Here's what sixteen-year-old 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's, her posh all-girls school in Ireland, you'd feel like that too. Here everyone's expected to be Perfect Young Ladies - it's even a song in the painfully-cheesy and sexist musical they're putting on this year, 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 girls 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? Then Lauren discovers she's pregnant - the most girlish thing of all. So what kind of girl is she, if she's not even thinking about keeping the baby or even giving it up for adoption? What kind of girl is she to sneak out of the country so she can have an abortion abroad, lying to her parents and friends? What kind of girl is she to feel angry - rather than guilty - about it all? Claire Hennessy's second novel is a wryly funny, completely gripping look at sexuality, identity and growing up - all with Claire's trademark wit, intelligence and insight.
