Seventeen-year-old Lacey Burke is the last person on the planet who should be doling out sex advice. For starters, she’s never even kissed anyone, and she hates breaking the rules. Up until now, she's been a straight-A music geek that no one even notices. All she cares about is jamming out with her best friends, Theo and Evita.
But then everything changes.
When Lacey sees first-hand how much damage the abstinence-only sex-ed curriculum of her school can do, she decides to take a stand and starts doling out wisdom and contraception to anyone who seeks her out in the girls' restroom. But things with Theo become complicated quickly, and Lacey is soon not just keeping everyone else’s secrets, but hers as well.

The Birds, The Bees, and You and Me is an important Young Adult and Contemporary book for young adults. I wish I had a book like this when I was younger because you get to know so much about friendship, love and everything you need to know about safe sex.
The Birds, The Bees, and You and Me was such a good book because it gives such a positive message, you should not be ashamed about wanting to experiment with your body or with the one you love. This book also shows how important friendship is and that’s something I really liked about this book.
I was planning on giving this book 4 stars because the characters got a bit on my nerves sometimes but I decided to give The Birds, The Bees, and You and Me 5 stars because of its message. I love that this book is sex positive and also informative.
I highly recommend this book to every young adult (or just everyone in general) because you can learn from this book, and the story in general is amazing!
