“The Second Virginity of Suzy Green” Review

on May 20, 2013


“Suzy Green used to be one of the coolest nonconformist “almost-Goth” party girls in school. That was before her older sister Rosie died and her family moved state. Not even her best friend would recognize her now. Gone are the Doc Martens and the attitude. All she wants is to be like Rosie – perfect. The new Suzy Green makes straight A’s, hangs with the in-crowd at her new school, and dates the hottest guy around. And since all her new friends belong to a virginity club, she joins, too. So what if she’s not technically qualified? Nobody in town knows…until Ryan, Suzy’s ex, turns up. As the past and present collide, Suzy struggles to find her own place in a world without her sister.”


Why shouldn’t we lie ? Because the truth is bound to show up in the form of your ex-boyfriend and make you feel a tad uncomfortable. Well that’s what happened the Suzy, at least.
Seriously, everybody lies. Small lies, big lies, medium-sized lies. Lying isn’t the problem, but getting caught is and this story is somewhat of a cautionary tale in a very entertaining way. I thought this story was incredibly funny.
Not only is Suzy’s point of view hilarious, but Maddie, Suzy’s best friend who knows her rebel past adds to the comic situation as well.
But best of all : Ryan.Thank God, Ryan was there ! Not only is he incredibly sweet, but he is also full of insight, honesty and is totally unpretentious. Guy, Suzi’s official crush, isn’t mean, just a tad boring.
I thought the story’s presmisses were interesting and realistic as well. The idea that the death of a sibling can bring on the desire to change radically one’s personality is perfectly plausible, and coherent. It was a solid foundation to a solid novel.
Which is why I gave this story :
3.5 stars
