Kirkus Best Book of 2022

★ “Khorram does a terrific job of taking readers inside the world of pop music, especially showing the stress involved in celebrity…[he] handles these dramatic complexities like a master, and readers will be grateful for his skill.” –Booklist, starred review

★“This is a love letter to boy bands…[Adib Khorram] effectively encapsulates the ecosystem of celebrity and fandom—and cultivates a strong, contemporary social message…An absolute bop; Khorram’s best yet.” –Kirkus, starred review 

★ “Khorram deftly makes the story work, calling on readers to empathize with Hunter’s pride and embarrassment, questions about how he should look and be, and maybe even his belated realization that the band’s other members also receive public scrutiny” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Readers looking to celebrate their boy-band fandom or add to their boy-meets-boy reading list will revel in everything this novel has to offer… this is a thought-provoking pleasure read that hits all the right notes.” –BCCB, starred review

“Adib has crafted a sparkling, modern fairytale effortlessly woven with yearning, social justice, and sweet but complex friendships bursting with lovely little rays of hope.” —David Yoon, New York Times bestselling author of Frankly in Love and Super Fake Love Song

“Adib Khorram’s Kiss & Tell is a hyperpop blast of queerness that examines the perils of finding your identity under the spotlight of fame, and celebrates the transformative power of the artistic process. I loved it.” —Abdi Nazemian, author of Stonewall Honor book Like a Love Story

Perfectly nuanced and deeply relevant, Kiss & Tell is a harmonic blend of humor, romance, and unforgettable voice. An anthemic reminder that queer teens are allowed to exist as themselves, on their own terms. This book deserves a standing ovation.”—Julian Winters, award-winning author of Running with Lions

“For queer readers of every age who’ve been made to feel like nothing but a dirty word, Kiss & Tell is a brilliant takedown of exploitations of queerness and the policing of teens, filled with heartache, hilarity, friends-for-life, and stadium-sized queer joy.”—Tessa Gratton, author of Strange Grace

“A pitch-perfect novel about messy loves, big heartbreaks, and defining queerness on your own terms. This one seals it: Adib Khorram couldn’t write a book I wouldn’t love.” —Leah Johnson, bestselling and Stonewall Honor winning author of You Should See Me in a Crown and Rise to the Sun
