Recensione

"Literally one of the most unique novels I have ever read. It was intense, romantic, dangerous and touching. A coming of story novel that will knock you sideways" ~ Benjamin Alderson from Benjaminoftomes

"The V Girl is about changing your own destiny, fighting for your rights, falling in love in such desperate times and what it means to be human. It's dark, unique and addictive. I demand more, Mya!" ~ Inthelandofgodsandmonsters.tumblr.com

"The V Girl by Mya Robarts is a riveting debut that explores a unique and at times difficult concept in an entertaining and fast paced read that will tug at your emotions and leave you wanting the next chapter as soon as possible." ~ Rachel @ The Rest Is Still Unwritten

"Robarts did a phenomenal job with The V Girl, as I have never been so desperate to keep reading something that made me feel so many variations of discomfort, rage and, most uncomfortable to admit, desire." ~ danireviewsthings.com

"The relationships between Lila and her friends, family and Aleksey are well sketched, and often extremely moving. Her sexual awakening is also very lovingly done, with the choice of when, where and who with, so explicitly hers - despite the rape culture she lives within - that it made me want to cheer." ~ wonderlandjen

"I found all of the characters to be quite well developed, and Lila was both complex and entertaining. The story is compelling, even though there are scenes that had me cringing, and quite a few surprises along the way." ~ Kitty Smith

"Mya Robarts has written a dark and riveting story. It is a true page turner as the characters and story are so well-written you will find yourself lost in this world she has created. The story-line is very different from the normal dystopian future novels." ~ Sarah Elle

"I could not put this book down. I read it without taking a break, staying up too late to finish it. It was an engrossing, original and at times, heart breaking story." ~ Justirishgirl

"I firmly believe that the Discussion Questions at the end of the book should be asked in every high school in the US. They have the potential to open the door for some amazing personal inventory. I applauded the truth bombs dropped throughout the book about a female's value being more than the condition of her hymen." ~ seejennyread.com

"This book will make you laugh, make you cry and leave you feeling raw and emotional. I honestly couldn't have loved this book more." ~ lunalandbooks

"I was craving for Lila/Aleksey moments! It was so well built, it felt natural! I wish I could read more about them." ~ flowlessbooks

"One more time- do not mistake a vague small blurb that you think you understand have you thinking that this book is not something completely magnificent. I did not think one should care so much about being a virgin, and thought I knew what was going to happen- no I was wrong. And I am both completely heartbroken and brilliantly captivated by the beauty of this book." ~ happytailsandtales.blogspot.com

"It was an intense, fast-paced, unique ride. One I'm not going to forget so soon." ~ FOABBookBlog

"I really enjoyed reading this. I raced through it in the matter of a few days. I appreciated the way the author slowly revealed the main themes of this novel and more and more about the situations in the story as well. Well written!" ~ Olivia at Olivia's Catastrophe bookblog

Sinossi

ROMANCE SET IN A DYSTOPIAN FUTURE

In post-apocalyptic North America, sexual slavery is legal. Lila Velez desperately wants to lose her virginity before the troops visit her town and take it away by force. She makes plans to seduce her only friend. Lila does not love him, but he is the only man who has shown her true affection, an affection she is willing to take as a substitute for love.
Lila’s coping mechanism to cope with her mother’s loss is her secret. A secret that will bring her closer to Aleksey Fürst, a foreign, broody man who she distrusts because of his links to the troops and his rough, yet irresistible appearance. He offers Lila an alternative to her plans, a possibility that terrifies her…and tempts her in spite of herself.
With threats looming at every turn and no way to escape, Lila fears that falling in love will only lead to more heartache. The consequences of laying down her arms for Aleksey and welcoming hope might destroy more than her heart. They might force her to face the worst of her nightmares becoming a reality. Is love possible in a world that has forgotten what the human touch is?

NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR
* This is a book full of romance and anti-rape messages. I didn't write this book to romanticize violence against women but to tell the story of a girl who has to come of age under the most terrible circumstances.

* This full-length novel is a stand alone. No cliffhanger

* Alpha male hero. No cheating. No slut-shaming.

* Includes a discussion guide for bookclubs

* Possible triggers for abuse survivors.

I'm afraid I didn't like the story much, nor the MCs. There was this huge obsession about rape and all turned around that, and a couple of gruesome descriptions.

5.0 su 5 stelle original engrossing story & loved Aleksey 27 settembre 2015
Di Justirishgirl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I could not put this book down. I read it without taking a break, staying up too late to finish it. It was an engrossing, original and at times, heart breaking story. Reading about the rapes was hard but readers were warned and they were not as graphic as I expected.I loved the hero Aleksey. He falls head over heals with Lila and is faithful to her shortly after meeting her even though not a couple until near the end. It seemed to take forever before they were together and that was my only disappointment. I wanted them to together much sooner than they were and that included wanting them to make love sooner as well. They did not make love until over around 80% of the book. I loved when Aleksey's possessiveness and jealousy reared its head. It was hot. It was heart breaking too when the idea of Lila being with Rey gutted him. Some readers were upset that Lila kept trying to be with her best friend Rey, to give him her v-card. The closer it got to the ceremony the more desperate she was and she did not trust Aleksey. I do not blame her for trying to entice Rey. She was afraid of being raped and non-virgins tended to be safe from being recruited. I too would do anything to stop that too. Also her and Aleksey were not together during her attempts. Rey angered me. He wanted her and knew he could save her but kept getting cold feet. Also him thinking about OW during those attempts including calling out the OW name was irritating. If he wanted her like he said he did and loved her like a friend then he would man up. I loved when Lila's sister put both Aleksey and Rey in their place when they were fighting over Lila. She is right in what she said and they both deserved to be reminded that neither of them were innocent or wronged parties.

