Welcome to the Summer YA Scavenger Hunt!

This tri-annual event was first organized by the amazing Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors…and a chance to win some awesome prizes!

During the Scavenger Hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author (in my case the first page of GODDESS, the final book in the STARCROSSED Trilogy), you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive at least one book from each author on the hunt!  That’s over 50 books!

But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

We like to multitask in YA, so there are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM –but there is also a blue team which you can also follow for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the  YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.

Today, I am happy to be hosting Lissa Price

Here’s the lowdown on Lissa.

“Lissa Price’s debut novel STARTERS is an international bestseller published in over thirty countries. Dean Koontz called this YA futuristic thriller “a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story.” The LA Times said it is “Dystopian sci-fi at its best,” and “Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to ‘The Hunger Games’ will find it here.” Nominated for a YALSA award, STARTERS was a Barnes & Noble pick of the month and is one of ten books on the Best of the Year lists from Amazon and Chapters/Indigo.”

Here’s a brief description of STARTERS.

In a future Los Angeles, becoming someone else is now possible. Sixteen-year-old Callie discovers the Body Bank where teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again. But when her neurochip malfunctions, she wakes up in the mansion of her rich renter and finds she is going out with a senator’s grandson. It’s a fairy-tale new life, until she discovers her renter’s deadly plan.

  30. my first kiss on the cheek was in front of my high school right after the guy ask me to be his girlfriend!

  31. I went out with a friend to a party in club and met a guy I sort of liked. We chatted a bit, took a walk alone, then went back to meet with my friend back at the car, and before letting me go, he put me against the wall and kissed me.
    It wasn’t romantic and I didn’t actually enjoy it :( I feel like I’ll always have a bad memory of my first kiss.

  32. Courtney Pierce says:

    Well, I haven’t had my first kiss yet, I’m waiting on the right person.

  35. Rebecca Hipworth says:

    My very first kiss was a peck on the cheek in primary school by my huge crush of the time Jack. :)

  36. This is so awesome, I am loving the YASH!

    Out of context, my first kiss sounds slutty; it was in his bedroom. BUT! He was my friend for years beforehand, being in his room wasn’t a big deal, it wasn’t the first time. It so wasn’t slutty – and wasn’t really worth it either. Just awkward and weird.

  37. I honestly can not remember my first kiss. It might have been in a car or was it camping. I remember it was camping!

  38. Samantha says:

    Ok so I was 15 and where I’m from we would have church dances and my first kiss was with my boyfriend outside the church :)!!!

  47. Never had my first kiss yet, though I would like it somewhere interesting. Maybe a beach or library :)

  48. My first kiss was in the hallway at middle school. It was not fun, I was feeling sick and his lips were all dry. Maybe that’s why I did not like kissing until I met my husband! lol

  49. in my bedroom!

  50. Pinned on my back in what we called a balcony but was really a gutter on the third floor exterior of a 100 year old building. It was awesome.

  60. Tabby Hart says:

    So clichéd but it was at my school dance in year 6. ^^

  61. I don’t necessarily count this, BUT… on the sidewalk just a few feet from the playground after recess when I was in second grade.

  69. Sophi K. says:

    I haven’t had my first kiss… the right boy hasn’t come along yet.

  70. Very first kiss? Dang that was so long ago that I can hardly remember it, but I do believe it was in my friends room under a blanket. We were trying to play like we were adults as elementary school kids are known to do and didn’t want his parents to catch us.

  71. Caroline says:

    Haven’t had my first real kiss yet.

  75. Thanks for helping with the hunt and doing this giveaway!
    My first kiss was with Jacob Young at the homecoming dance. It was like time stood still.

  76. I was a bit of a late bloomer. I was 15 and it was at a friends house party.

  77. My first kiss was in the middle of the night (yes, i snuck out, i was a rebel back in high school) and I met up with a boy that i was crushing hardcore on and we were at a park swinging on the swings and we made out. :] It was kind of spectacular.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    xo Stephanie

  78. Under a tree next to a church I think :)

  79. First kiss? Goodness. I know it was when I was 13, with my very first boyfriend, and I remember wondering why it had actually been messy and not very pleasant, but I don’t remember where I was or what we were doing on that day.

