Read On - Kiss of Death by Bali Rai
I drop my bag of chips and run. I can hear them, shouting after me. Telling me to stop. Four of them - all older than me, all of them angry.
Are you wondering who they are, the people chasing me? Easy. They're my girlfriend's brothers ...
Joey only wanted a kiss. He'd been seeing Ria - the fittest girl in year ten - for four months, seeing her in secret because her family wouldn't approve.
When someone sees them together, Joey knows he's in trouble. Big trouble. Soon, a simple trip to the chippy turns into a life and death chase. And that kiss, that one, little peck, might turn out to be the kiss that kills him...