It was heart breaking to me what happened to a secondary character and what he did as a result of that occurring to him. Based on what was shown about his character and personality, I think it was unlike he would react to the trauma in the way he did. I liked the ending.

5.0 su 5 stelle A dark, dystopian story with more than a few surprises in store 5 ottobre 2015
Di Kitty Smith - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
When it comes to post apocalyptic stories you just know to expect a certain level of darkness and degradation of humanity, but The V Girl brings a surprising sense of realism to the table that I don't usually see in PAF. In Lila's world, rape is not only common place, it's actually legal. The soldiers have a line of thinking that if they have sex with a virgin, all their STDs will magically go away. This actually isn't a far fetched idea; it's a reality in places like Africa where men think having sex with a virgin girl will cure them of AIDS, and the younger she is, the more potent the cure. Perhaps that's what lends The V Girl a sort of horrific realism, knowing that this sort of thing isn't only plausible, but a sad reality in our world today.

It's also what fuels the plot. Lila is on a quest to lose her virginity, a most undesirable condition in her world and one she needs to rid herself of before Recruitment Day rolls around. Now ordinarily a girl looking to get laid would have no trouble finding what she's after, but in Lila's case things never quite go as planned. This adds a bit of humor to the story that helps soften up the otherwise harsh plot. There's also a surprise with Aleksey, who proves the exception to the rule that soldiers are heartless, rape happy beasts. I found all of the characters to be quite well developed, and Lila was both complex and entertaining. The story is compelling, even though there are scenes that had me cringing, and quite a few surprises along the way.

5.0 su 5 stelle The country in a civil war and people who are looking for lovers to share their tears with. 28 dicembre 2015
Di vermont reviewer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The author Mya Robarts shows us a story that takes place in the future. The country is in another civil war with the Nationals fighting against the Patriots. Lila as the main character is not looking forward to recruitment and does everything she can to not have to face this possibility. There are some great lines in the story. The plot and storyline has some twists and turns that are truly interesting.
Some of my favorite lines. "The human touch is that little snippet of physical affection that brings a bit of comfort, support, and kindness. It doesn't take much from the one who gives it, but can make a huge difference in the one who receives it." "You usually can't recall all the people you've shared laughs with. But you rarely forget the people you've shared your tears with." Aleksey and Lila the lovers that never were. This book is a great read.

5.0 su 5 stelle A great addition to the genre 31 dicembre 2015
Di Lucidity - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
“The V Girl” is a powerful, emotional read that immerses the reader into an extremely well-crafted world with dynamic, believable characters that is accompanied by a plot that is beyond unique – even by this genre’s standards.

The book in general can be very dark, and there are plenty of scenes where ‘morose’ would be considered an understatement. For me personally, that’s what makes the book so appealing because I find this kind of mood and tone is absolutely essential to any kind of book with a strong dystopian theme. Some authors will tell you how the characters are feeling, others with SHOW you how they’re feeling and transport you into that setting – author Mya Robarts does the latter. Highly recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle I love the discussion guide for bookclubs 3 febbraio 2016
Di lior - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I usually avoid romance books but the blurb sounded like something different and thought provoking. I was so pleasantly surprised. NO LOVE TRIANGLES, NO IRREALISTIC TEEN HEROINES THAT BECOME THE KEY TO THE REBELLION. At least that was the way with this book. I just hope that the author doesn’t turn Lila in a Dystopic wanna-be Katniss in future books or that she turns what was a fairly satisfactory relationship into a love triangle.

The theme might disturb some readers and certainly disturbed me. I’m always wary to read abuse books. I don’t think that sexual abuse should be treated in books as a crime against women, but as a crime against free-will. This is exactly what this book stands for. The victims are people of all ages, genres and even the rich people of Lila’s hometown and international ambassadors weren’t safe. That reflects real life. I love how Lila was so supportive of a friend who had the disgrace to be attacked. Did I mention that her friend is a male? A male who will face gossip? Her friend reacted in ways that I wasn’t expecting. This book is full of twists and turns.

There are a lot of dark controversial themes that might appeal feminists and anti-feminists alike. What is virginity? Should women under these circumstances take the initiative? Should Lila disregard her family’s and her own safety to bring about a change in her life? Is Lila right in her views of love and consent? What would you do under her circumstances? Lila’s dad takes down the mythical conceptions of virginity in a way that I found realistic and well- written. The best is that nothing feels preachy. This is a fast-paced read that I couldn’t put down. It’s not usual that social-themed books appeal to me that way and become page-turners to this very slow reader. I finished the book in a day.

The ending was too happy and convenient in my opinion. Almost a cop out although not quite as I found it believable and frankly necessary after all the dark, depressing topics. Overall I liked this book and I hope everyone read the discussion questions at the end of the book. I found those questions quite provoking in an already thought-provoking book.
