Cute high school story, but nothing special. ( )
  EmilyRokicki | Feb 26, 2016 |
i thought this was a great take on the idea of purity in school. Many books that are centered around this concept become preachy and demeaning, yet this story was more so an average high school put into book form. I found it very relatable and touching ( )

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. ( )

Eva Farrell dreaded meeting with her guidance counselor more than she dreaded dental appointments and final exams and even those evil mock trials she was forced to participate in for history class.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689867646, Hardcover)

When Victoria A. Treemont, the most revered and reclusive woman in Ardsmore, Pennsylvania, passes away, she leaves behind a $160,000 scholarship fund that rocks the worlds of the students at Ardsmore High School. The successful candidate must "exemplify purity of soul, spirit, and body." Everyone agrees that this caveat can mean only one thing: The recipient of the scholarship must still be holding on to the big V.

Welcome to the V Club -- where members embrace abstinence, get off on civic duties, and heat up their chances to clinch the Treemont scholarship. What better way to prove purity than to pledge allegiance to the virginity flag? Besides, chastity belts are sooo 1300s.

Kai, Mandy, Debbie, and Eva have put their futures on the line. But will their deepest insecurities and darkest secrets ruin their chances at the scholarship, or worse, their relationships? Or will they discover the true meaning behind Mrs. Treemont's famous last words?
