Reviews

"A woman's life recalled through kisses: the blissful, the unwelcome, and those she longed for that never came."--People Magazine

"Moving....what makes this book so easy to love is its offbeat execution...her breezy prose has a natural, effortless quality that is surely the result of great care."--Newest.net

"Small moments and large tragedies are handled with unselfconscious delicacy and humor in this sweet read."--Library Journal's Booksmack

"Sternbach...is an impressive stylist and a candid guide through her life. Although the reality of kissing serves as the connecting thread, each essay is grounded in one of a wide variety of complementary topics, such as the first love as an adolescent, best friends, parents, sisters, birthdays, tennis, summer camp, air travel, marriage, divorce, cancer, rape and death--among others. Sternbach has carefully considered how to make a life story interesting through unusual yet approachable formatting, and she throws humor, sarcasm and self-deprecation into the mix....A memorable, laugh-out-loud, cry-out-loud essay collection for both genders and all ages."--Kirkus Reviews

"Excellent memoir, 'Reading Lips, ' reveals a life, one kiss at a time"--Good Times, Santa Cruz

"Tells of the kisses that shaped her life and uses them to tell of her search to get life right in a sharp, funny memoir, ideal for other women seeking the same thing."--bookviews.com

"Witty, insightful, and full of promise. Sternbach goes through her own tragedies and has seen fit to share them with us in a way that makes life seem like an adventure; something to be taken advantage of and embraced. This book is recommended for women, but men could learn a thing or two as well."--Tulsa Books Examiner
