Naomi and Ely are best friends. Naomi loves and is in love with Ely, and Ely loves Naomi, but prefers to be in love with boys. So together, they create the 'No Kiss List' - a list of people neither of them are allowed to kiss. It was all working fine until that incident with Bruce.A witty, hip and entertaining exploration of love, friendship and misunderstanding.
Naomi (funny and gorgeous) and Ely (funny, gorgeous and gay) live in the same apartment block. They've been soul mates since forever, sharing clothes, music, in-jokes, adventures. they even have a 'no-kiss' list of people who are absolutely off-limits for kissing (as an insurance policy against a Naomi and Ely breakup). But what if they don't love each other in quite the same way, or play by the same rules? When Ely kisses Naomi's current boyfriend, the fault lines in their relationship begin to crack.
A quirky New York story of friendship, love and all life's funny complications.
