What if everything you set yourself up to be was wrong? 

Frances has always been a study machine with one goal: elite university. Nothing will stand in her way. Not friends, not a guilty secret—not even the person she is on the inside. 

But when Frances meets Aled, the shy genius behind her favorite podcast, she discovers a new freedom. He unlocks the door to Real Frances, and for the first time she experiences true friendship, unafraid to be herself. Then the podcast goes viral and the fragile trust between them is broken. 

Caught between who she was and who she longs to be, Frances’s dreams come crashing down.  

Frances is going to need every bit of courage she has to confront her past, face her fears, and become her true self—by speaking up, not staying silent.
