How do you go from being dumped to starting a campaign to have the right to remain a virgin until you get married?

Start a moral crusade?

After what happened to her Mother Val decides to not to give up her virginity until marriage. Her Mother had lost hers at 16 and became pregnant with Val after a one night stand and didn't remember who the father was.

We begin her story when her boyfriend of 3 months wants to take the relationship one step further - yep the S word. Val makes it clear to Zach that she doesn't want to end up like her birth Mother. Zach ends the relationship and the word is that Val is hopeless in bed. To make sure that everyone gets the record straight she stands up on a table, in the cafeteria and announces that the reason that she and Zack were no longer together was because she wouldn't sleep with him. "That's right she yells, I am a virgin and proud of it"

This story will not be to everyone's taste. It certainly was not mine. I didn't think it was romantic, original or entertaining and at time got completely on my nerves. I didn't like her characters, There are many aspects of this book that girls (and boys) may relate to but for me it was too clichéd.

What the book failed to mention is that it is also okay if people want to have sex. In fact Val who was supposed to respect people's choices had no problem insulting the people who actually wanted to have sex and when her best friend points out about her double standard the author does not deal with it or expand it any further.

What finally knocked it on the head for me was that the writer advocated in her book that because virgin Val stuck to her principles the number of teenage pregnancies in America had decreased by more than 12%. Really?

The book tried to deliver a moral "Gossip Girl" type story. It just didn't work for me and I certainly would not recommend it to teenagers.

I read a lot; one book a day on weekdays, around five or six every weekend. So much that I've pretty much read anything that could interest me, I'm settling for crap most of the time. From time to time though, I stumble upon an author I didnt know about, something rather surprisingly enjoyable.
V is for Virgin and A is for Abstinence are the best romance books I've read all year, well written, fascinating and yeah, a bit cheesy but the amazing writing carries it of. Just wow.

I'll tell you one thing Kelly Oram I'm gonna tell you something I felt so emotionally touched by this book and it was so well written it played inside of my head like a movie and out of the trillions of books out there I can truly say this about only a handful of books this book was amazing and I'd be intrigued to know what inspired this story and advice for me to advance through my writing career but here is the thing that will shock you most of all I'm 8 yrs old

Really good, and very inspiring.
A feel good book that made me feel good about who I am, an I'm 15, so that's not easy to do.
It made me feel proud to be who I am, and to stand up for myself in the future, as you never know what might become of the situation!!!!!!

I am pretty annoyed at this book especially the ending. The author was obviously trying to champion her agenda for virginity/abstinence being a valid life choice for young people but she missed the mark. At the end of the story, when we are reunited with some of the main characters, it is Virgin Val who is the most unfulfilled, Cara is happily married to Shane, the man she gave her virginity to; Robin and Isaac are happily married to their respective partners and soon Stephanie will also join this happy club. For being good and responsible people, who also stayed true to themselves, they got their well deserved HEA's, but what does poor Val get? Kyle, a guy who has kept sleeping around in the intervening four years and to compound things he has also had a fiancée, who he was obviously happy to commit to till she cheated on him, only then did he "figure it out" and come for Val who was "Worth Waiting For". Really?? The only one who seemed to be waiting was Val and it appears she was just lucky Kyle's fiancée wasn't the devoted type! Why did the author introduce a fiancée at all, why not let Kyle be with other girls but decide himself that his lifestyle was unfulfilling, then after abstaining from sex for eight months he should have had to actively pursue and woo Val, as opposed to just turning up on a chat show where he throws her a couple of lines and she falls straight back into his well used arms, the feminist dream is alive and well, not!! Why create such a strong and intelligent female character, who withstood so much for her ideology, only to have her story end on a simper? On both Val's and Kyle's behalf I feel very let down!

I enjoyed this book and would recommend this book to others. i liked how although it was based around sex it gave a different perspective to the usual teen books. only thing i didnt like was the ending it kinda ended and didnt give you the answer you were waiting the whole book for did they get married and live happily ever after? if i had been given more to the ending i would probably have given it 5 stars but the ending was too disappointing for me!
