their way in the tough times of getting into the school of their choice.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.

I kept hiding the title.This book is about 4 girls who are best friends who also are competing against each other for a scholarship where you have to be the most "pure" to win. Everyone thinks that means being a virgin. Fortunately there are no invasive gyno exams here and you don't have to be gearing for a nunnery, just a purity essay, but still. How old fashioned.The girls (who are not all virgins) create a "virginity club" to enhance their chances at winning the scholarship. One of my favorite scenes in the book was when they went to a nursing home to volunteer and told the elderly what the club was about. I loved the elderly's reactions because I could totally picture some of my former residents doing that.I also liked when one of the girls (I believe it was Kai?) dropped out of the scholarship because she said that the whole idea was stupid and that it was pitting her friends against each other. I thought that was extremely brave of her. I was rooting for Eva throughout the whole book because I thought she most deserved the scholarship, but my idea of Kai changed a lot after that scene.I could relate to all the girls in their own ways. I also really liked Riley because he seemed to be a very adorable guy and while I was reading I couldn't wait to see how he tied into the end of the story.Even though there was a lot I liked, I didn't like the plot in general. The whole theme did not sit well with me, in that that would be a scholarship requirement. However, I do think that the author handled such an awkward topic with grace and ease, and for that, the read was enjoyable.8 of 8 people found the following review helpful. the virginity club, WDM IowaBy valerieI read the book The Virginity Club by Kate Brian. This book was full of drama and was very easy to relate to. The story has 4 main characters, Eva, Kai, Mandy and Debbie. All four girls are best friends who come from four completely different families. Being their senior year all of the girls are getting ready to graduate but before the big day there is something left to do, and that is to win the Treemont scholarship offering a free pass to any college of their choice. But there is one requirement that seems to throw everyone off: "Purity of the soul and body." Mandy decides that starting the Virginity club, a social service club offering support, would be a great idea for everyone who was participating in the scholarship. But all of the girls promising to keep their virginity until the big day is another story since Kai, Mandy, Eva and Debbie all have a secret of their won. You will see as lies unfold, friendships change, and who gets the scholarship.I read this book because the subject sounded like something that I could relate to, being in high school like the girls. Once I began reading the book and I got to know each of the characters, it was hard for me to put the book down because I got so caught up in their drama and their lives. While reading the book I came to like certain characters more then others. My favorite character was Mandy because she reminded me of myself. She was very whole hearted and caring. I didn't seem to like Debbie because of the way she acted around others. She seemed very fake and people pleasing. Overall the book was very suspenseful and fun to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about high school drama and doesn't mind reading about topics like virginity. When Victoria A. Treemont, the most revered and reclusive woman in Ardsmore, Pennsylvania, passes away, she leaves behind a $160,000 scholarship fund that rocks the worlds of the students at Ardsmore High School. The successful candidate must "exemplify purity of soul, spirit, and body." Everyone agrees that this caveat can mean only one thing: The recipient of the scholarship must still be holding on to the big V. Welcome to the V Club -- where members embrace abstinence, get off on civic duties, and heat up their chances to clinch the Treemont scholarship. What better way to prove purity than to pledge allegiance to the virginity flag? Besides, chastity belts are sooo 1300s. Kai, Mandy, Debbie, and Eva have put their futures on the line. But will their deepest insecurities and darkest secrets ruin their chances at the scholarship, or worse, their relationships? Or will they discover the true meaning behind Mrs. Treemont's famous last words?
