About the book
Roxy was 13 years old when she was coerced then blackmailed into sending explicit photos, which were spread around her school. The shame led to self-loathing. The blame led to a psychotic breakdown. Roxy started hearing voices. Then she started seeing things…
What happens when your teenager starts to lose it, and then you lose each other? What happens when you can’t tell your mother you desperately need help? And how can a family move past a devastating mental health crisis?
When You Lose It is a brutally honest true story, written from two perspectives, of consent, coercion and shattering consequences.
The book is suitable for ages 14+ and for adult reading groups
