Forever by Judy Blume
You can read the review I already posted, but I will reiterate here that this book was very frank and I think most teenagers should read it.
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger
This book talked about how people can be shamed for being "sluts" when they actually just like sex. Or on the flip side, people being shamed (or feel shame) for not having sex yet. Boys who pressured their girlfriends, girls who bullied girls for being sluts or virgins and the great message is that sex is between you and your partner. You ROCK, Keplinger!
Looking For Alaska by John Green
I won't go into details (spoilers!) but there is a really AWKWARD sexual scene. But it kind of shows that if you do that with someone you don't care about, then you end up not enjoying it.
Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen
I like the dual stories. There's a best friend who slept with her boyfriend and she ended up pregnant and then a girl with a boyfriend who keeps pressuring her for sex (when she's seen the first hand the consequences of unprotected sex).
The Boy Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
This is a great story of having sex with someone you love. The characters buy condoms, they deal with the pressures of judgmental assholes, and try to find themselves in the midst of everything else in their lives. (And I already wrote a review of it.)
If you guys have any other suggestions (because there are a ton more) then just leave them down in the comments!
P.S. My grandparents are coming into town so I might not be posting much. But I will try my hardest to keep updating!
