If American Pie was gender-flipped, you'd get Cherry by Lindsey Rosin. It's so much more than that, though, because, duh, young women and sexuality is far more intriguing a concept with a lot more stereotypes and hate to overcome. In their senior year of high school, four best female friends make a pact to lose their virginities. Layla has a serious boyfriend, Alex claims she has already done it, Zoe blushes at the idea of sex, and Emma doesn't get caught up in all this sex stuff. Rosin's debut is LOL-worthy, but it also has a lot to say about female friendship and sexuality. -- Bustle

I wanted to like this more than I did.
In ways, it was utterly realistic.
In others, it was utterly unrealistic.
For example, I simply don't believe, in this day and age, that none of these girls, as seniors in high school, would know how to masturbate. Nope. You can't convince me otherwise.
Beyond that,Layla's character was a little too uptight for my taste and most of the guys were complete douche bags.
Overall, it was a fun idea...sort of 'American Pie' for girls...but I don't feel it was executed all that well.
Reviewers have said Ages 14 and up, and I adore it and I'm no stick in the mud, but as a teacher, I'd say 16 and up, minimum. There's some pretty explicit, but appropriate to the plot, sexual content.
I love the voices of all the characters and I love the messages sent by this book for young women: take charge of yourself, control your destiny, understand your body, listen to your gut, love is love.
I think it's really well done and it isn't a high brow, YA masterpiece, but it's super enjoyable. A great read.
The dialogue between the girls was pretty good, but their reactions to events weren't always believable based on the personality they were assigned. There are way better coming-of-age or "sexual awakening" books out there with complex characters and meaningful interactions. Try "The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things" or "13 Reasons Why."
