Overview

Charlie is down to her absolute. Total. Last. Resort.

Despite a thoroughly comprehensive list of potential cherry poppers, er…suitors, and careful plotting, Charlie is three weeks into her devirginization campaign, still untouched, and getting desperate. In the movie of her life, this aspiring screenwriter is giving herself a PG, for please, get some.

Her project goes into freeze frame when her mom checks herself into rehab and packs Charlie off to live with her estranged, or just plain strange, grandfather, Monty. How is she supposed to get a date when she has to go pick up his Depends?

Enter Eric, a hot rehab grad on the road to redemption, and the only one who can make Charlie rethink her strategy. The more she gets to know him, the more convinced she becomes that is the one, and not just another to add to the list of people who will abandon her.

In this hilarious and heartbreaking story of one girl's detoured road to womanhood, Charlie's list develops a life of its own – right when she realizes there's so much more to lose.

Reviews

"A cast of wonderful and wacky supporting characters, coupled with Charlie's biting and humorous voice keeps the story laugh-out-loud funny while not diminishing the greater issues at play." -RT Book Review

I was lucky enough to read an early copy of this book, and I loved the spunky narrator and quick-witted writing. I'll be looking forward to whatever Tewes comes out with next!

Seventeen-year-old Charlie has a plan. Her internet research shows that she should have been deflowered by now, so she sets out to right that wrong. With the aid of preacher’s daughter and best friend Rachel Dunmore, she develops a list of potential suitors whose duty is to help her to exit the ranks of the chaste. But when dreamy Eric enters the story, Charlie wonders if she needs a better plan. If you like Stephanie Plum, you’ll love Charlotte Webb! Yes, that’s Charlie’s full name, which she hates, because in her words, being named after a gross little spider that ends up kicking the bucket was just plain mean. Judith Tewes writes like Janet Evanovich — sharp, captivating, and hilarious. Every page drew me in and left me laughing out loud.  Charlie’s real problems begin when her mother commits herself to rehab because she can’t handle the death of Charlie’s father. So Charlie is forced to move in with Monty and his overweight beagle. Monty is her grandfather, who has openly ignored her and her mother for years. Their verbal sparring is side-splittingly funny, and they quickly bond because they enjoy harassing each other.  As their relationship blossoms, Charlie learns that Monty is suffering from dementia and may be dangerous to himself and his portly pup. Watching Charlie grow as the adults around her fall apart is both comical and heartwarming. Tewes takes a very delicate teen situation and handles it flawlessly. If you like witty dialogue, a compelling feeling of family, and a very satisfying ending, My Soon-To-Be Sex Life definitely delivers.
