  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page 
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) 
  • Share the title and author, too, so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Purity by Jackson Pearce
April 24, 2012
Little, Brown BFYR
Young Adult | Contemporary

A novel about love, loss, and sex -- but not necessarily in that order.

Before her mother died, Shelby promised three things: to listen to her father, to love as much as possible, and to live without restraint. Those Promises become harder to keep when Shelby's father joins the planning committee for the Princess Ball, an annual dance that ends with a ceremonial vow to live pure lives -- in other words, no "bad behavior," no breaking the rules, and definitely no sex.

Torn between Promises One and Three, Shelby makes a decision -- to exploit a loophole and lose her virginity before taking the vow. But somewhere between failed hookup attempts and helping her dad plan the ball, Shelby starts to understand what her mother really meant, what her father really needs, and who really has the right to her purity.

"It's like guys have some sort of irreversible programming when they see them. 'Ah! Lace bra and panties! Allow me to sex you up, please!'" [Ruby] proclaims in a robot voice. 

p. 53, hardcover. Purity is out today, so go buy it!
