Kiss, Kiss Bark

by Kim Williams-Justesen

Poor Mattie’s summer is not going as planned.  She has been constantly stuck babysitting her annoying little brother, who insists on being treated like a dog.  Now, she is finally getting the attention of her best friend Livvy’s older brother, Nate, but Livvy is not exactly thrilled.  How does Mattie get her parents to let her have a life?  Shouldn’t Livvy be happy for her?  Will she have to choose between her best friend and her boyfriend, and who should it be?  A very real crisis will force Mattie to find the answers in this funny, but very real look at some common dilemmas.
