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.
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.
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!!!!!!
