Title: Not That Kind of Girl

Author: Siobhan Vivian

KDL Description:

TEEN VIVIAN

Natalie is a straight-laced and ambitious senior and class president hopeful who has never had the time or patience for boys, parties, football games, or fun. That all changes when Natalie meets the rebellious and daring freshman Spencer, falls into an unexpected relationship with a popular jock, and realizes that her best friend is slipping away. Now Natalie is forced to reconsider her rigid views on sex, love, friendship, and life.

Amazon Description:

Natalie Sterling wants to be in control. She wants her friends to be loyal. She wants her classmates to elect her student council president. She wants to find the right guy, not the usual jerk her school has to offer. She wants a good reputation, because she believes that will lead to good things.

But life is messy, and it’s very hard to be in control of it. Not when there are freshman girls running around in a pack, trying to get senior guys to sleep with them. Not when your friends have secrets they’re no longer comfortable sharing. Not when the boy you once dismissed ends up being the boy you wants to sleep with yourself – but only in secret, with nobody ever finding out.

Slut or saint? Winner or loser? Natalie is getting tired of these forced choices – and is now going to find a way to live life in the sometimes messy, sometimes wonderful in-between.
