Mara Valentine is an amazing character who changes and matures a lot during this book. This is a great story, especially for younger readers who enjoy romantic comedy.

Myself being a vegan....I ran across this book, Vegan Virgin Valentine, every time I did a vegan book search. So one day I said what the heck and bought the book. I am not disappointed! It's about Mara Valentine who is an overachieving straight A high school senior who is a vegan. She dreams about cheese every night. She has already been accepted to Yale and is taking college courses on top of her high school work. Her main goal is to be valedictorian at her graduation. Then things start to fall apart. Enter V Valentine, Mara's 16 year old niece. V moves in with the Valentines while her own mother is out wandering the globe looking for.....something. V is the polar opposite of Mara. She's a slut, a stoner and she gets bad grades. And to top it all off...she doesn't do any extracurricular activities. So it pretty much goes without saying that Mara and V are at each others throats from the get go. Partway through the book they start to rub off on each other. Mara falls in love with her 22 year old boss who owns the coffee shop she works at, drops some of her college courses she was planning on taking in the summer and she realizes that there is more to life than being valedictorian. V gets the starring role in the school musical, quits smoking cigarettes and gives some serious thought to college. Vegan Virgin Valentine is about being comfortable in your own skin and doing what feels right for you and only you. Mara learns to let go and loosen up, realizing on the way that being successful is relative. This is teen lit and it did get a little sappy in parts, a little too sweet but I really enjoyed reading this novel from Carolyn Mackler. Now I'll have to go pick up the sequel

Vegan Virgin Valentine is a super book about a high school senior, Mara, who has only a few months left before she is off to Yale and graduates high school. But she really learns in that time to make her own path and to let loose once in a while, and that is due to her niece V. I love how Mara is a vegan, but she secretly dreams of griled cheese sandwiches. Those dreams and the ones she has of her boss are the funniest ones she has. This is a perfect book for anyone and it really has a good message of learning to let loose once in a while and chart your own path.

In Vegan Virgin Valentine, Carolyn Mackler perfectly describes the issues of a modern day teenager. It's difficult to put down with the constant tension that's built throughout the book. Using youthful writing, Mackler creates a practical and realistic protagonist. Mara Valentine only has a few months to overcome several new obstacles. Mara is an overachieving, straight A senior. With Yale right around the corner, she starts making decisions for herself. Throughout this book, Mara discovers many things about her family, romance, and herself. She decides to get over it and get a life. Although this is an interesting book, it's not full of excitement. At points the narrator can drag on, but it's well worth finishing. I'd highly recommend Vegan Virgin Valentine to high school girls countrywide; whether uptight and nerdy or just living life. On a scale of one to ten, this book is a solid nine.

This is a really great book. Mara Valentine is an overachiever who learns how to roll with the punches and live life without stressing over absolutely everything. She is a straight A student and competing with her womanizing ex-boyfriend Travis Hart for Valedictorian. With her 16 year old Niece V home she has just one more struggle to go through. i loved this book, Mara reminds me a lot about myself.

This book is sooo good. I was able to finish in two days, I couldn't put it down! It's about Mara Valentine who is a serious strait- A student. During the second half of her senior year her niece, V comes to live with her and her parents while her mother goes to Costa Rica (there were no English speaking schools). V and Mara have completely opposite personalities. Mara is goody-goody all around involved model student, while V is an outspoken, more of a loose cannon. Throughout the story they both take certain qualities from each other. Mara learns to let loose, not concentrate so much on grades and even fall in love with her boss James and learns that though grades are important they can't be your whole life and to enjoy herself. V learns that she can't be constantly with guys and has to take on some responsibility. Though they were quick to judge one another for their differences they really learn that they could learn from one another. Vegan Virgin Valentine is a really good story about letting go and it's funny too. I also like the aspect of Mara and James's relationship. I think all kinds of people will enjoy this funny but at times insightful book.

This book was the best book i have ever read. I loved it in the beginning it was great it caught my attention I have never had a book suck me in so much in my life. If you like books about what is going in high school this are the book for you. It's about a girl who her niece comes to live with her and she starts to cause problems. In the end she becomes closer to her niece and she wants to spend time with her and she doesn't go to college in the summer she stays and spends the summer with her niece.

I'll get straight to the point: this book was awesome! From chapter one, I was hooked. It's funny, romantic, and just a great teen read. The characters and situations are realistic, too. I read this book when I was 13, but I didn't think it was inappropriate at all. Sure, it had its sappy parts, but if you're mature, you can handle it! :)