  80. I had my first kiss at our local theater. (SO long ago!!) Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. My first kiss was wow, so long ago… I mean, it was just a kiddy kiss, but still. I was 7 years old and it was a boy named Dominic and he was in my class and we were in the gym and my friend told me I wouldn’t dare kiss him and just there, I kissed him.

  82. Ileana A. says:

    At church! *____*

  83. Molly Frenzel says:

    My first kiss was under the stairs of my apartment building.

  84. Thanks for the giveaway!! My first kiss was at sleepaway camp behind a cabin!

  85. First kiss? In the middle of the woods, of course. Because that wasn’t a bad location at all. /sarcasm

  86. I actually really adore the story of my first kiss. It was when I was 7 lol There was this kid who moved from France to my little cul-de-sac in New Jersey and we were really close. So, one day we were swimming in my pool and dunking under and see how long we could last underwater before one of us ran out of breath. Well, he popped up and I popped up after screaming that I won and he kissed me and I splashed him and ran away. While I don’t count it as a legit kiss, I still think the story’s pretty cute. lol

  87. My first kiss was at the ranch of a friend, during his birthday party. Really a sweet memory.

    Besos desde España ; )

  88. Jaime H. says:

    I have never been kissed yet. And I’m waiting until I get married to. :)

  89. My first kiss was sitting on my bed in my dorm room first year of college – an awkward and awful truth or dare experience. Nothing terrible, just embarrassing!

  90. Christina T says:

    At a New Year’s party thrown by my family when I was 11, later ended up dating the boy in high school :)

  91. My first kiss was in the woods behind my school in Wellesley, MA. I remember thinking, “People actually like doing this?” Fortunately there were better kisses in my future.

  92. I don’t really count it as my first kiss because there was no sparks or warm feelings, there was nothing. But my first kiss was in the bed of a friend’s brother’s room.

  93. My first kiss was on my porch of the house at night in the rain. lol

  94. Kristina Morales says:

    My first kiss was on a bed. I know that sounds bad, but nothing happened (aside from that)! It was after my current boyfriend of 2yrs told me he really liked me, so I just thought “what the hell” and kissed him first!!!

  95. At school, not saying any more then that, lol!

  96. Uh, I’ve NBK. That’s never been kissed. Yeah.

  97. Katherina Barney says:

    LOVE this hunt!! Can’t wait to go back through and enter all the bonus contests!

    I don’t know if you would call what happen me first kiss. It was a childhood romance that went nowhere. We both couldn’t date until we were 16. His mom and mine both are REALLY good friends, and his house wasn’t far from mine so we saw each other every day. He is younger than me by 18 months (which is probably why I now want men older than me); so we became “boyfriend/girlfriend” at the ages of 6 and 4. After our dads retired from the Navy, our families both moved away. So, during a visit his family came down and as all the children were playing (I was 9 and he was 7 going on 8, or had just turned 8) I came into the room and made all the other kids leave. And as he was walking out I said, “Not you.” I shut the door and turned off the lights and gave him a quick peck on the cheek. Turned the lights back off and told him “to tell no body”. Opened the door and as soon as he steps out, my sister asked “what happened” and he TOLD HER “she kissed me!” And of course it got to the parents, all of whom found it hilarious and precede to not let us forget about it to this day, and I’m 21!!

  98. Summer camp!

  99. Megan D. says:

    My first kiss (if you count a peck!) was in a closet with the boy next door. We were both very little & trying not to get caught!

  100. Very first kiss was in the stable, standing in the stall with three 18 hand horses.

  101. I was 13 years old and I went on a group date to the movies and my very first kiss was during the movie, I was actually terrified, I didn’t know what was going on, lol.

  102. My first kiss was with a boy that I had been crushing on forever! I was 15 and it was magical! lol

  103. My first kiss was in a park! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  104. Michelle R says:

    Mine was outside my school. It’s not a happy memory now. xD

  105. Actually…still waiting on that first kiss ;)

  106. Emma Lueckler says:

    My first kiss was at a theme park. My guy friend, who I’m not going to mention in case he miraculously sees this, bribed me with a kiss to go on the Sky Coaster!

    Thanks for the contest and I love your books!

