Summary

Periods, sex and online shaming. An extraordinary verse novel from a bold new voice in YA fiction. 

During astronomy-lover Frankie's first sexual experience with the quiet and lovely Benjamin, she gets her period. It's only blood, they agree. But soon a graphic meme goes viral, turning their fun, intimate afternoon into something disgusting, mortifying and damaging. As the online shaming takes on a horrifying life of its own, Frankie begins to wonder: is her real life over?

What I needed when I was younger

an absolutely on the nose book for any young reader. a topic that should be more openly discussed and one I've been victim to in my youth. there should be absolutely no shame. it's just blood. incredible debut.
