Praise for Restless Virgins, the Movie
“The real star, if that’s the right word, is the culture of casual sex and misogyny at the school, where the sense of entitlement, especially among male students from rich and powerful families, is suffocating and dismaying.” — The New York Times
“An unexpectedly compelling look at the caste system, cruelty and casual sex at a privileged prep school.” — Variety
About the Book: Restless Virgins is the riveting real-life story of the intimate lives of seven teenagers. Set at a prep school near Boston, Massachusetts, the book takes place during the year of a widely publicized sex scandal. But it’s not just about a scandal; it’s a compassionate, honest portrait of the lives of today’s girls and boys. A work of narrative nonfiction, Restless Virgins reveals the changing landscape of teenage sexuality.
Restless Virgins is about fitting in, taking risks, hooking up, and breaking up. About best friends and parents, settling and survival, and always the search for love. Everything that happens here is true.
