Purchase Kissing Boys, Just For The Thrill
Kissing Boys, Just For The Thrill is the fourth major poetry collection, from Jennifer Juan. An exploration of female trouble. From romance to heartbreak, poverty to unrelenting joy, war, lust, racism, transmisogyny, and everywhere in between. We’ve all got problems, and Jennifer has a lot to say about many of them. Breaking down the expectations and stereotypes of what a woman’s life can and should be, Juan presents women of every aspect, in every situation, in a powerful and raw collection of poems.
“Jennifer Juan, like her name in a British setting, seems out of place and yet very much in tune with the young times she depicts. The collection expresses great vulnerability, rawness and hurt, and reminded me, in its open embrace of the extremely personal and painful, of Sylvia Plath’s poems which seem like desperate operations.” – Jonathan Finch, Author
“Truly fantastic work from a enchanting author, I can only wait with bated breath for what she has in store for us next.” – Ben Mumberson, Author
“This very talented writer engages the reader with verses of truth and devastating irony that lurk in our everyday lives” – kelemchi.co.uk
“Thank you Jennifer, this is beautiful. Made me tear up.” – Trace Lysette, Star of Amazon’s Transparent
“I guess the reality of life is right here in her poems, she’s so current and relative to many people of all ages, but I especially think she is so current with the society we live in today. I look forward to reading more materials from her.” – Vicky Winley, Blogger and Model.
“There’s a poem toward the beginning of the collection titled The Game that has stuck with me since I first read it – I can’t get it out of my head. Of course, poetry is always up for some interpretation by the reader, but this stirred up feelings and memories I’d long since repressed. It’s a brutal, jolting piece that deftly handles a topic that many would shy away from sharing. As soon as I read this piece, I knew I was in love with Juan’s way with words.” – Bethany Jane, Blogger.
