I'm going to get personal here, but this is something people don't talk about and I think it's really important. The love triangle aspect was interesting but I have to say, the contrast between Monique’s ex-boyfriend Dom and Reggie was a really interesting one and proves that people’s perceptions of others aren’t always accurate. I can honestly say I’ve never read such a sex positive and inclusive YA fiction book before, and this was so pleasantly surprising.

I hope more than anything that any girl who has or is experiencing vaginismus feels seen and heard and valued. Though I can't imagine ever wanting to talk to my mum about my sex life and other personal topics, I know if I needed her she'd be there and would want to know what's going on in my life. Not only did I love the characters but the overarching themes concerning female empowerment and the notion that your body is your own are both incredibly powerful and important messages for young readers and I think this would be a great book to accompany any sex education curriculum in schools. podobało mi się też, że główna bohaterka próbowała odnaleźć prawdziwą siebie i zaczęła być świadoma, czego pragnie.A triumph in not just dynamite contemporary fiction but also in critiquing purity culture and the harm it can do. I loved when they went to that teen club, because I got to see a glimpse of all three of them in their element.

In high school, she challenged herself with to-do lists full of risk-taking items like ‘hug a random boy’ and ‘eat a cricket,’ which inspired her debut novel.

There’s a villain 180 that will give you whiplash, but other than that, the natural ending is quite clear (for anyone who’s ever seen or read a teen love triangle romance, anyway) and it rolls up right on time. She's torn between her parents who want the pure virginal daughter, and her boyfriend, Dom, who wants to explore the more intimate. Additionally, I know that as a society we are much more open and transparent about topics previously considered scandalous or taboo. Normally, with a storyline like this, you expect unforgiving, controlling and ignorant Christian parents.

Like most issue books, this is not an easy read, but it's poignant and transcendent as Charlie breaks more and more before piecing herself back together. I first fell in love with her writing in Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry which became my favourite book, and now I fell in love all over again. Everyone expects her and her boyfriend, Dom, to do everything properly (read: no sex before marriage).

Thanks to Goffney’s superb storytelling and dazzling prose, this candid exploration of a sensitive subject is also a heartfelt, funny, and irresistible read. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within thirty (30) days of the day we confirm via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund for defective goods. Okay, so this is one of those books where I appreciated what it was trying to do more than what it actually did do. Even though I'm sure that's language that is part of a grief and acceptance process, having her friends constantly pushing her to fix herself, even if it came from a place of support, kind of normalizes that sort of thinking rather than refuting it.
