Jo has just moved to America with her mum. She's always been a fairly average girl - not a nerd but certainly never one of the popular kids. But on her first day in her new school, she seems to be adopted by the It girls - and is invited to one of their parties. There, she meets Jake Matthews, officially the hottest boy in school, and when they begin to play the kissing-in-the-closet game, Seven Minutes in Heaven, amazingly Jake picks Jo join him in the closet! She can't believe her luck. But the reality of being kissed and groped by Jake is not quite as great as the fantasy... Jo has a choice to make: should she carry on, kiss Jake and secure her position in the It crowd - or should she tell him where to get off and risk relegation back to the land of the ordinary . . . ?

At this moment - Jo splits. She's Josie the Cool - girlfriend of Jake, member of the It crowd. She's also Jo the Nerd - rejected by the It crowd, single . . .

Will her two halves ever come back together again? Is Jake the guy she's meant to be with or could some of the other people she meets along her journey - Rachel the scary goth, David the misfit or Albie the rocker - be the answer?

A fabulously inventive, heartwarming and funny take on the Sliding Doors idea, for teen readers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A teen chick lit novel, but one written with intelligence, humour and subtlety . . . The story is slick, funny and a really good read for anyone feeling the peer pressure * The School Librarian *
It's rare to find a book like this - that has a brand new, never told before story, brilliant writing, lots of very realistic scenarios and some hilarious but usually overlooked characters. It really is the ultimate in teen fiction -- Zoe Page * The Bookbag *
Split by a Kiss has a strong narrative voice and punchy contemporary dialogue. The moral of this novel is that it's important to speak your true voice. And at the beginning of what will undoubtedly be a long career as a children's author, Plaja has done just that -- Vanessa Curtis * Glasgow Herald *
Cute, sweet, and funny read. Fans of Louise Rennison will love it, and should be sure to put it on their Christmas wish lists! * Meg Cabot *
A fast paced and touching story about teenage identities * Lovereading.co.uk *
