Praise

“A powerful, poignant story about a girl rewriting her story on her own terms. Jo Beckett’s journey of sexual and emotional agency is at once tender, painful, hilarious, and courageous.”
—Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

“Warm and funny and charming and smart.”
—Katie Cotugno, New York Times bestselling author of 99 Days

“No one captures the complexities of teenage girldom like Estelle Laure. A deeply felt, unflinchingly relatable, and ultimately empowering novel about the unjust double standards and dehumanizing labels that girls and women are often forced to navigate. Readers will cheer for Jo!”
Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned

“Jo’s introspective, funny first-person narrative voice is alive with poignancy and…pulls no punches in its emotional honesty. A relationship-focused story told with intelligence and wit.” 
—Kirkus Reviews

“Through Jo’s first-person narration, which often rings painfully true, Laure captures with painful precision one teen girl’s journey to self-discovery and self-awareness. A contemplative and compelling look at female sexuality and the double standards that accompany it.”
—Booklist

“Laure demonstrates a keen understanding of adolescent interactions, and not only romantic ones. Jo’s reflections on her relationships with family and friends—in particular her complicated feelings for Sam—are nuanced and insightful.”
—The Horn Book
