About the Book

Whisper of a Kiss is one of the most powerful love stories ever written, sharing the journey of a quiet, marginalized high school student from a life of mediocrity to the summit of unimagined achievement all made possible by the impact of a single person on his life. The principles he learns from a devoted single mother and his mentor manifest in a dynamic, moving understanding of love brought thundering to the surface by the presence of a girl who is “the one.” The story, based on true life events, addresses many important issues relative to parenting, mentoring, and educating. But most of all, the story is unforgettable.