  107. Sarah Green says:

    My first kiss was when my husband proposed and I said yes! Old fashioned, I know….but it was AWESOME all the same.

  108. My first kiss was at the sketchy back part of school, haha!

  109. MaryAnn Inabinet says:

    My first kiss was nothing special in that it was right outside my front door when my date dropped me off at home. It was just a quick peck because my dad was standing there waiting for me to get in the house. Go figure!

  110. Haven’t had my first kiss yet.

  111. Still havn’t gotten one yet. But that’s because Im a ninja and dodge like a pro :)

  112. It was underwater believe it or not. The girl and I had seen it in a movie and wanted to see how it felt.

  113. Samantha Brennan says:

    Haha, my first kiss was at summer camp.

  114. My first kiss was at my high school at my lunch break when I was a freshman. It was outside by one of the big trees that was over by the baseball diamond.

  115. Samantha D says:

    Hmm I think it was on the playground when i was little. I didnt enjoy it! lol i remember thinking whats all the fuss about? That was gross!

  116. My first kiss was in a friends basement while playing a game on the N64!

  117. Jennifer says:

    My first kiss was in the first grade … I kissed a boy on the cheek, and I was so excited about it. My mother was horrified, and remembers the incident to this day (and I am in my mid-40s!) LOL

  118. Is it bad I don’t remember where? I do remember that is was very slobbery. Most likely my first kiss was in front of my door at the end of a date.

  119. 1st kiss? The skating rink, of course!

  120. Paige Schwartz says:

    I don’t usually tell people this, but it was when I was in the 3rd grade and it was my birthday, and for some horrible reason I decided to play Truth or Dare, and my crush was my best friend, I was told to kiss whoever I wanted, and my crush was on top of my bunk bed. I jumped on my bunk bed to try and kiss him, but I missed. I was so embarrassed, but then he leaned down and kissed me. Elementary love doesn’t last long.

  121. My first kiss was actually on my front porch as my boyfriend was leaving! My favorite thing about that first kiss is that I ended up marrying that guy and he is the only one I’ve ever kissed!

  122. Thanks for participating in the hunt and for hosting this additional giveaway. My grabby hands are spastic at the moment because I have ALL THE WANTS! *crosses fingers I win*

    As for my first (full-on) kiss, I was 16 and the guy was 21. I had went by my mom’s gym that she owns to make sure everything was locked up after I left my workplace. This guy and I had known one another forever, we both grew up in the gym, watching our parents working out and keeping each other company. So, we’d always flirted. Well, that night, he walked me out to my car and we talked for a bit. Then he asked for a kiss goodnight, and I told him he could go to hell. He then pointed to his cheek and said, “What about here?” I thought it was harmless enough and leaned in and at the last moment, he turned and caught my lips with his. It was sweet and he was gentle and cute, playing with my hair and stroking my cheek. I ran my fingers across my lips and smiled like a crazy person all the way home.

    (Still ten years later and as I write this, I still get the tummy-flips and flutters. It’s such a cute memory and I have to shake my head at how silly I was back then… and now.)

    Thanks again for the giveaway!

    The Book Hookup: Eat. Breathe. Read!

  123. In the Jeep I drove in high school. It was terribly awkward because I was trying so hard not to giggle. But it can’t have been too bad because I’m still with the same boy 6 years later!

  124. My first kiss was at a dance in D.C. for a leadership conference

  125. I’ve never been kissed! One day hopefully! :)
    This is my second time participating in the YA Scavenger Hunt, it’s always so much fun, thanks for hosting a stop! :)

  126. Kelly Hung says:

    Mine hasn’t happened yet. =)

  127. Cristina Escalante says:

  129. My first kiss was on my parents’ front porch.

  130. 1st YASH, but already super excited!

    NBK :P waiting… about to be a senior… is that sad?

  131. My first kiss was in the woods, a cute peck on the lips, from a boy I had been crushing on all summer.

  132. My first kiss was simply outside the guy’s house. (:

    Thanks for participating and for the giveaway!

