    When I just finished reading this book, my first reaction was “this book is going to change the world” and I still stand by that statement. There have been a lot of books with feminist themes and about feminist topics but none of them have been like this. None of which have had the potential to be this influential (at least not to the extent that I’ve read). This book is so powerful and inspirational, but also so necessary in this time. Slut-shaming is the norm in this society: girls who have a lot of sex is looked down upon, but at the same time girls who haven’t had sex are “prudes”. AND WHY?

    Laura Steven’s writing style is refreshing, new, shameless. Izzy, the character she created unlike any other character I’ve read before. I am struggling to form the right words to describe Izzy’s character. She is incredibly funny, unafraid to make fun of herself, she is bold, fierce and honest. She is shameless when it comes to sex and her sex-positive ways come under sudden scrutiny when pictures of her end up on the internet. Beside Izzy, there are some amazing side-characters: her best friend Ajita, who I adore to pieces, her other best friend Danny, and her grandmother Betty. I love how all the relationships are complex and imperfect. There are a lot of pretty sides but not all of them are pretty.

    I honestly could go on and on about how much I loved this book and how much you should all read it, but I think you should just experience it yourself.
