About this deal

The Romance was lovely to watch blossom, sometimes the person who you least expect, to be the most supportive, turns out to be the rock you never knew you needed! This condition is apparently more common in victims of sexual trauma AND people who grew up in religious traditions with intense purity teachings. Mateo’s self-awareness and inner monologue at times make him seem older than 16, and, with significant turmoil in the main plot, some side elements feel underdeveloped. podobało mi się też, że główna bohaterka próbowała odnaleźć prawdziwą siebie i zaczęła być świadoma, czego pragnie.

I am always appreciative of sex-positive books in the YA lit canon, especially since so many alt-right groups are challenging books like these and trying to get them banned from libraries. From the way they treated her to the way they spoke about her to other people – it was clear who was the better of the two. Goffney has such an amazing voice in the YA world at the moment, and is writing stories and characters people are going to see themselves in and need to read about. Safe spaces composed predominantly of Black women, discussions regarding sexual health education's importance, and tender, healthy depictions of romance that exhibit respect for personal boundaries populate this sex-positive read, a compassionate novel that encourages teens to prioritize the control, safety, and comfort of their own bodies. opowieść o niezdrowej religijności, dorastaniu, odkrywaniu siebie, roli edukacji seksualnej, braku dostępu do opieki medycznej, budowaniu relacji zarówno w rodzinie jak i w przyjaźni, nadziei.Similarly to Monique, I've had a really unhealthy relationship with sex for most of my life and this book made me feel so safe and seen.

Now, I was going to wait until closer to the publication date to read this but I decided to treat myself to this book.

We mainly use Royal Mail Tracked 48 Service for goods which weight less then 2kg, all other goods will be delivered by a Courier. I love the ways in which she went into this serious subject matter, and also managed to bring it all together with her endearing cast of characters and adorable romance. I'm embarrassed to say that — even as a person who considers herself to be knowledgeable on sex education — I knew little about vaginismus or vaginal dilators before reading this book. And I think it’s so important as I truly believe forgiveness and love are two core principles of Christianity.

They have tried 29 times (yes this gets repeated) and had to stop because Monique was in so much pain and didn't want to continue. What I respect about my mother now is how fluid, intuitive and compassionate she's become and I aspire to be like that, only right from the beginning. The love triangle aspect was interesting but I have to say, the contrast between Monique’s ex-boyfriend Dom and Reggie was a really interesting one and proves that people’s perceptions of others aren’t always accurate.

With the help of her frenemy, Sasha, the overly zealous church girl Monique's mum pushes her to hang out with, and Reggie, the town's bad boy, Monique must go on trips to unknown and uncomfortable places to find the treatment that will help her.
