Lucy has a poor self-opinion. She sees herself as overweight, unloved and confused about the future and her sexuality. She is self-harming, worrying over forthcoming exams and not on good terms with her parents. What’s more, the coronavirus is sweeping across England and the country is on the verge of lockdown. She’ll lose contact with her friends and be unable to develop a relationship with Kell, a boy in her school year, or with her beautiful best friend, Fortine. What does she do? Can she find an ally in these difficult times?
