Why is it that the most boring sounding books are always the most interesting? This is one of Pike’s more batshit crazy novels and I loved it. Like, holy shit, that escalated quickly. Some of the dialogue was so funny that I laughed out loud. I am LIVING for Jane calling Alice a dumb broad. ( )

This one's much different than Pike's other works. His black humor shows through as always, even stronger, particularly with one of the more bizarre villain motivations I've read. It's an interesting enough story - a girl gets humiliated at school when some kids pass around pages of her diary, and then takes revenge by faking her death on a cruise - and is told mainly through the eyes of Jane to a police captain after people really do die in her rescue. Pace wise, the story moves swiftly (it's a shorter book for him, a mere 152 pages), with enough bumps and oomphs to keep the scenes speeding along. It's easy when reading this study to remember the angst of high school days, trials, and tribulations

As always Pike writes with a creative pen, this time a little less aptly in some parts, but hey - maybe I just think that because I didn't care much for the book. I mentioned the villains motivation being bizarre, and while it may have been meant as a huge joke, I didn't find it humorous. It was more stupid to me than anything else. I know Pike has much better stuff in his imagination, I've seen it. The characters didn't draw me as much as usual, either, instead just existing as plot pieces.

However, there were some scenes that stand out. The boat scene was an amusing mishap, and the house scene with her friend was nail-biting. Suspense is always done well in his books, whether I enjoy them or not. I would never call this a full-fledged mystery (as again the motive makes no sense), but the curiosity was there too to keep me reading along. Overall I'd say to stay away from this one unless you're already a fan, and start with his other works instead. ( )

Did I really have such horrible taste in books back in my teen years? I’ve attempted to reread three Christopher Pike books and finished only two. One of them was pretty darn good, the other was so awful that I couldn’t finish it, and then there is this one. Gimme a Kiss falls somewhere in between the other two. I was able to finish reading it, but just barely.

It is never a good sign when you start getting characters mixed up and that is what happened to me. Which one is Jane again? Oh she is the protagonist…right! Jane has a fake diary where she makes up steamy stories about her boyfriend (uh crap forgot his name now too). Anyone who writes this kind of diary and leaves is sitting around is asking my trouble in my opinion. The reason that she left her diary sitting open on her desk did not win cool points with me. Jane spots a cat outside trying to eat her pet bunny so she runs outside and throws a rock at the poor kittehs head! GRRRRR!!! At this point in the story I was ready to jump into the book and beat Jane to a bloody pulp. You never ever mess with the cat people…ok?

So where was I? Oh yes, Jane attacks a poor innocent kitteh and her friends Sharon and forgothername come over and read her diary. The next day the entire school is walking around with a page of poor Jane’s diary. Jane is so embarrassed that naturally she feels she only has one option, to fake her death and blame on the people who caused this humiliation to occur. Jane tells her awesome friend Sharon about her plans. Ok so I’m only saying that her friend is awesome because her name is Sharon but , come on people everyone knows Sharon’s are great! Jane is going on a boat trip with some friends and before they leave she hid some scuba equipment underneath the boat. Once they are a mile or so out, Jane picks a fight with some idiots and falls overboard. After faking her death Jane hides out in a cabin in the woods. Her plans to hide out and reveal that she is in fact alive in a few days are thwarted when someone comes to the cabin and tries to kill her! I should also mention that Jane discovers while watching the news that her boyfriend died during her rescue attempt. He was such a jerk and a boring character that I almost forgot to mention this part of the story.

Jane makes it out of the cabin alive after leaving poor Sharon to die. It is at this point in the story that Jane figures out who tried killed her boyfriend and attempted to end her life as well. It turns out it was forgothername all along! OH the scandal! Jane’s friend used to date her boyfriend and he gave her herpes. *gasp! This explains everything now! STDS make teens kill! Sex before marriage is bad! Mmmmmk? ( )
