Summary

A girl struggling with her sexual identity discovers she is pregnant after sleeping with her boyfriend.

Here's what Lauren knows: she's not like other girls. She also knows it's problematic to say that - what's wrong with girls? She's even fancied some in the past. But if you were stuck in St Agnes, her posh all-girls school, you'd feel like that too. Here everyone's expected to be Perfect Young Ladies, it's even a song in the painfully awful musical they're putting on this year. And obviously said musical is directed by Lauren's arch nemesis.

Under it all though, Lauren's heart is bruised. Her boyfriend thinks she's crazy and her best friend has issues of her own... so when Lauren realises she's facing every teenage girl's worst nightmare, she has nowhere to turn. Maybe she should just give in to everything. Be like other girls. That's all so much easier... right?

NOTE: Contains strong language, alcohol abuse and teen pregnancy. One of the central themes explored is around the law in Ireland that makes abortion illegal and so the central character travels to Liverpool to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.
