This is an accurate portrayal of what it's like to be a teenager in 2018. I don't think parents realize how prevalent sexual harrassment is in schools. Teachers don't care. All the topics and issues raised in this book are spot on. Harrington didn't polish the edges off adolescence in this novel to make a main character we'd love, and I respect that. This is an average teen girl. She can be irritating, but we all know we've been her at one point.
