"The Holloway Girls is about the power of a kiss—and the power of forgiveness, of siblings, of friendship, and, above all, of love. All wrapped up in a curse and woven through with magic. A page-turner that will charm you!" —Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author

When your kiss is good luck, the wrong kiss could change everything...

During the kissing season, one kiss from Remy or her older sister Maggie will give the boy—or girl—good luck. Or so it has been for all the Holloway girls before. But this year, Remy's first season, she doesn't follow the rules, dooming the boy she kisses to bad luck that almost kills him and leaving Remy with a cursed kissing season.

Now Remy is adamant about keeping her lips to herself. But the new boy in town is making it hard to keep her promise. Especially because he seems to really want to get to know her, and isn't just using her for the Holloway luck. But before she can even think about kissing someone else, she'll have to find a way to fix the curse, or else her family's legacy will be tainted forever.
