Eva, Debbie, Kai and Mandy are best friends. They're also all looking for an escape route from high school - an escape none of them can manage on their own. Which is where Mrs Treemont's scholarship fund comes in...but the girls soon discover that being awarded it depends on more than high grades - they've also got to prove they're still virgins. And, in the competition to win the scholarship, the girls are soon playing dirty...Is the award worth more than their friendship?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 27 May 2006
i originally got this book from the library to take on holiday, i couldn't put it down and when i got back i went out and bought it.

you can really identify which one of your friends matches Eva, Debbie, Mandy and Kai, it's an amazing book that kinda makes you think about your friendships as well.

an amazing book with a great plot and characters which you can identify with so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure at Heart 19 May 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
What a cute, funny novel - and that means a lot coming from an adult reading a teen novel. Yet, the plot intrigued me from the get go and I couldn't resist. Call it a guilty pleasure.
Revolving around four best friends, the story finds Mandy, Kai, Debbie, and Eva vying for a unique $160,000 scholarship, one that requires its applicants to be "pure." The problem is that everyone, including school personnel, are stumped on the purity portion. How can you judge who's really pure?
To answer this burning question, Mandy (with her friends' help) brings The V Club to life - an organization uplifting the virtues of virginity. Yet all four girls are keeping secrets that could dismantle the club before it even gets off the ground.
With all these secrets, tensions are flaring. Through it all though, the girls learn valuable lessons in friendship and what it means to pure at heart ... and that's where it really counts.

A Kid's Review - Published on
one of the greatest books i have evcer read. it discusses almost every topic imaginable. one of the reasons i loved this book was because it discussed sex and what can happen after you have it. Mandy did it for the wrong reason and this book can show girls the bad effects of having sex. it showed how girls can work hard to get what they want. it shows how firends help friends out when their in bad situations. it shows how doing things another person wants you to do can hurt you. this book show inspiration, determination, and much more. it's easy to read and discusses all sorts of types of situations. it was really inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars The V-Club 21 Oct 2005
By Leanna Schild - Published on
The V-Club(virginity club) starts when Mrs. Treemont suddenly passes away and leaves behind a mysterious scholarship. The Treemont Scholarship requires that you "exemplify purity of soul and body" in order to recieve it. Becaus of this scholarship, four friends, Eva, Debbie, Mandy, and Kai, must learn how to deal with the problems in their lives. They all want, and need, the scholarship for there own secret perosnal reasons. In her book " The V-Club", Kate Brian tells a intriguing story about the crazy lives of four best friends who compete with each other for a scholarship that requires them to expain why they think that they are pure enough to recieve it. This is a very funny, but serious book, relatable to "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants", that helps you to understand what most all teenage girls in high school go through every day. It lets you understand just how hard it is for teenage girls to juggle boys, family, and school, while still trying to take care of themselves. Brian tells a profound story that's up-to-date, and unpredictable, which any girl can relate to.

A Kid's Review - Published on
The V Club

By: Kate Brian

The V Club by Kate Brian was an exemplary book. It all starts when a very wealthy woman named Victoria A. Treemont passes and leaves a $160,000 scholarship fund to one student that meets her standards at Ardsmore High. In order to receive the scholarship you have to be smart and well rounded just like any other scholarship but there is a catch. In the scholarship it says you have to be "pure". All the kids are nervous about what she means by the word "pure" but most of them think she means you have to be a virgin. The counselor tells people that want to be scouted for the scholarship to go to the counselor to tryout. The four friends Mandy, Kai, Debbie, and Eva are trying out. Everyone is wondering why Mandy is trying out because everyone knows she filthy rich. People are wondering why Debbie is trying out because no one believes she is "pure." Kai is a volley ball player and no one thinks she will need a scholarship because she'll get it on athletics. Eva is the only one that anyone believes will have a chance 1) because Eva is definitely "pure" and 2) because Eva is very intelligent. But is Mandy so rich? Is Debbie "un pure?" is Kai pure at all? Find out when you read the book it's full of surprises. I recommend that children 11 and up should read this book, but you should be mature enough to read it so know your maturity level. Mostly girls should read this book.

The writing style of this book is really different. The author took time to let you know how each girl is feeling and what she's going through and you know a lot things about the characters before the other characters do. For instance, "I think you should withdraw your name consideration" Mandy said. "Why don't you?" Kai demanded. "It's not like you need it." "How do you know what I need!?" Mandy said before she could rethink it. "You have no idea what's going on with me!"... "Well, maybe there's stuff I'm not telling you because it's none of your business." I really like the theme of this book. I have never read a book with the same plot and the theme is not commonly used.

I think this book was delightful. It was full of surprises and mystery. It had a lot of good points. Anyone of any sex can read this book. I would recommend it for girls though because of the content. Children that are mature can read this but I recommend it for children ages 11 and up.

4.0 out of 5 stars a fun, surprising read 18 May 2004
By Teen Reads - Published on
The V Club is started when a group of high school students vie for a scholarship to be awarded to someone on the basis of "purity," among other things. What does that mean? No one knows for certain, but friends Mandy, Kai, Debbie and Eva think it may be about virginity.
In the same style as the popular SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS by Ann Brashares, this story follows the four girls on a rotating basis so readers see their points of view individually. They each need the scholarship for college in the fall and grapple with certain issues.
Mandy was just getting ready to take things with her long-term boyfriend to the next level. Kai may or may not belong in the V Club (she's not saying), but why does the presence of ex-boyfriend Andres cause her such pain? Debbie is known as a tease, but dating several guys does not make her promiscuous, does it? She is also trying to get her father to understand that she doesn't want to study math and science, but rather fashion design. Would he pay for that or even accept it? And Eva --- she's sweet, nice and smart, but still waters run deep. Eva has it bad for the fabulous Riley --- but does he want Debbie like the rest of them?
THE V CLUB takes this likeable cast and intertwines them in a plot with many surprises. Rather than identifying with a certain character, readers will be more likely to find that there is some of each of the girls in themselves. This book is not about sexuality --- it's about wanting to grow up and knowing when you are (or are not) ready to do so.
