Tess Sharpe is off to a strong start in the New Year with the release of her latest YA novel, 6 Times We Almost Kissed (And One Time We Did). She already has a few hits under her belt, including All The Girls I’ve Been, which is being adapted into a feature-length film starring Millie Bobby Brown. In line with her previous works, 6 Times We Almost Kissed is led by dynamic queer female protagonists and tackles mature themes entwined with romance.

6 Times We Almost Kissed has a lot to unpack. On the surface, it is a fanfic romance tale of two girls with high romantic tension that makes readers wait for the elusive kiss. Under the surface, it is a very emotional, heartfelt, and relatable tale of two teens who were forced into adult roles at a young age. I had the opportunity to discuss 6 Times We Almost Kissed with Sharpe, via email, and she opened up about its fanfic premise, structure, and themes.
