Ten top books about losing one's virginity

At the Daily Express, Radhika Sanghani recommended ten top books about losing one's virginity, including:

This novel tells the story of a boarding school and what happens when a young, sexy girl arrives.

All the boys assume she's had sex because of her provocative clothing and independence. She hasn't.

It's a lesson in appearances versus reality, and brings up the idea of slut-shaming.

But Aviva does eventually lose her virginity to Seung - but tragedy isn't far away.

The novel shows just how scary sexuality is to teens who are trying to figure out sex, combined with parental pressures.

A must-read for anyone who went to a boarding school.
Read about another entry on the list.

Writers Read: Pamela Erens (March 2008).
