Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- Among the many issues that start to crop up as one enters the teenage and young adult phase is that of virginity. The decision of losing one’s virginity or keeping it for as long as possible is one that everyone faces while growing up and it is this exact turmoil that the main character of the latest romantic suspense novel, The Last Virgin Alive is facing. This freshly released book is the debut novel of writer Stephanie Crosby who has penned this title for teenage readers.
As can be understood from the title, The Last Virgin Alive is the story of Symphony, a plain Jane kind of girl who feels like an outcast during her first year at college as she deals with low self-esteem issues which crop up from her being a virgin. The story is narrated to readers in a diary form and is very connectable as Symphony goes though the issues in her family and life at college much like numerous others across the world do.
Symphony’s struggle of feeling like an awkward teenager in hand-me-down clothes, with anxious eyes, bad hair, living in a ‘complicated’ family with a bitch of a sister, is a phase that most young girls go through. She starts to believe that it would be better to call it quits, get a cat and become a spinster at 17 until she meets dreamboat Adam who she hopes is ‘The One’ who will help her get rid of her virginity. The Last Virgin Alive is now available online in the Nook Book (eBook) format for a price of $2.99 at BarnesandNoble.com
Author Stephanie Crosby takes her inspiration from the works of Eager Alan Poe and enjoys using her life experiences of love, ex-friends, ex-boyfriends and crushes to create stories that readers can connect with. She feels that feels she might as well take advantage of her bittersweet experiences and heartaches and convert them into beautiful stories and books.
