Description

I loved the writing an thought that Goffney really captures the Black Baptist church in all it's glory, warts and all. And I think it’s so important as I truly believe forgiveness and love are two core principles of Christianity.

Safe spaces composed predominantly of Black women, discussions regarding sexual health education's importance, and tender, healthy depictions of romance that exhibit respect for personal boundaries populate this sex-positive read, a compassionate novel that encourages teens to prioritize the control, safety, and comfort of their own bodies. I hope more than anything that any girl who has or is experiencing vaginismus feels seen and heard and valued. The emphasis on being a ‘good girl’ and obeying rules is instilled into her from a young age and we witness the detrimental effect it had on her growing up. I loved Sasha as a character and it surprises me every time how Goffney can create such beautiful, loving and supportive side characters that are instrumental to the protagonist finding themselves.Mateo’s self-awareness and inner monologue at times make him seem older than 16, and, with significant turmoil in the main plot, some side elements feel underdeveloped. She’s torn between her parents who want the pure virginal daughter, and her boyfriend, Dom, who wants to explore the more intimate side of their relationship. Seventeen-year-old Charlie Davis, a white girl living on the margins, thinks she has little reason to live: her father drowned himself; her bereft and abusive mother kicked her out; her best friend, Ellis, is nearly brain dead after cutting too deeply; and she's gone through unspeakable experiences living on the street. I loved when they went to that teen club, because I got to see a glimpse of all three of them in their element. Monique's] journey toward recognizing her own value is hard-won, and her awareness of her own worth, when it comes, feels like a true victory.

Her stories are always super informative, I think this book is extremely important for young teens to learn about sex and more importantly, WAIT TO HAVE SEX. like this is something i look for in a ya book, something with plot and something that makes you feel. There is mention of religion as it is a part of the storyline but it is well written and very relevant, especially as the main character Monique is the preacher’s daughter so thinking of having sex is a no no especially before marriage! I knew about vaginismus before, but I had no idea vaginal dilators were a thing, so I learned something new. The book managed to be light and fun, while also taking on some heavier and serious topics but the two were balanced really well.Through Sasha, we understand just how beautiful and loving religion can be, rather than Monique’s view towards it as a consequence of growing up as the pastor’s daughter.
