor, now she’s a stay at home mother of two children. Find out more at
