Last Kiss-Marilyn Smith-Porter

One of my favorite bands is Pearl Jam. When they released their version of the Last Kiss in 1999 (wow was it that long ago) I purchased the “No Boundaries, A Benefit for the Kosovo Refugees” CD for that song alone.

Marilyn Smith-Porter (a new author for me) has written her fictitious version of events leading up to and ending a few years after the lyrics in Last Kiss. This is a wonderful story with all the anguish of lost love and lost innocence.

I was unsure at first how anyone could carry a complete story from the premise of the song, but the author was able to weave in memories, flashbacks and a really great ending into the book. Georgie, Joey, Sharon, and Paula were well written characters.
