The young adult novel, The Kissing Booth, by Beth Reekles was one of the earliest hits of the Wattpad platform. The book skyrocketed on the site, and led Reekles to a contract with Random House. The story added humor, betrayal and bad boy lust all into one.
So, it really isn’t a surprise that the story was picked up by Netflix and adapted for the screen.
Reekles has kept us up to date with the progress of the film, and on April 14 she revealed that the film will hit our screens on Netflix on May 11.
Less than 1 month until we see Rochelle ‘Elle’ and Noah come to life right before our eyes.
For those who may not be familiar with their story, here is a little info:
