A scholarship with the dubious criteria of "purity" pits four high school senior friends against one another. Shy Eva believes she has no chance at winning the scholarship she so desperately wants and no chance to be with the man of her dreams, fellow classmate Riley Marx, whose straight-edged beliefs are at odds with the macho-man behaviors of his friends.
Debbie can think of nothing better than being accepted to the Fashion Institute of Technology, but her father insists that she go into the sciences at nearby Penn State. She's also realizing how bad her reputation as a slut is--even though, technically, she's never had sex--and hopes that her latest prospect Riley can see through that.
Mandy is perfect: she's got the grades, looks, money, and boyfriend Eric. Little does everyone--including her friends--know that she's hiding a terrible family secret that could ruin her life. And new girl Kai, she with a secret in her past, needs more padding in her resume and so runs for president of the Virginity Club that Mandy formed to uphold the "purity" aspect of the scholarship criteria--which is clearly referring to virginity, of course.
But how important is virginity and everything else related if it threatens to tear the four girls apart?
This is a charming discussion of subject that can be rather touchy. It's a great light read.
Cute and a good read, but not one that I would read over and over again.
KAte Brian is a really good author. i love the Private series and this is the first of her other books i've attempted and could not put it down. read it in one sitting.
This was a very good book. It only took me 2 days to read it.
