The peer pressures that exist in the adolescent world today make it difficult for young teens to make good choices without giving in to the pressures from friends, classmates, parents and from what they see in the media. The Virginity Club (2004), written by Kate Brian, is a compelling story about four teenage girls who experience a variety of pressures from parents and piers and are faced with the issue of having to define how they exemplify purity in their lives in an effort to obtain a substantial scholarship to the college of their choice. Along with this dilemma, all four girls are faced with problems in their personal lives. After many difficult times and keeping secrets from one another, they come to the realization that friends are important to help one another through situations that seem hopeless.
