PERIODS, SEX AND ONLINE SHAMING. AN EXTRAORDINARY VERSE NOVEL FROM A BOLD NEW VOICE IN FICTION.
During Frankie's first sexual experience with lovely Benjamin, she gets her period. It's only blood, they agree. No shame.
Then a graphic meme goes viral, turning their fun, intimate afternoon into something mortifying and damaging. And Frankie begins to wonder: is she disgusting?
As the online shaming takes on a horrifying life of its own, her universe implodes. But can laughter, bravery and the fiercest of friends help Frankie find her way out of the darkness?
