Lots of teen sex talk, but it never gets raunchy.

Light read for teens

The Virginity Club is a light and fun chick-lit read for 6th grade and up. The book is not sinful like Common Sense Media makes it out to be. This book is actually a lot lighter than most young adult books. It's a safe read for kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This is a fun little book following the choices and consequences of sexuality among high school girls. Author Kate Brian steers away from the raunchy while keeping the fun and realistic high school banter in place. Brian does a great job examining four different girls in four different situations as they all grapple with what it means to be "pure." Perhaps most realistic of all is the situation Debbie Patel finds herself in. Her flirty behavior has people believing she's done more than she has and it doesn't bother her until dreamboat Rylie and her teachers assume the worst.

Parents may hesitate at the sexual discussions and situations, however Brian really nails what girls experience. While the book can get trite at times, characters are thoughtful and through self-reflection find the best solutions for themselves, which is what all parents hope for their daughters.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
