Glitter Kiss - Adrianne Ambrose, Monica Gallagher 2.5 stars.Tinka, the school “slut”, unwittingly gets revenge on jerky guys when she kisses them wearing a magical lip gloss. Let’s just say it makes them see things from her point of view. It was a pretty cute story, but a little throat-ramming with its message. It also has a kinda negative view on gender – most of the boys are complete a-holes and it focuses a lot on how hard it is to be a girl. This is a graphic novel and I don’t have a lot of experience with them, but the characters – especially the secondary characters – were quite two-dimensional. The ending was really abrupt, which detracted from the overall experience. The illustrations were lovely, however.I received a review copy from the publishers via Netgalley.
