In this honest, frank, and funny debut novel, four best friends make a pact during their senior year of high school to lose their virginities--and end up finding friendship, love, and self-discovery along the way.

To be honest, the sex pact wasn't always part of the plan.

Layla started it. She announced it super casually to the rest of the girls between bites of frozen yogurt, as if it was just simply another addition to her massive, ever-evolving To Do List. She is determined to have sex for the first time before the end of high school. Initially, the rest of the crew is scandalized, but, once they all admit to wanting to lose their v-cards too, they embark on a quest to do the deed together... separately.

Layla's got it in the bag. Her serious boyfriend, Logan, has been asking for months.

Alex has already done it. Or so she says.

Emma doesn't know what the fuss is all about, but sure, she'll give it a shot.

And Zoe, well, Zoe can't even say the o word without bursting into giggles.

Will everything go according to plan? Probably not. But at least the girls have each other every hilarious, heart-warming, cringe-inducing step of the way.

From debut author Lindsey Rosin, Cherry is a coming-of-age, laugh-out-loud tale of first times, last chances, and the enduring friendships that make it all worthwhile.

Ever see "American Pie"? This is an all-girl retelling. Four girls make a pact to loose their virginity before graduation, and one of the girls realizes that the guy she's pursuing may not be who she wants. Maybe the cute new girl friend she met is.

This is an uncensored YA that will ring true for so many teen girls coming to terms with their sexuality. Rosin describes sex and all the potential emotions that surround it in an honest way which makes it not only relatable, but also less glorified, despite it being the entire focus of the book. I found myself rolling my eyes at certain parts of the book, but then also wishing I'd had it to read when I was 17. This book made me feel both young and old at the same time.
