V is for Virgin - Kelly Oram

So far, it's exactly what I was expecting it to be. Slightly juvenile voice, but still entertaining nonetheless. It's a little interesting to see how horrified everyone is that Valerie is a virgin and plans to stay that way. Maybe it's because I know so many other Mormons, but it's not really that big of a deal where I come from. So it seems a little...unrealistic, I guess. At least from my end.


And there's been some grammatical problems. Ugh, now we have "lets" when it should have been "let's"! Why can't I win?!
