Happy Wednesday! Let’s take a look at another book that’s coming up (not quite quickly enough!) in the next few months.
Author: Laurie Elizabeth Flynn
Publication Date: January 5th, 2016
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Summary from Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.
Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.
When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, FIRSTS is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up.
I’m always looking for YA books that are original and different, and this one definitely sounds like it fits that pretty well. I even love the cover. This book promises to be different and “one-of-a-kind,” and from the summary, I really can’t wait to read this one!
