"Sophomores Abby, Brit, Christine, and Sasha are fed up. Hazelton High never has enough tampons. Or pads. Or adults who will listen. Sick of an administration that puts football before female health, the girls confront a world that shrugs--or worse, squirms--at the thought of a menstruation revolution. They band together to make a change. It's no easy task, especially while grappling with everything from crushes to trig to JV track but they have each others backs. That is, until one of the girls goes rogue, testing the limits of their friendship and pushing the friends to question the power of their own voices. Now they must learn to work together to raise each other up. But how do you stand your ground while raising bloody hell?"--Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

High school students embark on a crash course of friendship, female empowerment, and women's health issues.

This was the graphic novel I needed when I was in the sixth grade.

Normalizing menstruation AND showing the power of friendship?! Sign me up! I would recommend this book to parents and tweens, regardless of gender.

Friendship, bullying, activism, period poverty - it's all here.

A fantastic graphic novel normalizing the discussion around periods and the myriad ways in which women experience their periods. It is also a powerful story about friendship and embracing the qualities that make us unique. Young readers will be sure to find both comfort and empowerment in this inspiring novel.

I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK. Even though I'm at the opposite end of the reproductive cycle from the characters in this story, I can relate to each of them as they feel friendship, embarrassment, wonder, indignation, pain, and triumph as they navigate the reality of menstrual periods and high school.The graphic format makes it an easy read, the personalities of the characters are well defined, and their cause is righteous and just. To every female who has had a period, and every female who will, this book speaks to our experience.

I love this book. It is an exploration of female friendship and empowerment that both women and girls can enjoy. I was able to relate to each character in a different way, which made me eager to follow each girl's storyline. This is a powerful story of creating change and communicating openly, and I truly enjoyed it.

Gentle story, with the feel of something like the Babysitters Club. It'd be good for a tween that wants to learn/read a bit more about ideas around menstruation. My teen liked it.

A great graphic novel that explains getting your period, endometriosis, and other "girl"related topics in a manner that is easy for tweens and teens to understand and relate to.
