Author's Description:
Four Little Words Written in Lipstick...
mean Emily must say goodbye to everything she knows. Emily Carson has always been a good girl. So when she throws a party the night her parents leave for vacation, she's sure she'll get busted. What Emily doesn't know is that her parents will never return.

Review: Lipstick Apology was a roll with the punches kind of book. Readers follow a very emotional rollercoaster of loss, humor, and love in this new age story. While the story was entertaining, it seemed to lack a direct plot. The story vaguely strayed in the first half leaving me confused about the path the book was supposed to be leading. This was my first read by Jennifer Jabaley and I felt that she was still a little distant from her characters. This story was packed with emotion, but I failed to feel that severity of this from the writing. I enjoyed this book, but I do not see as a book that I would give a return visit.
