The Virgin Diaries by Kimberley A. Johnson & Ann Werner

The Virgin Diaries takes a look at sex and all the questions, doubts, worries that comes along with It. Kimberly and Ann asked 72 different people online to share their experiences with sex and their first time. What they ended up with is 72 different stories filled with very different personal experiences. The authors allow them to tell their stories without input on analyzing them.

Our rating 4 out of 5 personal stars

This is not the kind of book we are used to reading at Forever YA (we mostly read fiction), but with that said we really enjoyed this book. Each story was different but in a strange way the same. Some stories made us laugh, some made us cringe, and some made us cry. We were warned by the author that this book was written for virgins, so we thought we might not be able to connect to it at all. We were so wrong. It even brought back memories for us and got us talking about them. No one ever forgets their first time, and this book proves that sex has a way of connecting all of us. Side note: this book is also good for YA writers who want to write about their characters experiencing their first time. Virgin Diaries makes it easy to open up a conversation about something that at times still feels taboo to speak about.

So grab a cozy blanket and read The Virgin Diaries
