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.
"Memorable characters for the win."
"Like Sex and the City meets American Pie with Judy Blume Sprinkles on top. I loved it."
"I'm going to say that Ms. Rosin, in my humble opinion, is the Judy Blume (think Forever) of today."
"This is one of the very few books that I finished reading and wanted to start all over again!"
"Cherry captured my heart from the start and didn't give it back."
"Super positive, super empowering, super honest and lovely read. I loved it."
“If American Pie was gender-flipped, you’d get Cherry by Lindsey Rosin.” – BUSTLE
“Funny, sex-positive, sometimes awkward as hell journey of self-discovery.” – BARNES & NOBLE
“The romance is adorable and it has multiple on-page sex scenes between girls and even that elusive discussion about what constitutes sex between girls.” – LGBTQREADS
“Overall, Cherry was an amazing debut that handles a hard issue perfectly. I felt like everything about it was real and honest–the sex, the friendships, the scariness but inevitable fact of the future. I believe everyone, especially teen girls, should read this book. I don’t know how many ways I can say this, so I’ll just lay it out straight: BUY THIS BOOK!” – Fieryreads
