About V is for Virgin:
When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy.
As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.
How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?
This is a great book for older teens to read for a strong example of overcoming peer pressure and standing by your morals. I love Val’s relationships, and found them true to life in their differences from each other. From boyfriends, friends, and classmates. The only thing that I felt this book was lacking was a complete separation of the parents. I realize that teens are mostly interested in the opinions and thoughts of their friends, but it seemed like the parents played no role in her decision making on some pretty major life changing choices.
Overall this is a good book, there is no bad language or inappropriate scenes, but the topic is THE topic, including slang words and innuendo, I would recommend with caution.
