Publisher Description

Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time-the kind Mercedes never had herself.

Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy - so far. Her mother isn't home nearly enough to know about Mercedes' extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won't even say the word "sex" until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn't bank on Angela's boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn - or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.

When Mercedes' perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her own reputation -and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, Laurie Elizabeth Flynn's Firsts is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up.

Such a good book

I loved this book. Mercedes is one of those characters in books I can relate to and understand. I LOVE how the author crafted the story. You could tell so many details were made and they all just fit together so perfectly.

It's one of those books you won't be disappointed by. I'm really glad a book like this was made.

5 Star Book

I absolutely love this book. Can there be a part two to this book ? I want to know what happens with Mercy and Zach in the future life. Recommend this book to teenagers who made pretty big mistakes in their life.
