HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT. Sylvie is sure Carl loves her, so why hasn’t he kissed her?
Sylvie and Carl have always been best friends, and Sylvie’s always dreamed that they’d get married someday. But when she begins to realize that Carl may be more interested in boys than girls, Sylvie struggles to hold on to the pieces of her shattered dreams. With her trademark blend of honesty,
sensitivity, and humor, bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson delivers a novel for teens about first love, first heartbreak, and the power of a kiss.
“Believable…rich characterization…This will have particular resonance for those who have had their own big childhood certainties about their future give way in the face of life transitions.” -- BCCB
“Wilson, author of more than 100 books and a former British Children’s Laureate, is a thoroughgoing professional and her latest book is smoothly written and well plotted…” -- Booklist