  133. Okay, my first kiss was behind a car in a party. It was cool, but then I realized I didn’t like the guy!, lol!

  134. Maribeth Guarino says:

    I’m 17 and I’ve never been kissed. So here’s to hope for the future :P

  135. Saving my first kiss ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  136. Ok, I think the very first time my lips touched a boy’s lips was in 5th grade. The boy I was crushing on lived down the street and my neighbor’s brother and his friend held us both and made us kiss. Not sure if that counts. Otherwise, it was in 7th grade at my first “party” at some girl’s house in her basement.

  137. I haven’t had my first kiss yet….>///<;;

  138. Thanks for the giveaway!! And I’m still waiting for my first kiss :)

  141. Still waiting for the right guy to be my first kiss :)

  142. Yay love YASH!
    My first kiss was in his front garden, hiding in all the bushes – so my sister wouldn’t see us!

  143. Michelle says:

    I haven’t had my first kiss yet. But I’m not the only one, right guys? Right?

  144. Katherine Beaulieu says:

    OMG I love this hunt. I LOVE you. I LOVE YOUR BOOKS. But seriously though, when you made Lucas and Helen believe they were related, I chucked the book across my room. I was like, “I’m done”. But then I caved and tried again… and I was enlightened.
    My first kiss was with a guy I thought I really liked and on my birthday. But he ended up being a really big jerk and telling me he was embarassed to be seen with me. I believe I mentioned him the last time I commented on your blog for the YA Scavenger hunt, answering your question about love at first sight I believe. Anyways thanks for the hunt!:)

  145. Katherine Beaulieu says:

    Sorry adding to previous comment^ First kiss was on my trampoline watching the full moon. Pretty romantic:P

  146. My first kiss was in a restaurant on my first official date when I was 14. It was weird and awkward.
    The hunt is fun :)

  162. My first kiss was at a birthday party – the guy was drunk, I was sober, I didn’t like him and it was super gross! Saliva everywhere! Plus, it caused major problems for both of us when I found out that his best friend (who was also my best friend) actually liked me and didn’t talk to either of us for weeks. BIG MISTAKE!

My first kiss was almost 3 months ago with my first and present boyfriend on the bus to silver dollar city for band <3 I was falling asleep and had my head on his shoulder and the bus went around a corner so I leaned onto him more and I brought my head up slightly and he brought his down and we kissed <3 absolutely perfect <3

    To tell you the truth, I have not had my first kiss yet. And what’s pretty sad is my 17th birthday is August 4th! Gah! But, when I do have my first kiss hopefully it would with a special someone with the person that I know I would want to spend the rest of my life with (only time will tell). And I sincerely hope it would be good!! Thank you so much for the giveaway and for participating in the Scavenger Hunt!

  175. I haven’t had my first kiss yet so I can’t tell you, sorry :(

  176. samantha ramos says:

    I had my first real kiss in highschool at school with my ex-boyfriend who turned out to be pretty weird.

  177. First kiss … outside under the trees

  178. Rachel Chan says:

    I still haven’t been kissed yet, but I’m sure that one day I’ll find that special person and the perfect first kiss :D

  179. In my ex-bf’s car..I think. He died of cancer.

  180. Gabrielle Williams says:

    My first kiss was with in a playground. I was eleven, and so was he. We both did not know what kissing was like. That year was when girls and boys became interested in the opposite sex. All the brave guys and girls would go out on dates (movie date, not exactly hard). My friend and I (neither of one of us actually liking the other), were both shy, but we thought we should try this whole “kissing thing” out. So we hid underneath a playground platform, behind two tires, and kissed for about a second. I don’t really remember it as special, to be honest sometimes I don’t even know if it happened or not. I was so young, and I didn’t know what to expect. I do however remember that the next couples of days were very awkward for my friend and I.

  181. Thank you, for being a part of YASH. My first kiss was at function in a home where my mom worked as a nurse. :)

  182. pretty sure my first kiss was the causality of play kiss chasey when i was six (if that counts?) . anyway thanks for the giveaway, i love the hunt it’s really fun and a great way to get content from my favourite others and new ones.

