So what's a girl to do when she's raising two lovely children, working two part-time jobs and knee-deep in volunteer work? Well, I'll tell you what I did - I wrote a novel. It was the last thing I had time to do, but the characters just wouldn't leave me alone, you know? So I thought about them wherever I went..and when I went to bed at night...and when I woke up in the morning. In between I scratched out words on any scrap of paper I could get my hands on. And then, when I found myself with a blessed hour or two of uninterrupted time at the computer, I typed it out, bit by bit. And when I finally finished...some new characters had already started playing in my head, so I wrote another one, and so on and so on and so on...
Jennifer Whitney was the last American virgin. At least that's what she felt like in 1986 as she began her sophomore year at Central Illinois University. She was proud of her decision to wait for the right guy, and yet she was getting restless.
It seemed like everyone around her was doing it... and having fun doing it, too. She didn't want to become the campus slut or anything, but surely there was a difference between a trashy skank and a nice girl with a little experience. Perhaps it was time to stop relying on fate to guide her and instead take matters into her own hands.
And with that realization, Jen decided to find “the one” and lose her virginity, although not necessarily in that order...
Nicki Elson has created a heroine that everyone will cheer for as she comes of age in the mid-1980s. Whether you lived through the decade and survived the bad hair and acid-wash jeans, or just heard the wild stories, readers of all ages will identify with Jen Whitney as she searches for “the one,” enjoying her romantic ups and downs, made even more entertaining by Nicki Elson's amusingly wry sense of humor.
My advice? Rush to the store to buy this book, but then slow down as you savor it. -Syrah at Chick Lit & Wine
