Lists with This Book. Jul 20, Joanne rated it it was amazing Shelves: But then Benjamin Hopkins joins the school.

Rohar far will she go to get her guy? I really like this book! It reads a lot like it could be part of an American TV tee year-old Spencer is a virgin, and is happy to be. It reads a lot like it could be part of an American TV teen programme; the teens were so lifelike and believable. Ryan, for example; he may use girls a lot, but he was hot and funny, so it was easy gibing see how he could get away with it.

I also admired how she was still able to pretty much be herself around him despite it all, it was cool. It was a gviing disturbing how tenacious she was, and how she made it seem like some school project, like no big deal, but something that had to be done — with no feelings.

It was great to see these two different attitudes and stories running along each other. There were no actual sex scenes in this book, but there were some almost-sex scenes that were really well written. It was a great depiction of how Spencer was feeling AND thinking towards what was happening, and keeping those two things clearly separate worked well.

This was an awesome book overall dealing with a sensitive subject with great characters and a lot of humour. May 15, Regina rated it it was ok Shelves: This book was NOT what I expected it to be.

From the description, I was truly expecting a humorous journey through the life of Spencer Davis, proud virgin. What I got was a journey through the life of Spencer Davis, I’m not a prude, and I’m not a stranger to books that cover the sexual ideas and philosophies of teenaagers, but this book left me unsatisfied. Spencer Davis has just turned And in her house that means her first trip to th So And in her house that means givint first trip to the serenw and a brand new shiny pack of birth control pills.

Igving first date in the stirrups proves to be mortifying but not fatal and Spencer is less than enthused about receiving this rites of passage because she personally can’t see herself needing the pills.

She isn’t very much like the other members of her “Crew”, who are very much sexually active. Then Ryan, the school clown who changes girls like underwear Zachary and Allysa Soon-Yi are the only other virgins in the Crew, but Zachary is tired of his gentleman reputation and Allysa wants to have a one-night stand so that she can just get the whole virginity thing “out of the way”.


Spencer isn’t interested in any flings or one-night-stands, though her mother assures her that it may happen so fast that she will be glad she was prepared. First of all, she’s a size 13, and can’t imagine finding a man who wants to see the body she normally hides underneath sweatshirts and baggy pants. She also believes sex should mean something and wants her first time to be with someone who makes her tingle all over her body, and not just in her nether regions.

Then suddenly, and I mean like same week, suddenlythere appears in the school a new student. Benjamin Hopkins walks up and asks her for directions to the main office and Spencer is suddenly twitterpated. She can barely remember her name, and by the time she gets to Chemistry class and finds that Ben is her new lab partner, she can hardly even speak.

Yet she somehow speaks well enough to agree to let Ben copy her notes.

And thus begins my loss of interest in Ms. I can totally understand the urgency and unexpected ways love or in this case “lust” can creep up on adults and teenagers alike, but for Spencer to go from “never have I ever” to “Bring it On”, was unbelievable for me.

The fact that she didn’t really “know” Ben, I could get over, but the way she quickly fell into letting him copy her homework, slob her down and grope her up Ghe also grew frustrated hy how easily the reader could see where Spencer’s true affections and issues laid, while she was clueless.

The real stories were with Spencer’s friends This book closed sweetly enough, but without much to write home about. It could fit comfortably into any booklist that contains Forever by Judy Blume Jun 18, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo.

Spencer hasn’t told anyone about her crush on Ben and she’s getting the vibe that Ben is into her as welland she’s conflicted when she sees Ben has made it to 1 on Alyssa’s list. She’s torn between keeping her friend happy and following her own desires.

It doesn’t help when her friend Zach starts keeping his distance from her. Though he assures her that everything is okay, Spencer isn’t so sure. And she’s also confused when she realizes that Zach has started to sport some well-defined muscles of his own. Spencer could be any teenage girl struggling with the emotions of her first crush. She’s flattered that she’s captured his attention, but then uncomfortable with his fast moves. There’s girl drama, romance, and amusing situations that the characters find themselves in.


Some of the most entertaining parts are Justin’s attempts to win Morgan back in their up and down romance. The story doesn’t promote sexual activity even though the title may suggest otherwise. It’s a good look at the pros and cons of going all the way the first time. Jul 23, Amy rated it really liked it.

From the opening scene at her first gyno exam to the last scene playing guitar hero with her friends, this book was funny and cute. Not an original plot by any means but an enjoyable read nevertheless. Spencer and her gang of friends had me laughing at some of their hijinks and saying “Ahh” at some of the sweeter moments. Robar really touched on the importance of friendship and being true to yourself and your decisions.

And what YA book wouldn’t be complete without it’s resident bad boy you love From the opening scene at her first gyno exam to the last scene playing guitar hero with her friends, this book was funny and cute. And what YA book wouldn’t be complete without it’s resident bad boy you love to hate?

You can’t beat a book that opens up with the MC, Spencer, experiencing her first gyno visit, lol. She wanted to be in love with the person. She’s slightly horrified at how her bff Alyssa is on a mission to lose hers to anyone, anyhow simply to get Wow, I love, love, loved this book, and I love the author’s use of voice. She’s slightly horrified at how her bff Alyssa is on a mission to lose hers to anyone, anyhow simply to get it over with and potentially give herself a rep to date more guys.

Well, Alyssa does give herself a goal of the Winter Formal. The book has Spencer and her group of girl and guy friends. You have Morgan and Justin, the on and off again couple, Ryan the manwhore player, Zach the sweet, nice guy of the group, Alyssa, and Spencer.

Enter the new badboy hottie, Ben. He begins to hang out with their group, and both Alyssa and Spencer have the hots tobar him.

But the moment he blew into the book, I didn’t want to see either one end up with him. He impressed me as even more of a manwhore player, asshat, douchebag than the group’s friend, Ryan. When it looks like Spencer wants to lose her virignity, Ryan is ready and willing to take her Vcard. Through convos with Ryan’s mom, who wants Spencer to date Ryan to ground him a bit, as well as the way he acts around her, we see that Ryan is sort of a manwhore with a heart, and that he might potentially like Spencer.
