Lindsey Rosin, bursting with directing and producing credits on stage and screen, gives us her fresh and saucy YA debut novel, with a tongue-in-cheek premise: what happens when a gaggle of girls go on a determined quest to lose their (respective) virginity(s)? YA lovers will not want to miss this insouciant debut novelist, director of musicals and up and coming TV writer, and hear what she has to say about Cherry and more! Reading, q&a, signing.
In this honest, frank, and funny debut novel, four best friends make a pact during their senior year of high school to lose their virginities—and end up finding friendship, love, and self-discovery along the way. To be honest, the sex pact wasn’t always part of the plan. Layla started it. She announced it super casually to the rest of the girls between bites of frozen yogurt, as if it was just simply another addition to her massive, ever-evolving To Do List. She is determined to have sex for the first time before the end of high school. Initially, the rest of the crew is scandalized, but, once they all admit to wanting to lose their v-cards too, they embark on a quest to do the deed together… separately….Layla’s got it in the bag. Her serious boyfriend, Logan, has been asking for months…..Alex has already done it. Or so she says….Emma doesn’t know what the fuss is all about, but sure, she’ll give it a shot…..And Zoe, well, Zoe can’t even say the o word without bursting into giggles.Will everything go according to plan? Probably not.
“An insightful tale about the true bonds between young women, like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants but deliciously saucier.” — Refinery29
