Book: Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn.
Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.
Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.
When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, FIRSTS is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up.

My eyes burn. The tears want to come, but I won’t let them. Then I write down the worst thing of all, something I didn’t even know was true until I stare at it on the paper.
He made me feel like nothing. Like I was the most pathetic person in the whole universe. Maybe I am.

Sounds like an intriguing story. Today I am featuring Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman from my review stack. Happy reading!
Sounds like something completely different. That excerpt makes me want to weep for her. So sad.
Mine is an oldie – Anita Shreve – Fortune’s Rocks.
I’m curious about Mercedes and would like to learn more about her. Sounds like she has some serious issues.
My Friday post features FELICITY’S POWER.
I don’t think that this is my kind of book, at all. But, enjoy. 🙂
I don’t believe she asked, but enjoy!
