Thanks, Chloe Cuthbert .

Yes, most of this is taken from stories I’ve got directly from the mouths of teens who’ve talked to me about their experiences first hand.

The rest I’ve researched by reading first-hand accounts from reliable sources.

This is all very real.

Part two is coming out tomorrow, though it looks now like there’s going to be at least three parts. It was getting too long to try to finish it off in one go.