  183. Haven’t had my first kiss yet. :)

  184. Jess Kemmish says:

    Still waiting for my first ‘proper’ kiss. But thank you for being such a great writter I read dreamless and it was amazing. Love it, love it, love it, and thank you for the giveaway. Your too nice to us all!! :) xx

  185. Emily Abarca says:

    I am still waiting for my first kiss :)

  186. At shool under the magnolia tree

  187. Teresa L says:

    Don’t have one yet :p

  188. I remember it very clearly! :)
    We were laying on my bed watching a Danish comedy show and suddenly he just leaned over and kissed me. We didn’t see much of the show, we were busy kissing. Haha :D It was my first boyfriend and we still talk every now and then :)

  189. To be honest, I haven’t had my first kiss yet (but if you count kissing fictional characters through computer screens, then been there, done that). But there was this time where a guy did kiss me. I was standing by the exit of my school and a classmate of mine rushed up behind me, kissed me on the cheek, and ran. I don’t know if that was sweet, or if the guy was a wimp for running away.

  190. Veronika says:

    I had my first kiss in the kindergarden and it was my best friend :D I had a huge crush on him back than :D

  191. I’ve never been kissed :L still waiting…

  192. My first kiss was actually in the stairwell of the condo building where my family would stay at the beach during the summer.

    So romantic….it was on a dare.

  193. I had my first kiss when I was about 6 or 7 years old, playing spinning the bottle in our basement. :D

  194. Holly Forbes says:

    My first kiss was on my front porch.

  195. My first kiss was outside of my uncles house… I know this sounds weird, but I swear there was no incest going on. lol. Thanks for the giveaway, I can’t wait to see who wins. :D

  196. Myra White says:

    My first kiss happened in one of two places, in the local shopping centre with the guy I happened to be ‘dating’, or at my house with someone I love. I am not sure which is my first because I am not entirely sure if the shopping centre one took place, or whether it was just an extreme fail at an attempted first kiss. I believe I may have stumbled awkwardly before the actual kiss could take place, which is actually fine with me. The second kiss (which I think is the first but I’ll call the second because the other may have been the first but probably not) was quite special. I really liked the guy and there was a electric atmosphere, I was a little scared and nervous, but all in all it was close to a perfect first kiss (if it was a first kiss which I believe it is).
    So let’s just say my first kiss took place in the comfort of my home, with someone I had, and still have, genuine feelings for.

  197. Haha! Outside school. :D

  198. Christina Xu says:

    I haven’t had my first kiss yet, but hopefully someday my prince will come :-)

  199. Elizabeth says:

    Ummm… I haven’t had my first kiss yet…. :\

  200. My first kiss… it was about a week after my 17th birthday. It was very late at night in by bf’s room when we were lying on his bed. We’d just watched The Crow, and the credits were still rolling. I was really really scared and I think I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have :/

  201. Sabine G. says:

    My first kiss… I don’t really remember but I think it was on my doorstep.

  202. My first kiss was in my eighth grade science class while playing truth or dare.

  203. My first kiss…I would say it was in front of my door and we were both so incredibly nervous. I can still remember that I felt so sick from the moment we met until the moment he kissed me. So weird to think about this again. He was super sweet and is still a good friend of mine.

  204. My first real kiss was during the 6th grade in a tunnel, located under the road in a water retention ditch. So romantic. Ditched the guy within two weeks.

  205. Ugh…first kiss was in high school and it was stupid. In front of a locker maybe? I don’t know. All I know is it was sloppy and gross and with SOOOO not the right guy.

  206. Samantha Wright says:

    My first kiss happened when I was 8 months old! My mom worked at the daycare that I went to, so she told me the whole story. I was just sitting on the ground and one of my friends was staring at me and then… he just kisses me on the mouth randomly. Then I started crying. I dont actually remember any of this… so I dont think I can really count it as my first kiss… but its still funny!

  207. My first kiss was with a boy named Nick. We were playing hide and seek! :-)

    Thank you!

  208. Catherine Powell says:

    I’m still waiting for my first kiss.

  209. My first kiss was at. My friends party, he said he had to talk to me and when I turned around he kissed me.

  210. It was at the boy’s house. Scandalous, I know! :)

  211. My first kiss was in a lake. Sweet, but pretty boring, lol.

  212. Giaochau says:

    Since I am quite young (not that young though) I haven’t had what I would consider my first kiss sadly (parents don’t count). Can’t wait for Goddess.

