You only get one first time . . .

From driving tests to relationships, Valentina Bell thinks she’s a failure, with a big fat capital F. At this rate, she’s certain she’ll be a virgin for ever. So Lena’s friends plan Operation: Popping the Cherry to help her find the perfect man first time.

Yet somehow disastrous dates with bad-boy musicians and fabulous evenings with secretly in-the-closet guys aren’t quite working out how Lena planned.

Soon Lena’s avoiding Operation: Popping the Cherry to spend time with comforting, aloof Jake, her best friend’s older brother, who doesn’t make her feel self-conscious about still clinging to her V card. But could Jake show Lena that sometimes what you’re looking for most is right by your side?

A FOREVER for the twenty-first century.

My Review:

Popping the Cherry was a humorous and fun read. I felt that I really got to know the characters really well and it was a page-turner! I couldn't put it down, especially in those scenes with Valentina (Lena) and Jake. Aside from that, I felt that the book was very well-written and developed. 

The subject of losing her virginity becomes the center attention when Lena's friends come up with Operation: Popping the Cherry, which lists candidates that she could potentially lose her v-card to without any attachments. Lena has always felt left out when everyone else seem to be ahead of her and it becomes her mission to lose her virginity no matter what. But the more she starts to get involve with other guys, she realizes that she has a major crush on Jake, her best-friend's older brother. The more time they spend together, the closer they get. It wasn't always that way, but with Operation: Popping the Cherry in the way, it makes it harder for her to accept her feelings for Jake without hurting her best-friend in the process. 

After a series of unfortunate events, Valentina realizes that it doesn't matter what other people think or do, it's what she does for herself that makes a difference. This was also the message that I got after finishing reading the book. It's important to not rush in to things that one is not ready for and to do things for ourselves rather than for what other people might think it's right. Overall, this coming-of-age story truly became one of my favorites that I will recommend everyone else to read it.
