22 August 2012

Hey guys! Today I have something pretty cool that I think you guys will agree with me on. I've been lucky enough to work with author Kelly Oram in the past and when she asked me if I'd do this post to share the cover, summary and an excerpt/teaser of her soon to be released title - V is for Virgin, I jumped up and down at the chance. Yep, I actually jumped up and down! So, last night she sent me the info and I can't tell you how excited I am to read this book. SERIOUSLY EXCITED! Take a look, read what Kelly's passed along to share with everyone and let her know in comments when you guys think. 

Title: V is for Virgin
Available in December 2012
Add V is for Virgin to Goodreads: HERE

Summary: When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.

After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy.

As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.

How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?


          I tried to prepare myself, because whatever was making Robin look so pale couldn't be good news.
          "You haven't seen Tralse's website today." She said it as a statement, not a question.
          Without saying another word—apparently there were none to explain the coming horror—Robin surfed over to Tralse's website. Aside from having posted videos from the concert last night of their new song, Kyle had posted a new blog.
          "Ten reasons why Virgin Val sucks?" I screeched.
          A couple walking past the store looked up, startled, so I bit my tongue to keep from spouting profanities of my own.
          I clicked on the blog. There was no way to make myself not click on it.

          The Top Ten Reasons Why Virgin Val Sucks

          10. She called me a one-hit-wonder.
          9. She doesn't appreciate the endearing nickname I gave her.
          8. She makes me write stupid blogs about her at four in the morning.
          7. She's encouraging people not to have sex.
          6. She blew me off when I asked her out.
          5. She has a crush on a douche bag.
          4. She won't answer any of my calls.
          3. She's such a tease with her look-but-don't-touch policy.
          2. I played a whole effing concert JUST FOR HER and she didn't come, even though she told me she would. (You're such a liar!)
          And the #1 reason why Virgin Val sucks?
          I still want her anyway.

          A full minute of silence passed with me simply staring at the computer screen, blinking over and over, hoping that the next time my eyes closed the blog would disappear.
          "It's actually very sweet,” Robin said. “If you think about it."
          My jaw, which had already fallen slack, hit the floor as I gaped at her. "Sweet?" I choked on the word. "I'm going to KILL him!"

So, what do you guys think? Sounds pretty amazing if you ask me! I really can't wait to read it!!!