  213. My first kiss was in a field I think. The boy and I just wanted to do it to get our first kiss out of the way. We were just friends.

  214. Krystin Foss says:

    Haha My first kiss was with a boy named James, in a movie theater after seeing Gone In Sixty Seconds!

  215. wow, that was a LONG time ago for me (yes, i am old, but enjoy reading books from YA to adult,)
    Ok, but I do remember, i was 14, and it was one of them “curious” type kisses, with a boy that was my best buddy, I was a tomboy, but we got curious, and it was short peck kind of kiss I would say (on the lips only, lol, love that comment, about where, lol) and we were outside at the ranch of 600 acres with cows and horses that I grew up on, and we were sitting in the isle of the cow corrals, it was super cold (like -5 degrees, i remember his lips being ice cold, as were mine I am sure) (lived in Colorado at that time) and the stars were bright, but the kiss did nothing for me, he was too much like a brother I guess, no fireworks, lol. (at 6,000 feet in the middle of nowhere, you can see the Milky Way so bright there, so clear, and closer too if you think about the elevation, lol)
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  216. Elena Sanchez says:

  218. Victoria says:

  219. Lexie@BookBug says:

    In my parents basement with one of my older sister’s friends. Ewww!!

  220. my first kiss was stolen from me in a bus from a guy i didnt like :(
    i consider my first kiss the kiss i had with my boyfriend 3 years ago while we ran away from our friends (we went to an amusement park) and then sat down on a bench and we were so shy we ended up leaving and still didnt kiss…
    at night, we were going to watch a movie all together but my dad didnt want me to stay there any longer so i was really sad and he tried to comfort me and yeah .. we kissed :D

  221. Roxanne Kade says:

    Hi Josie :)

    Loved the #YASH!! They are always for much fun!

    My first kiss was years ago, on a beach. I was young, on vacation and having the best time ever. The guy’s name was Tommy and 5 seconds after he kissed me I found him kissing my cousin!! I guess I didn’t care because he kissed like a slobbering dog LOL! Thank goodness my second time was amazing :)

  222. I belong to those who haven’t really kissed before. A pity…but there must be a good man out there!

  223. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  224. Holly Remsing says:

    Haha my first kiss was with my first boyfriend after dating for a couple of weeks. We were out on a walk to watch the sunset and it just happened. :D

  225. Caroline B. says:

    Not Yet. Que Sera Sera. :) Thanks for the Giveaway!

  226. To be completely honest I’m fifteen and I’ve never actually had my first kiss. I’ve dreamed of having it under a pretty tree during the fall, but I’m sure that’s just my imaginative heart at work.

  227. Hi Josie!

    Let me just start out with how much I love your books!! I haven’t found a series that I loved so much in a while. So thank you thank you thank you :)

    My first real kiss was with my now fiance Trevor at the house I lived in at the time. It was absolutely wonderful :)

  228. Haven’t yet!

  229. My first kiss was on class in my school and the truth is I don’t really want to remember it.
    Thank you for the giveaway and hunt!

  230. Rozy Chavez says:

    Great giveaway! My first kiss was in 6th grade behind the elementary school :)

  231. Sweet almost 15 and never been kissed :P

  232. Maggie R. says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! I look forward to reading your work.

  233. I had my first kiss when I was on holiday in Turkey when I was 15 years old.

  234. Josie (like you!) says:

    My first kiss was in a park at the water’s edge in San Diego. It was late at night in the middle of a California winter (which is really just the equivalent of Spring everywhere else) and really cold. It was also a really calm night, and we were at the edge of a park where we could see the Navy ships across the water from us. There were only a few lights on that side, but they reflected off the water perfectly, like those pictures of mountains where it seems like the world has folded over on itself. I liked the boy I was with, but my first love didn’t come until much later.

  235. Still haven’t had mine!
    Thanks so much! I still need to read your books! But I love all things Greek myth so it looks fab.

  236. My first kiss wasn’t all that noteworthy, sadly. I had just got done playing soccer and I was sitting there with my boyfriend, covered in sweat and grime, and he just leaned over and kissed me. It was unexpected, and my face burst into flames.

    Anyways, thanks for the giveaway!!

