Take for instance this book, the virgin thing. This is a huge deal in high school. I haven’t met anyone who didn’t take this decision incredibly serious. And I love how she wrote Val. How she was embarrassed about it at first but she still stuck to her guns, and even went so far as to make it into a movement. The only issue I had, which was so minor as to barely warrant a mention, was how fast everything blew up. She got famous sooo quickly and I found that a bit hard to swallow. But whateves, that wasn’t really the main focus of the story anyway. I mean, it kinda was, but everything would have happened regardless so I dismissed it.
Kyle was the predictable bad boy. Snarky, disrespectful and entirely too self centered. As a rock star I can totally see how everyone giving into his wants would make him expect it. But he went too far in my opinion, and his sweet moments were too far and few between for me to really think he was sincere.
It was Cara that really pissed me off. I couldn’t believe how the best friend could turn into her enemy so quickly. I found her selfish and controlling. And she was determined to have what she wanted regardless of her BEST FRIENDS convictions. She just didn’t care. And she tried to use emotional blackmail to get her way which was an immediate deal breaker for me. What kind of friend doesn’t support you, especially at your most vulnerable. At that point she was irredeemable and I was glad when Val told her off. What a brat!
The ending was so refreshing. I can’t really say much more without it being spoilery so you should just go read it to find out.
I loooooved the heat between Val and Kyle. I’m a little bit of a sucker for the ‘all up in your personal space’ kind of passion. I enjoy it in books almost as much as I enjoy it when my husband surprises me like that. And that is pretty much Kyle’s signature move.
I think the issue of being/feeling pressured to have sex as a teenager is tackled pretty well in this book. It is a BIG deal. And honestly, I hated how many of the characters were portrayed as whining that they weren’t ‘getting any’ because – why has this become such an everyday occurrence? What is wrong with this being special. And I mean really special? Not something that is expected of you with every passing boyfriend or girlfriend. I felt like both ends of the spectrum were laid out pretty well. I felt like my personal convictions were adequately portrayed as well as how others feel on the matter. A very fair assessment.
Not So Much: I didn’t realize when I picked this book up that it was a part of a series. (If two books can be considered a series.) The first book stands alone well enough, but no one is NOT going to want to pick up A is for Abstinence. But I really wanted it to be a stand alone. ::insert my own pouty face here::
Go buy Kelly Oram’s books! Clearly this particular book has sex talk in it…but it is a clean book. Good for teens.
