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?
For those who might wonder about content based on the title –
From Kelly: The book has a great overall message and promotes good strong moral values. For a book all about sex, there’s not anything even close to a sex scene in it, but because of the nature of the topic there is a lot of innuendo/sexual humor and some name calling.
I read V is for Virgin a month ago and it’s a book I still think about. Kelly created some unforgettable characters and very memorable scenes.
I think this book has a much needed message – it’s ok to wait to have sex. Despite the fact that it seems that everyone around Val believes and acts differently she sticks to her values. Amazingly Kelly manages to tell the story without coming across preachy or putting down those who do choose a different path.
I loved the friction between Val & Kyle. So fun to read and what a great ending to the story!
While I wouldn’t hand this to my 12 year old yet I will let her read it in a few years.
Rating: 4.5 Stars – Highly Recommend
Content: I agree with what Kelly said – For a book all about sex, there’s not anything even close to a sex scene in it, but because of the nature of the topic there is a lot of innuendo/sexual humor and some name calling.
