"Written with humour and understanding, this is the book young people need." SARA PASCOE

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?
