    One thought on “Dear Big V”

    1. I wanted to like this book, because it is so important to have quality books that look at sex and sexuality honestly, and encourage people to be true to themselves whether that choice is to have sex or not have sex. But, between blatant slut shaming, unlikable characters (including the protagonist), a focus that is only on sex and nothing else, and language that is inundated with metaphor to the extent that I actually got tired of them, I can't say this would be the book I would choose.

    2. When you look up the definition of “prude” in the dictionary, there are no words to define it, there’s only a picture of Courtney Condon. Courtney is the epitome of a good girl, she’s modest, and she’s the founder of Donuts and Coffee, the schools abstinence club. On top of all of that, she is also the only one in the school that can resist the charms of Lance Lindsey, the most gorgeous guy in school and the school’s total player.Lance is THAT guy, you know the one, we all know the o [...]

    3. Overall I'm not really sure what I thought of this book. I'll start with what I liked about it.I liked Courtney, she is strong yet unsure and she has a quirky sense of humor that I appreciate. I think she can be a realistic teenager, constantly trying to understand what she believes. I also like how the situation was tackled. With so many books out there with pre-marital sex as something that no one truly thinks about (except to do it), this was refreshing that the other side was explored. I lik [...]

    4. Courtney Condon is a junior who is suddenly facing a lot of issues. The school club she started a year ago for students committed to staying virgins until marriage is being taken over by a new girl who wants to ramp us their profile and be more confrontational. Her mother won’t talk about sex, and she acts as though it’s the cause of all evil. To make things worse, Courtney finds her own resolve weakening as she becomes attracted to the cutest boy in school, who has a reputation as a “play [...]

    5. Courtney's caught in the middle of a battle between the Lewds and the Prudes at her school after a not-so-subtle attack by some members of the abstinence group she formed. Although she wasn't involved, she's still getting a lot of flak for it. And with the Op Ed piece, her values are tested when she's paired with Lance. She's in for quite the ride.Ellen W. Leroe did a wonderful job of creating a book about abstinence and being true to yourself without one bit of preachiness. A lot of books of th [...]

    6. Courtney Condon is a likeable character: funny, smart, caring and reliable, with a somewhat difficult home situation. Her mother is devoutly Catholic and fervently anti-sex - to the point that Courtney's older brother Cody has had to move out and her father sleeps on the sofa. Initially, none of this is really a big problem for Courtney, who shares her mother's values to some extent; she founded an abstinence club at school (Delaware Valley High School) called Coffee and Doughnuts. Courtney's la [...]

    7. I'm not for sure why I picked up Dear Big V. I knew the topic was virginity, but wow, it's about all anyone really talks about. The opening begins with the MC just chatting it up with her BIG V which was all sorts of weird.I found Courtney to be a mix of things. A little bit naive, a tad bit annoying, bold when she wants to be, and a confused teenage girl. The idea of being pressured with boys is a topic a lot of people might like to read about. Most of what happens with Courtney was all very pr [...]

    8. A girl starts a virginity club at her high school would be my one sentence summation.Well, that's true, but there's more to this book. One could say that this book is all about sex and the choice to do or not to do (that is the question, ha ha). However, I think that this book addresses more issues that feel relevant. She deals with the popular girls at school, her mother's coldness, and some other issues. Thankfully, that keeps this book from being only about one thing.The character was likable [...]

    9. I guess all I can say is I really did not like this book. I found it boring and very hard to get into. The main character, Courtney, is one of the main problems I had with this book. She really annoyed me. There was just something about her her that I didn't like. She was irrational, a little bit obsessed, and just plain stupid at times. For example, her relationship with Lance. At one point she claims she thinks she is in love with him, but in truth they only even talked a couple of times.This [...]

    10. A 16-year-old girl writing letters to her virginity? Yep, this is a bizarre concept, but that is the basis of the novel. It bothered me how close-minded this girl was, in that she was constantly judging her peers. The book is similar in plot to the novel, PURE, where a girl struggles with her vow to remain pure and her friends are divided on the issue. I liked the dialogue and felt the story was fast-paced, but I found the main character to be a bit irritating in how she seemed to think she was [...]

    11. My immediate reaction after reading this book was "weird." The characters were realistic and the scenario was amusing, but maybe a little too extreme. Yes, teenagers have to make the decision to abstain from sex or not, and yes that decision can become a part of one's identity. But a girl writing to her virginity? May be worth adding to the collection to help students realize that abstinence is an option, but might be more effective if the narrator was sure of that herself.

    12. I really liked Ellen Leroe's writing style -- it was reminiscent of Louise Rennison's Georgia books. Though the story was thoroughly predictable and at times unrealistic, it was a fun, quick read.
