Description

For those who grew up on Judy Blume--and graduated to Lena Dunham--a "hilarious"* debut... "Bridget Jones and Carrie Bradshaw, meet your wisecracking, vagina obsessed match. Sanghani's debut is a hilarious, irreverent look at smart-alecky, painfully self-concious, 21-year-old Ellie's relentless mission to rectify a disasterous first attempt at performing oral sex, get deflowered, find the perfect Brazilian wax, avoid her tradition-bound Greek mother's nagging, graduate summa cum laude, be a writer, and fit in...This story for millennials is a wonderful blend of modern agnst with old-fashioned sweetness."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Even Bridget Jones's Diary could take a page from this novel."--*Joan Rivers


Okay, I admit it...I didn't do it.
Yet.
This is normal, right? I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they've already done it doesn't mean that they're telling the truth...right?
It's not like I'm asking for that much. I don't need the perfect guy. I don't need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don't even need a real bed.
The guys I know complain that girls are always looking for Mr. Right--do I have to wear a sign that says I'm only looking for Mr. Right Now?
Sooooo...anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?
I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another I am going to make this happen.
Hey, what have I got to lose? Besides the obvious.