  237. Ash Frame says:

    I had my first kiss…in the future. Yup, I am in fact a time traveler, and I have had my first kiss…just not yet.

  238. I’ve never been kissed :)

  239. My first kiss was in the backroom of my first job. He happened to be one of my co-workers. :P

  240. “My first kiss went a little like this…” joking :P the question just made the song pop up. Uhm… my first kiss was… I don’t remember :o I think it was under a cherry blossom tree…

    Thanks for the great giveaway, I’d love a copy of the books. I started them but (sadly) couldn’t finish it because of the technical difficulties with my iPod.

  241. McKenzie says:

    I had my first kiss on a bus. How embarrassing!

  242. I had my first kiss on my front porch!

  243. Cassandra B. says:

    Still waiting on my first kiss :)

  244. alicia marie says:

    My first kiss was in my car :P

  245. Technically speaking, probably in the hospital when I was born, for I’m sure my parents kissed me. :) But romantically speaking, I’m saving my first for a bit longer.

  246. Okay, so my first kiss was on a bed…however I SWEAR nothing else happened!!!

  247. Rachel Green says:

    Still haven’t had a first kiss :(

  248. Julie Tyler says:

    I had my first kiss was in my friends backyard on the last day of 8th grade.

  250. though, sadly, i have yet to have my first kiss, when it happens i hope its somewhere (at least kind of) romantic at like a park or something. thanks for the giveaway, can’t wait to read your books!

  258. Joanna W. says:

    The location was not the most beautiful or imaginative of locations, but my first kiss happened of the school bus ride home. It was from the bus driver’s son, no doubt. :P

  259. My first kiss was at a skating rink ….

  260. Margie M. says:

    Well, my first kiss was in my parents’ bedroom, with my little sister, in front of the Disney Bambi !! Yeah, I know… Not very cool !

  263. My first kiss…was really sweet…We were at the lake and it was sunset…just wish I would have realized what a loser the guy was sooner than later. The kiss was great though :)

  264. Never had my first kiss ever. Seriously and honestly. :)

  265. Steph Trujillo says:

    Where did you have your very first kiss?
    I had mine that wasn’t officially my first but it was my first with the guy I plan to be with for a long time :), we were under the stars at a a park getting ready to say “goodbye and goodnight” (this was before he gave me a chance at a relationship with him) and then as we hugged he leaned in and as did it and we were both kind of shocked at what just happened and then we parted ways for the night :)

  266. Jessica C. says:

    My first kiss was when I was nine in my treehouse with my next door neighbor!!

  267. In an old VW bus! LOL

  268. Micaela Swentik says:

    Thanks for the extra little giveaway! My first kiss hmm…well the first kiss I had with my now husband was while watching “Who wants to be a Millionaire”. I was on the Million $ question and the question was which of the following is a Pokemon…The answer was JigglyPuff! I was so excited that knew the answer “I” kissed him! Silly I know but being 15 with raging hormones and dieing to break that tension I just did it! ;0) It paid off we have been together ever since! 12 years and counting!

  269. Angela L. says:

  273. My first kiss…behind a big oak tree in my backyard with my neighbor whom I had a huge crush on!!

  274. Michelle Greer says:

    My first kiss was on my driveway. I had just home from a date, and I was rushing inside because it was pouring down rain. My date grabbed my arm, turned me around, and kissed me. Then he told me: “I just couldn’t wait any longer”. It was perfect.

  275. My first kiss was up in the mountains – where you can park and look out across the city, on what could be called my first date with this guy (since we were friends before then). It was pretty nice.
    I would say it was in second grade because I used to chase this boy and try to kiss him but I don’t think I’d ever kissed more than his hands or cheeks. :D Good times.

  276. rachael m says:

    Thanks for the extra givaway Josie! My first kiss, honestly i’ve not had it yet :(

  279. Ruby Replogle says:

    My first kiss was when I was 16 and I was helping my boyfreind put his bike away in the bike shed behind his house. He walked out first so when I followed I closed the shed behind me. When I turned around he just kissed me, completely took me by surprise so I apparently made a little squeel.

  298. I’m really excited about the Scavenger Hunt! I’m just getting started :)

  305. I haven’t had my first kiss yet, but I hope it’s some place special with someone I like!(:
