V is for Virgin by Kelly Oram Review


Title: V is for Virgin
Author: Kelly Oram

Blurb from Goodreads:

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?


I had started this book since I needed a book that started with the letter V to add to one of the reading challenges on Goodreads. I had no idea what to expect from this book when I started it, but am very happy I chose to read it in the end.

I loved that Val stayed true to what she believed in, but in some way I do think the author should have challenged her a little more. I also loved the great success she had even though sometimes it was all a little too much for her. Her best friend Cara, well yeah, I kinda had a love/hate relationship with her. Oh and Kyle…sweet Kyle..pain in the ass Kyle..sexiest man in the world Kyle…I do have to admit he kinda went all out to try and win Val over, even if some of the things he did were a little over the top to say the least. I liked to see the story that developed between them and also how slowly he started to change his ways as well.

Every teen girl should also read this and parent’s should be ashamed to buy this book either. If your daughter wants to read this, let her! She may come off for the better too!
