Mara Valentine knows what she is doing in life. As a straight A senior student, she takes extra classes at the college so that she will be able to graduate early. She is a vegan (although she often craves cheese) and a virgin ( hence the title). But V, Mara's niece who is only one year younger than Mara is the complete opposite. And Mara can't stand her. V is slutty, smokes, and LOVES meat. So when Mara's parents invite V to come live with them when V's mom decides to move Mara is pretty annoyed. Especially since V manages to snag Mara's ex on her first day in school. Mara hates V. Then things start to change. And V and Mara eventually they realize they have more in common than they think and just maybe they might understand each other.
I really enjoyed this book. Although it was a very quick read, it was enjoyable. Carolyn Mackler manages to suprise you when you least expect it throughout the book. It was funny and quirky. I also liked that this book wasn't so over the top sappy with a happy ending. Sure things turn out well but realistic. The characters change a lot throughout the story. I don't want to spoil anything but I highly suggest this book for a quick read.
