About this deal

Confessions of An Alleged Good Girl is an utterly incredible, coming of age YA that brilliantly explores body and sex positivity, the toxic views on sex and sex education and through Monique and her experiences, raise awareness of of vaginismus. So, Monique resolves to “come up with some solutions” to get him back, beginning with booking an appointment to see if her lady parts are normal. There’s a villain 180 that will give you whiplash, but other than that, the natural ending is quite clear (for anyone who’s ever seen or read a teen love triangle romance, anyway) and it rolls up right on time. Monique initially receives help from two unlikely sources, goody-two-shoes Sasha from church, and bad boy Reggie - neither turn out to be what they seem.

Through Sasha, we understand just how beautiful and loving religion can be, rather than Monique’s view towards it as a consequence of growing up as the pastor’s daughter. I also wish the author had mentioned that sex isn't even necessary as part of a teen's coming of age.

Literally everything about Confessions of an Alleged Good Girl feels natural and I'm so happy about it. I do want to say upfront this is told in the first person point of view, I know some readers hate that style, but it never bothers me. In high school, she challenged herself with to-do lists full of risk-taking items like 'hug a random boy' and 'eat a cricket', which inspired her debut novel, Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry .

After reading “excuse me while I ugly cry” I was so excited to read your second debut and I was not disappointed. But yet, this was entirely different as Goffney emphasises that the pressure to abstain from sex comes from the church.

And acknowledged that you can be wrong regardless of how old you are and it’s never too late to make amends. I knew about vaginismus before, but I had no idea vaginal dilators were a thing, so I learned something new. She's torn between her parents who want the pure virginal daughter, and her boyfriend, Dom, who wants to explore the more intimate.
