Review: Purity By Jackson Pearce

This book I ended up buying after standing in Books a Million for about 30 minutes trying to find something else to buy. That I didn't have. To make the $25.00 minimum for my coupon. I really didn't feel like reading this book because of the content. But, after standing around going up and down the isles I needed to just grab something.  Well I am happy to report that this is now one of my fav. books of 2012!  I loved it. It was so funny at times. (check out my Facebook for shares as I posted a ton of them)  I already have all of Jackson Pearce's (or JP as I have been calling her) books some in both print and ebook (as you wish if one of those and so is fathomless) So since I loved this book so much I am going to do a giveaway!  
My Review: 5 Stars
I purchased this book via Books a Million with my own money lol.

Book Description

April 24, 2012
A novel about love, loss, and sex -- but not necessarily in that order.

Before her mother died, Shelby promised three things: to listen to her father, to love as much as possible, and to live without restraint. Those Promises become harder to keep when Shelby's father joins the planning committee for the Princess Ball, an annual dance that ends with a ceremonial vow to live pure lives -- in other words, no "bad behavior," no breaking the rules, and definitely no sex.

Torn between Promises One and Three, Shelby makes a decision -- to exploit a loophole and lose her virginity before taking the vow. But somewhere between failed hookup attempts and helping her dad plan the ball, Shelby starts to understand what her mother really meant, what her father really needs, and who really has the right to her purity.

Product Details


Jackson Pearce lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with a slightly cross-eyed cat and a lot of secondhand furniture. She recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in English and a minor in Philosophy. She auditioned for the circus once, but didn't make it; other jobs she's had include obituaries writer, biker bar waitress, and receptionist. In addition, Jackson coaches both colorguard and winterguard at a local high school.

Jackson began writing when she got angry that the school librarian couldn't tell her of a book that contained a smart girl, horses, baby animals, and magic. Her solution was to write the book herself when she was twelve. Her parents thought it was cute at first, but have grown steadily more concerned for her ever since. Visit Jackson online at


Ah, I'm very intrigued by the premise! It sounds like it would be very funny, too. Thanks for the cool review :)
