Yvalia Dimancís life seemed to take a new direction after she found a best friend who was respectful, tender, and caring. A friend she found as the first trustworthy person on earth that she could reveal a shocking secret to about her brother, who raped and abused her on different occasions when she was only seven years old. Her friendship with Evenson Dufour has been scrutinized by many, including her family members, because Yvalia and Evenson were too close to each other. Their moral values helped them to keep their friendship clean from impudicity. On a rare occasion, they shared a kiss, but that was the first and last kiss.

Evenson Dufour The First and Last Kiss

For many of my teenage years, I never thought about whether I was going to be a real respectful friend for a girl. Maybe more honestly, I didn’t think I could be friend with a girl without sexual implication. As first a child and then a young man, I admired friendship when I saw others or heard them talk about how wonderful a good friendship can be or read about how friendship with the opposite sex can be enjoyable and joyful. Don’t get me wrong, this didn’t mean that I didn’t have friends at all. But, true friendship with a girl like the one I was going to develop with Yvalia was like a new world for me. These five bold font words in the preceding sentence are big words. Yes, they’re Powerful, Intimidating, and Splendid. These are words for heroes, for those who brave the impossible, who can control the part of their bodies below the belly button, and make the real difference between friendship and relationship with the opposite sex.
Armed with my enthusiasm and good intention as a self-described “protector,” I set out to write The First and Last Kiss; this book talks about how people of opposite sexes can benefit from a true friendship, but this book also explains the story of a seven-year-old girl abused by her oldest brother. I began the story with the circumstance that led to my wonderful friendship with Yvalia.
Each time I talked to Yvalia, the fiery, disgusting feeling against Yve, Yvalia’s brother, who was the rapist or abuser, got my frustration at the highest level. Even today, I am still asking how a brother has the guts to have sex with his own little sister no matter how old he is. And what pushes a brother to take the virginity of his own sister.
Listening to Yvalia, I felt a rush of empowered dignity, true friendship, and profound respect. This is the person that I became in order to help my unforgettable friendship with Yvalia. Internally and externally, I triumphed with my friendship with her. Yes, I was able to support her, give her good advice, study with her, go so boldly, and take a firm stand so bravely. Then, I avoided committing unwanted mistakes that could jeopardize my friendship with her.
After you have wisely purchased this book and read it, you have my permission to use it as the best example to prove that people from opposite sexes can be friends without having sexual implication. You are also free to undoubtedly unveil your criticisms about it. I think your criticisms will be like flavors making this book one of the best of its kind because my most significant, esteemed, and brave commentator isn’t somebody else but you, for you spent your money to buy this book.
I considered you as a new agent who will say no to the sexual abuses against kids. Everything in this book is real, and you must be prepared to laugh, cry, and think about this reality. You can no longer be confused about friendship and sexual relationships. You also won’t condemn me for the way the first kiss happened—you won’t judge me bad because I let the first kiss be the last based on the circumstance of the time. Whether you can admit this, the end of this wonderful book will reveal to you the natural side of a wonderful friendship.
I am a writer, not a psychologist. My insights come primarily from my own experiences and from experiences of other friends that I grew up with.
In light of this, I want to make it clear that this book is not meant to be a manual that teaches you how you should develop your friendship with anyone.
I believe everyone probably has something good to learn from their experiences.


Excerpt

Today, I am not sure why I felt compelled to write down this story in the first place, so the sentiment of motivation that stimulates me to tell this story is very strong for some reason that I now still canít explain. I feel at this moment I must do my best to tell it if for no other reason than to finally say no to abuses against young children.
This story is, above all, a story about a wonderful friendship, and it has plenty of emotional aspects, but it is also rich with good advice. At the same time, it is a story of a young girl who has been sexually abused by her own brother.
This is a powerful tale of true friendship.
I want to warn you that this story is charming and moving, so donít miss a sentence from each chapter because this book is going to switch on a sleeping light in you. I am more than convinced that you will love it. This book is very easy to read, but it is an extraordinary book, for it is touching. I am sure you wonít soon forget it.

The most wonderful story
Posted December 11, 2010, 10:48 PM EST: This is the best book of the history of friendship that I have ever read. I liked the story so much! I finished reading it today. I got it from another store, but I preferred to write the review on Barnes and Noble because I bought Evenson's book before on this great store. It took me one day to read it, and I just love the way that Evenson Dufour wrote the book! It's extremely excellent, and my favorite part is when Evenson and Yvalia share the kiss. Wow! This story is very touching. ~Kersley

Great and strongly recommended to everyone
Posted December 12, 2010, 11:37 AM EST: "The First and Last Kiss" contains the full easiest text and chapters that make it the best print true story book in the market. I strongly recommended Barnes and Noble to have a high quantity of this book on their shelves because they will make millions with this book. This author definitely has one of the best writing styles. It is as if he sits with you having a profound conversation with you individually as his reader. This story is stocked in my mind and will remain there for the rest of my life. I am convinced the NY Times will pick up this book.

Definitely recommended to every woman
Posted December 12, 2010, 12:02 PM EST: Before you ask me, no, I'm not talking about the wonderful chapters from this book because you need to enjoy this natural story on your own, but this book "The First and Last Kiss" is superb. I'm talking about the original and the classic The author of The First and Kiss is brilliant.
