Making Out is a series of young adult novels by authors K. A. Applegate and Michael Grant.[1] The series was formerly known as "Boyfriends/Girlfriends" and the first eight books were republished in 2015 as The Islanders.[2] The books were based on the lives of teenagers living on an island called Chatham Island off the coast of Maine. The main characters were Zoey Passmore and her brother Benjamin, Claire Geiger and her sister Nina, Jake McRoyan, Lucas Cabral, and Aisha Gray. Later in the series, new characters were introduced.

The books dealt with several difficult topics (such as the death of a parent, molestation, divorce, disability, drugs, and alcohol) and followed the effect of these issues on the character's lives.

The books followed the group of teenagers from their senior year in high school to life in college.
