Summary "Both timely and timeless, a powerful exploration of abuse in its many forms, as well as the strength it takes to rise up and speak your truth."́ђؤAMBER SMITH, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be What kind of girl stays after her boyfriend hits her? The girls at North Bay Academy are taking sides. It all started when Mike Parker's girlfriend showed up with a bruise on her face. Or, more specifically, when she walked into the principal's office and said Mike hit her. But her classmates have questions. Why did she go to the principal and not the police? Why did she stay so long if Mike was hurting her? Obviously, if it's true, Mike should be expelled. But is it true? Some girls want to rally for his expulsiońђؤand some want to rally around Mike. The only thing that the entire student body can agree on? Someone is lying. And the truth has to come out. From New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Sheinmel comes an unflinching and resonant tale that examines how society treats women and girls and inspires the power to claim your worth.
