A powerfully real and funny new story from the rising queen of teen, about learning to be true to yourself and that one click can last for ever... Amelia wants to be the best at everything - so she is gutted to come last on a list rating all the girls in her school, tagged with the nickname "maggot girl". Determined to change how people see her, she makes a popularity plan - but her cello-playing TikTok videos aren't as effective as she'd hoped... When cute new boy Evan kisses her though, Amelia wonders if he can help her lose her loser status. And in a moment of hope, she agrees to something she shouldn't. Soon she is being called worse names than maggot, and her best friend is banned from seeing her as she's a "bad influence". But Amelia's determined not to let one stupid mistake define her...she's determined to rise.
