When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.
After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy.
As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.
How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?

This is one of those books that every mother of a teenage girl should have her read. This is coming from the mother of a fifteen year old daughter who lives in a very urban city. The issues touched in this book, obviously virginity, is one of the most important message that young girls, especially in cities like mine, need to hear. I'm saddened to say that I have seen girls, no older than thirteen, with kids of their own in my own city. I can just imagine what the rest of the world is like when my city is still considered small to some.... tragic thought really.
Plus, the author puts this story in a way that kids will read, with their lingo and fluidity of a teenager, but the parents will like it too. Well, the moms, who am I kidding....
Kids feel so much pressure to have sex. It's been that way since the test of time. We as parents need to stay involved, and sometimes that means getting creative in how we try to instill lessons. Try telling a teenager what to do and see what happens... most times a slight rebellion ensues... But find ways to put the same message into them in a way the will take it instead of fight it, and watch the dialogue open up.
Okay, I know not all families are the same, and maybe you have a perfect teenager who listens to your every word.... LOL... Yeah, that's what I thought....
This is one of those creative ways I was previously babbling about. If your teen reads, which I'm certain they do, give them this book. What's the worst that could happen?
