Jersey Angel

By: Beth Ann Bauman

BOOK TALK

Angel Cassonetti  is beautiful, seventeen, and confident.   Joey, her boyfriend, longs for a more serious relationship, but Angel seems content with just casual sex.   Sexual banter with her best friend’s guy leads to sexual encounters, and Angel loses count trying to list her sexual trysts .  Her best friend, Inggy, tries to convince her that sex is a big deal, and when one of their circle of friends ends up pregnant, Angel is forced to re- examine her beliefs.  This mature read will fly off the shelves in all public libraries.

Prepared by Pat Strawn, Librarian, John Jay High School, San Antonio, Texas
