LoveReading Says

This complex and twisty thriller has real psychological and emotional depth, with very authentic, relatable characters who simply leap off the page. Vividly voiced by Jo, a high school student, ostracized and slut shamed after stolen private photos of her are leaked to her classmates, she is unable to focus on schoolwork, consequently on academic probation and her parents completely fail to see her struggles.

What starts as an investigation into the disappearance of her one-time best friend Maddie, becomes a determination to reveal some much darker conspiracies and secrets and in the process to come to recognise what had been done to her. This is a testament to resilience and a heartfelt exploration of identity and self-acceptance that will undoubtedly strike a chord with young women grappling with what it’s like to be a girl in today's world.

The book is a page-turning read, but doesn't shy from honestly and realistically exploring important subjects such as toxic relationships, consent, trauma, misogyny, emotional abuse and the pain of broken friendships. Even the enjoyable romantic subplot sensitively explores the challenges of forming any sort of relationship after surviving sexual assault.

An extraordinary debut novel, this is both thought provoking and highly readable.
