I'm was so excited to read this when I was that the sequel 'No Shame' was coming out and after reading this one, the duology feels like a novel of two parts.

If you've picked up this book and read the blurb you know it's coming and if you haven't read the blurb the first sentence of the book tells you it's coming. Still, if this is a trigger for you please be safe while...

Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for the ARC.
This novel, which unflinchingly tells the story of Stacey's rape, is not a comfortable read but like Louise O'Neill's Asking for It we see a young girl put in an awful situation and working out how to come to terms with what happened to her.

I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I thought this book was overall a very powerful read, if only for the topic of rape it deals with. However, I would have liked for it to go into more depth with the characters, who sometimes felt a little...
