Kandler's First Kiss
In a society full of peer pressure and lost innocence among youth, Kandler's First Kiss revisits the wholesomeness of growing up while being labeled as socially, physically or spiritually different. Author K.O. Lofton cleverly uses satire, biblical analogies and life principles to illustrate a moral that is subtle, yet conveys a concrete and positive message about self-identity and faith.
Amid a gamut of peaks and valleys, including a life-changing tragedy, Kandler proves you're never too young to believe, suffer, learn life lessons, or stand up for what’s right. Additionally, his faith is tested and revealed in situations familiar to pubesence. His journey is accompanied by the object of his affection, Seba, who emulates the true meaning of loyalty and friendship.
An alternative to extraordinary teen characters, the story’s common protagonist serves as a role model for the everyday young Christian. Penned with appropriate language, Kandler’s First Kiss is a great read for secular and parochial school audiences, youth book clubs, and even adults.
