Upcoming Release: The Lighter Side of Life and Death

The Lighter Side of Life and Death
By: C.K. Kelly Martin

Pub date: May 25th, 2010

Sixteen-year-old Mason Rice is having the night of his life. He's just delivered an incredible performance in the school play, basked in celebratory afterglow vibes at the party of the year, and lost his virginity to one of his best friends—the gorgeous but previously unobtainable Kat Medina. His dreams are coming true, and the future looks golden.

Unfortunately, Kat sees things very differently. Crossing the friendship line was a big mistake, and all she wants is to forget it and move on, even if that means forgetting Mason altogether. What's a guy to do? Well, if you're Mason, you hang your hopes on the first attractive twenty-three-year-old you cross paths with. At first Mason wonders if he's imagining the chemistry . . . until Colette invites him over to her apartment. Suddenly Mason's living in a whole new world.

summary from goodreads.com

I stmbled across this one yesterday thanks to Amy over at Addicted To Books.

I loved C.K. Kelly Martin's first novel I Know It's Over and I'm sure I'll really enjoy this one as well. I'm pretty certain, given the summary, that this book is going to be told through a male perspective which if you're a regular reader of my blog, you know I really love. Also, the cover is so pretty, the image telling a story that I can't wait to discover.


  1. This one does sound good!! I like books told from the male perspective. There aren't enough books like that out there!

  2. Ohh, looks good! I love I Know It's Over as well and need to start on One Lonely Degree. >< Looking forward to this one!

  3. AHHH!!!! Can't even describe how much I want to read this. Her first book is one of the few that can get to me on an emotional level.

  4. This book sounds good!
