A girl who''s always been in the shadows finds herself pursued by the unbelievably attractive new boy at school, who may or may not be the death of her. Another girl grows up mute because of a curse placed on her by a vindictive spirit, and later must decide whether to utter her first words to the boy she loves and risk killing everyone who hears her if the curse is real. And a third girl discovers that the real reason for her transient life with her mother has to do with belonging ? literally belonging ? to another world entirely, full of dreaded creatures who can transform into animals, and whose queen keeps little girls as personal pets until they grow to childbearing age.From a writer of unparalleled imagination and emotional insight, three stories about the deliciousness of wanting and waiting for that moment when lips touch.

From the Publisher
Three stories about the magic and daring and danger that can happen with a kiss make up LIPS TOUCH. "Goblin Fruit" concerns the modern-day challenges a goblin faces when trying to charm a girl into selling her soul, in the form of the sassy Kizzy feeling intrigued and confused by the hot new guy at school, while "Spicy Little Curses" involves the wonderfully romantic plot of a girl whose voice will kill yearning to tell her beloved how she feels. In the final story, "Hatchling," Esme discovers her life is not what it seems when her left eye changes from familiar brown to a new blue shortly before her 14th birthday.
