9780689867644: The V Club

When Victoria A. Treemont, the most revered and reclusive woman in Ardsmore, Pennsylvania, passes away, she leaves behind a $160,000 scholarship fund that rocks the worlds of the students at Ardsmore High School. The successful candidate must "exemplify purity of soul, spirit, and body." Everyone agrees that this caveat can mean only one thing: The recipient of the scholarship must still be holding on to the big V.
Welcome to the V Club -- where members embrace abstinence, get off on civic duties, and heat up their chances to clinch the Treemont scholarship. What better way to prove purity than to pledge allegiance to the virginity flag? Besides, chastity belts are sooo 1300s.
Kai, Mandy, Debbie, and Eva have put their futures on the line. But will their deepest insecurities and darkest secrets ruin their chances at the scholarship, or worse, their relationships? Or will they discover the true meaning behind Mrs. Treemont's famous last words?

About the Author:

Kate Brian is the author of the NY Times and USA Today best-selling Private series and it's spin-off series, Privilege. She has also written many other books for teens including Sweet 16 and Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys.

From Booklist:

Gr. 9-12. Call it the Nunnery of the Traveling Pants--or, in the lingo of the recent teen-hormone fest by Melvin Burgess (see companion review), Not Doing It. Produced by 17th Street Productions, the same book mill responsible for Ann Brashares' Pants duet, this slickly packaged novel deals with the strain that vying for the same scholarship puts on a group of friends, all senior girls. What makes the competition particularly freighted is its unusual stipulation: the winning candidate "must exemplify purity of soul and body." The Virginity Club, or V Club, evolves as a resume-friendly way for students to proclaim their "purity." Although the alternating perspectives--four in all--prevent character from gaining much depth, they do allow Brian, author of The Princess & the Pauper (2002), to represent the full range of teens' attitudes about sex and levels of sexual experience. In the end, though, the focus is more on the shifting dynamics among the friends than anything else; when intimate situations occur, Brian keeps things strictly PG-13. Problems resolve tidily and purposefully by story's end, with lessons about self-respect, honesty among friends, and frequently unpredictable ramifications of sexual decisions nicely absorbed.
