It's all about us: me, Gillian, Carly, Shanni, Mac. . . and God.

#1 - It's All About Us by Shelley Adina, FaithWords, 2008
It's All About Us (All About Us Series, Book 1)
Genre: Realistic
Target Audience: Girls 16-18
Subjects: Sex, sexual interactions, dating, friendships
Summary: Lissa is in love. Well, at least lust anyway. That's what her friend from back home, Katz, and her roommate, Gillian, tell her. Lust or love, she wants that boy and she's going to do what it takes to keep him... she thinks. The trouble is, keeping him may require surrender of her pledge to remain a virgin... unless... maybe she can give him sex without actually going all the way. That's his suggestion. When she asks her friend Katz for advice he tells it to her straight, but she's determined to keep Callum no matter what Katz or Gillian say. 
Notes: This book gets into it's subject, big time. It doesn't leave a whole lot to the imagination. But it explores a very real issue that teens are facing. And it shows quite clearly right and wrong without being legalistic. If your teen is out there in the world, dealing with these issues, hanging out with teens who are dealing with these issues then I highly recommend it. If your teen is sheltered, I don't recommend it.
This book is the first in the All About Us series. 
Recommendation Scale: 4.8
