In 1960, fourteen-year-old Laura meets French exchange student, Leon.
Her life will never be the same again.
Things start to change for Laura – first her moods, and then her body. Laura isn’t prepared for what she learns next – and doesn’t even know how it could have happened.
Sent away to save her family from shame, Laura meets girls just like her, whose families have given up on them – and they become a family for each other at the most difficult time in all their lives.
