review: kiss cam by kiara london
In Kiss Cam, teen author Kiara London asks, what's a little harmless kissing between friends?
Juniper, Jasper, and Lenny have been friends forever and co-own a vlog channel called WereVloggingHere. Their fans are huge "shippers" who believe that Juniper and Jasper are perfect for each other, and, despite warnings from friends and family, a simple Truth-or-Dare inspired kiss soon spirals out of control into a whole new world of making out and surprise kisses.
Juniper and Jasper's relationship begins to shift. But as fan requests for different "Kiss Cam" segments keep pouring in, Juniper puts her worries aside and convinces herself that it doesn't mean anything. After all, it's just kissing… right?

Cute friends to more romance but it drags out for too long and lags in spots.
This was one of the first YA's I've read that made me feel too old to read. We're living in the age of vlogging and oversharing our lives and that just isn't something I can relate to.
However, teens will probably relate to Juniper, Jasper, and Lenny's crazy on camera antics to get more likes and the fandom *shipping* them in various couple forms.
