Project Description

Bethany Neal writes YA novels with a little dark side and a lot of kissing form her Ann Arbor, Michigan home. She is obsessed with (but not limited to): nail polish, ginormous rings, pigs, dream analysis, memorizing song lyrics, pickles, dessert, predestined love, not growing up, sour gummy candies, music videos, Halloween, and fictional boys who play guitar. You can find her locked in her Writertorium for insane amounts of time. But, hey, insanity is fun! Her debut novel MY LAST KISS will be published by FSG Books for Young Readers June 10, 2014.


What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy?

Cassidy Haines remembers her first kiss vividly. It was on the old covered bridge the summer before her freshman year with her boyfriend of three years, Ethan Keys. But her last kiss—the one she shared with someone at her seventeenth birthday party the night she died—is a blur. Cassidy is trapped in the living world, not only mourning the loss of her human body, but left with the grim suspicion that her untimely death wasn’t a suicide as everyone assumes. She can’t remember anything from the weeks leading up to her birthday and she’s worried that she might have betrayed her boyfriend.

As her journey goes on, she learns Ethan is the only person who can still see and touch her, and she begins having out-of-body flashbacks that reveal small glimpses into the events that led to her death. But the pieces are out of sequence and only seem to further confuse Cassidy’s situation. The more she observes from her friends, each mourning her for their own shielded reasons, the longer her suspect list grows.

If Cassidy is to uncover the truth about that fateful night and make amends with the only boy she’ll ever love, she must face her past and all the decisions she made—good and bad—that led to her last kiss.

Praise for My Last Kiss

“Cassidy is sure she had no reason to end her life, and she cannot move on until she discovers how she really died . . . The story unfolds as her spirit is pulled uncontrollably from one grief-stricken friend or family member to another, and to reliving the events that led to her death.” – School Library Journal
