Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Sophie Brookover
Marit, one of just two remaining virgins in the senior class of her swanky Connecticut private high school, convinces the other virgin, her best friend, Jamie, to become friends with benefits. The arrangement seems perfect at first: Both will shed their unwanted virginity, gain some sexual sophistication, and no one's feelings will be hurt because they are not a couple so they can never break up. Of course, things do not work out quite as planned. Unbeknownst to Marit, Jamie has been in love with her for ages, and unbeknownst to Jamie, Marit has continued to carry a torch for the handsome new guy, Noah. It is a recipe for friendship-on the rocks. As light and fizzy as its title suggests, this book is very appealing, and it is not as wholly insubstantial as it sounds. Redeeming features include Wallington's deft hand with pacing and dialogue and Marit's believable blend of sassy self-consciousness. It comes as no surprise given the author's experience on the television shows Veronica Mars and Sex and the City, both of which feature strongly the love lives of likeable, flawed heroines. It is also nice to see the emotional fallout of supposedly casual sex through a vulnerable, heartsick boy's eyes. Ultimately, although this purchase is far from essential, it will slake the thirst of most diehard light-read addicts.
School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up
All Marit really wants for her senior year is romance and a boyfriend to take to the prom. But there's something to get out of the way first: she wants to have sex so she can lose the "V" word, but clams up whenever things get serious physically. After crumbling on a date with Noah, a gorgeous new guy in her class, she decides that her best friend, Jamie, is just the guy to get over her fears with. Unfortunately, they discover too late that he can't just be friends after having sex, and Marit risks losing both Noah and Jamie. The narration is laugh-out-loud funny as Wallington, a writer for television shows Veronica Mars and Sex in the City , captures the agony of dates gone wrong. But while the story seems to be all about the changes in Marit's life, she actually grows very little, and there are few consequences to her actions: despite hurting her friends, she wins them back, and the book ends with a hint that she might even get the guy. The author stresses the importance of safe sex and provides sage advice on friendship from the voice of a pregnant high school senior. This character shines as the deepest and provides a subtle reminder of what the real consequences of sex can be. Recommended for libraries in which Cecily von Ziegesar's "Gossip Girl" and Zoey Dean's "A-List" series (both Little, Brown) are popular.

    Reviewed by Karin Perry for TeensReadToo.com

    Marit can't hold onto a boyfriend. Every time the relationship gets physical she freaks out and either scares the boy away or breaks up with him herself. She is afraid of having sex for the first time and obsesses about it. Besides the "no boyfriend" problem on the first day of school, she also has to deal with the fact that her schedule is terrible. I mean, who should have second period lunch? Eating lunch at 9:00 a.m. should definitely be against the law! So far the only bright spots in her day are her constant friends Jamie and Caroline. Basically inseparable, these three spend their day mocking the "followers" and "joiners" of the school. <BR/><BR/>Marit has accepted a senior year without a boyfriend until a new boy walks into her German class and steals her heart. She just knows that Noah will be her boyfriend for the year. She makes a bold move and invites him to a school bonfire. Noah accepts and Marit is hopeful it will be a successful date. Once at the bonfire, the couple realizes they can't talk with all the noise and find a quiet spot to be alone. Eventually, they begin to kiss, and Marit's nerves cause her to do something to embarrass herself and she ends up running away from the situation instead of talking to Noah about it. <BR/><BR/>Determined to fix her problem, she goes to her older sister for advice. Hilly tells Marit she needs to find someone she already knows and feels comfortable with to have sex with for the first time. Once she has done "it," she won't be so nervous about it. The perfect candidate is Jamie, her loyal friend of eight years. At first Jamie doesn't think it is a very good idea, but soon changes his mind. <BR/><BR/>Aury Wallington writes a realistic story that involves typical high school drama while at the same time creating characters that are likable. Even though sex is the main focus of Marit's life, she remains a character that the readers will root for in the end. The author also buries a lesson in the pages of the story; one that we can never hear enough--friendship is more important than anything else. POP! is an enjoyable read, even though the ending is a little too convenient and quickly resolved.
