What if your lip gloss told the truth. Would you want it to?
Loaded questions. Loaded questions indeed.
The lip gloss I'm wearing today would tell me that I really need more than lip gloss in order to make myself presentable. It would tell me to not eat this Valentine's Day fudge. It would tell me to take the time to flat iron my hair--it's worth it. It would tell me that I'm doing alright as a momma and to not be so hard on myself (or my family) because perfection is unattainable.
My lip gloss when I was a younger girl, high school young, would have totally different truths to tell me. Some would be helpful--I can see that now as an adult. Some would hurt to hear, of course. The teen years are loaded with these emotions.
In Kiss and Tell, a novella by Sandy Green, Jenna is a contemporary teen who encounters Verity, a former ancient water spirit paying penance as Jenna's truth-telling lip gloss. And Verity now has a mission: To save Jenna from deadly harm and to find redemption and peace in the present day.
Author of Kiss and Tell, Sandy Green is a choreographer and former ballet dancer, chapbook author and YA/MG author, whose work has appeared in such places as Bitter Oleander, Chicken Soup for the Child's Soul, Highlights for Children, and U.S. 1 Worksheets. She has a BFA in dance from Florida State University and currently leads the liturgical dancers at her church in Virginia where she lives with her husband and two children.
Kiss and Tell and Sandy Green can be found in the following arenas. Magical, truthful lip gloss can only be found in Kiss and Tell. Get it today!
So, I'm interested: What would your lip gloss tell you TODAY?
