Virgins- TLC Book Tour Review


What Virgins is about:
For the seniors at Immaculate Heart High, hormones jousted with the quest for the State of Grace, and the hormones usually won.  The Map of Forbidden Sexual Delights extended its boundaries nightly in the back seats of tail-finned cars. But the girls of Virgins also wanted more. Who could they grow up to be in a word where women were supposed to be seen, but not heard?  They were rebels with a cause, before their time.

When I read the premise of this book I have to admit that I thought it would be a great read because I generally like coming of age stories, note that I stated "generally." This story just did not grab me and even though I did like the main character, Peg, I realized that I'm just not the target market for this book. Now if my eighteen-year-old self had read this one then I think you would be reading an entirely different review! My younger self would have gobbled this book right up and loved every sex-thought filled moment.

Recommend? Um, not really. I had a hard time staying with this story and really caring about anything that was going on with the characters. I'm sure a younger reader, say ages 16-28, would appreciate this much more than I did.

  2. Yow! Sorry this was didn't do anything for you. It's hard to be objective some times if the story doesn't grab you. It's interesting to think back on what you would or would not have liked in a book

  7. International bestseller? Really? It doesn't sound all that great but then again, I am not the target market.

  9. I generally enjoy coming of age stories as well, but do find myself very picky about them.
